The visit to the Gallipoli Peninsula was a highlight of Dawn Princess' inaugural world cruise, which left Sydney in early July. It's also the first visit to Anzac Cove by an Australian-based cruise ship. Dawn Princess Captain Goodway held a ceremony on the ship's top decks in memory of the thousands of Australians and New Zealanders who died at Anzac Cove.

The passengers who attended the ceremony included World War I veterans and descendants of soldiers who fought at Gallipoli. Dawn Princess will return to Anzac Cove again next year during her 2010 world cruise.
