MV Princess Daphne

Formerly known as Port Sydney, the Princess Daphne is a fine addition to Classic International Cruises’ fleet of cruise ships. Lovingly designed to provide passengers with a spaciously elegant environment on long cruises, the Princess Daphne boasts one of the lowest passenger-to-space ratios of any other ship and as such is sure to provide an intimate cruise experience.

The service onboard the Princess Daphne is first-class and with only 508 passengers sailing at any one time, you can expect to get to know the staff and your fellow passengers well, meaning there is ample time for making new friends with common interests. This is often said to be one of the joys of sailing on a small ship cruise.

The Princess Daphne is perfect for cruising to great destinations like the Far East, and throughout 2011 will be visiting the region’s best ports of call including Da Nang (Vietnam), Shanghai (China), and Bangkok (Thailand).


Accommodation onboard the Princess Daphne is similar to that of which you would find on other Classic International cruise ships with passengers offered a choice of cabins and suites.

Accommodation includes:

90% of cabins/suites have ocean-view windows or portholes.

  • Television with satellite access
  • Telephone
  • Full size bath/shower
  • Larger suites also include a veranda and sitting area.


Dining onboard the Princess Daphne is an experience in itself. Fresh produce is always used and prepared to the highest of standards with menu’s consisting of seafood, steaks, salads and Asian influenced cuisine - even a traditional roast dinner! Desserts are also a highlight, with a choice of baked Alaska, trifle, cheese cake, strawberry tart or ice-cream.


When not exploring an exciting port call, there is always lots to do onboard the Princess Daphne. During the day, you can indulge yourself with an onboard spa treatment in the wellness centre or pass the time in the library. After dark, you can relax in one of the ships 4 bars or enjoy a show in the main lounge.
