CIC: Princess Daphne Chartered For Cruises

On her return from a winter season in the Far East, Classic International’s veteran Princess Daphne (1955/15,833gt) is being chartered by Berlin-based operator Ambiente Kreuzfahrten from 29 April 2012 for a series of 28 cruises.

By the time she terminates the charter in Hamburg on 18 May 2013, 59 years will have elapsed since she was launched as Port Sydney at Swan Hunter’s Wallsend shipyard in the North East of England. Her schedule is diverse, with sailings to the Mediterranean, Baltic, Greenland, Iceland and around Great Britain. Following a drydocking in November in Lisbon, she sets off on a 153-day Round South America Cruise round trip from Lisbon on 16 December, returning on 2 May 2013.

Sistership Princess Danae (1955/ 16,531gt) is also busy during 2012, on charter to French NDS Voyages, starting the year with a 127-day World Cruise which starts at Marseille on 12 January. She then spends most of the summer in North European waters.
