Sun Princess cruises under Sydney Harbour Bridge

Date Posted: 26 Oct 2007
Carnival Cruises has made history after one of its fleet became the largest passenger ship to pass under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Sun Princess, measuring forty nine metres above the water line and weighing 77,441 tonnes', made her record-breaking journey under the bridge with about two-and-a-half metres to spare.

Meanwhile, passengers enjoying a cruise holiday aboard the Sun Princess were able to enjoy the sights of Darling Harbour as the vessel docked there before sailing back under the bridge for Brisbane.

"Not only has Sun Princess set a new record by becoming the largest cruise ship to sail under Sydney's iconic bridge, she'll also set a new standard for cruising in Australia by offering a premium cruise experience for Australians year-round," commented Ann Sherry of Carnival Cruises.

The Sun Princess is now destined for cruises to New Zealand, Alaska, Russia, China and Japan.

Passengers travelling onboard this vessel can enjoy 24-hour complimentary room service, a spa and gymnasium, three pools and six whirlpool spas.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
