Princess Cruises sold two vessels, Sun Princess and Sea Princess, in accordance with parent company Carnival Corporation’s plan to remove less efficient ships from its fleet. The buyers were not disclosed in the announcement.

Sun Princess and Sea Princess contributed to significant growth in Australian cruising,” said Jan Swartz, president, Princess Cruises. “Both ships defined the premium cruise experience with Australians and New Zealanders spending close to 14 million nights aboard these ships. While it is never easy to say goodbye to any ship in our fleet, this will allow us to deploy newer ships enhancing our offerings for Australia cruisers and focus on bringing into service exciting newbuilds like the upcoming delivery of Enchanted Princess.”

Sun Princess debuted in the Caribbean in 1995 as the first Sun Class ship. The 2,000-guest ship was once one of the largest in the world and sailed in the Panama Canal, Alaska and more before calling Australia its home port in 2007. The Sun Princess was also the first foreign-flagged cruise ship offering sailings specifically designed for the Japanese in 2013.

Sea Princess, another 2,000-guest vessel, became known as a world cruise ship after completing six full-world cruises, and traveling an equivalent of 35 times around the world.

With the two vessels sold, Princess Cruises will cancel booked itineraries, including all Sun Princess sailings Dec. 28, 2020–Aug. 14, 2021, and all Sea Princess sailings Dec. 23, 2020–Nov. 9, 2021. Booked guests and travel advisors will be notified about the cancellations, and alerted on how to re-book future cruises or receive a full refund.

Four Seasons Mexico City Review

I arrived in Mexico City on a sunny late afternoon and zipped through light traffic from Benito Juarez International Airport to the heart of Mexico City, Paseo de la Reforma. Four Seasons Mexico City sits in the middle of the bustling area; but once you arrive in the covered driveway, you are transported into a sense of calm, art and luxury.

The Resort at Paws Up Review

I took a much-needed vacation to somewhere I’d never been before but had heard about for years: Montana. We chose The Resort at Paws Up outside of Missoula, as it blends miles of open land and outdoor activities with luxury accommodation and service.

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States.
