The Ruby Princess joins the Majestic Princess sailing out of Sydney and generating a combined landmark capacity of over 100,000 guests.

During her maiden season, the Ruby Princess will be activated with Princess MedallionClass, making her the first “smart-ship” homeported in Australia.

The Ruby Princess will depart Sydney this afternoon on a 10-night cruise to Brisbane.
