Ruby Princess makes maiden call to Sydney
The 290m Ruby Princess makes its first-ever visit to Sydney — the second ship to make its maiden call to the city in the 2019/20 cruise season.
Sydney Harbour welcomed the Ruby Princess to the Overseas Passenger Terminal today (23 October) as the ship made its maiden call to the city.
Operated by Princess Cruises, the Ruby Princess is 290m crown-class ship that was built in Italy in 2008. Refurbished just a year ago, the ship has capacity for 3,080 passengers plus 1,200 crew.

Five ships make their maiden calls to Sydney this cruise season with the remaining vessels being the Explorer Dream on 27 October, the Carnival Splendour on 10 December and the Boudicca on 31 December.
