Princess Cruises takes Australian History to sea

Princess Cruises has created history with a new onboard exhibition showcasing major moments from Australia’s past.

The exhibition, titled Defining Moments in Australian History has been developed in partnership with the National Museum of Australia and will feature onboard the cruise line’s record fleet of five Australian-based ships until 2021.

The Museum has designed and produced 20 panels that provide an introduction to Australia and its people, for display on Princess’ ships.

These panels form part of the onboard exhibit, giving an overview of key events that define Australian history, along with several artifacts, exclusive to the Princess exhibition, which are on show for guests to view. These include convict leg irons, a Dead Man’s Penny (memorial plaque) and Aboriginal stone tools.

Princess Cruises Vice President Australia & New Zealand Stuart Allison said: “We’ve had a great reaction from our guests. On exhibition days the atrium is packed with people who are curious to see what moments have made the top 100, they love it.”
