The "Sky Princess" was operated by Princess Cruises and was based at Sydney operating regular cruises from there to the Pacific Islands and New Zealand depending on the season. During the southern summer season the cruises would concentrate on New Zealand and also take in Tasmania and Melbourne while in winter the main area of operation would be the central South Pacific Islands as far east as Papua New Guinea.

During the middle of 2000 she was replaced by the newer "Regal Princess" and sold to Asian owners.
