The luxury superliner “Sun Princess” (below) passes under the Sydney Harbour Bridge lately on her way out of the harbour after a small halt of few hours in Sydney. Weighing 77,441 tonnes and with height of 49.4 metres (162 feet) above the waterline, Sun Princess became the largest passenger ship ever to pass under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, clearing it by approximately two-and-a-half meters (8.2 feet).
The premier ship holds the capacity of carrying 1950 passengers and plans to return to Sydney early November when she will be touted as the first premium cruise ship to be based in Australia year round.
