The Canadian trio accused of smuggling 95kg of cocaine into Australia aboard a cruise ship will remain behind bars as their case is set down for committal in December.

Isabelle Lagace, 28, appeared via video link at Sydney's Central Local Court on Wednesday, with Magistrate Robert Williams adjourning her case until November 2.

She and her co-accused, Andre Tamine, 63, and Melina Roberce, 22, had their bail refused in August and a committal hearing has been set for December 16.

The three were arrested in August after authorities allegedly discovered two suitcases containing cocaine, with an estimated value of around $31 million, aboard the Sea Princess cruise ship, which had docked in Sydney.
