Originally built in 1955 as a cargo-passenger ship, under the name Port Sydney, she underwent her first conversion in 1974 into a luxury passenger cruise ship. Since then she has been rebuilt and refurbished a number of times and has sailed under the names Daphne, Switzerland and Ocean Monarch.
Her last major refurbishment took place in the beginning of 2008, as she came under the Classic nternational Cruises banner, and saw her change her name to Princess Daphne. She now boasts 241 of the largest cabins found on any cruise ship today, of which 27 are suites. Her sturdy hull and very spacious cabins make her an ideal sea-going vessel and the perfect ship for both short and long distance ocean cruising. Her attractive and well appointed public areas, wide exterior decks and very comfortable cabin accommodation make Princess Daphne the perfect choice for classic cruise aficionados around the world.
Carrying no more than 550 passengers, Princess Daphne is particularly warm and welcoming as she benefits from a uniquely personalized and attentive service that can only be found aboard a vessel of her size.
After a fun day ashore or a relaxing day on the deck or by the pool, savour the fine meals, pastries and desserts prepared for you by our international chefs in the elegant surroundings of the ship’s restaurant or Lido Buffet. In the evening, experience the varied entertainment programme in the ship’s lounges and bars, and why not try one of our many cocktails.
With a very experienced and dedicated staff and crew, who will ensure to be at your disposal whenever needed, MV Princess Daphne offers a unique and memorable cruising experience for an unforgettable vacation at sea!
