Travellers have long been seduced by the lure of exotic locations, priceless treasures and the opportunity to follow some of world’s most epic ocean journeys. The siren’s call continues to tempt intrepid travellers eager to embark on adventures at seas where the prize is unparalleled sights and indelible memories, to the tune of insightful lectures and discussions on board. You could be escaping to the icy extremes of Antarctica or the Arctic on an icebreaker, taking an expedition ship to the Galápagos Islands, or following ancient trade routes through tropical locales. Varying from the basics to five-star facilities, small ships to large vessels, expedition and adventure cruising is a very special experience that can’t be denied.
Why travel to a far-flung locale when you can enjoy the indulgence, relaxation and amenities of a luxury liner on home-grown shores. There are plenty of cruise holidays close to home where you can step on board for an overnight jaunt, a long weekend or longer to see your own backyard and the myriad of paradisiacal islands nearby. Cruise into our capital cities, through the stunning Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. Sail by Australia’s Top End, step off in Kangaroo Island or venture further afield to New Zealand, Norfolk Island and New Caledonia. Being girt by sea means Australia has endless cruising potential.
Whether it’s an extended clan gathering or a coterie of just your nearest and dearest, a family cruise is a wonderful way to bring everyone together for a shared holiday experience. There are many reasons why a cruise is a great option for a family holiday including convenience, variety and an endless list of irresistible destinations. The best part? An all-inclusive family cruise package takes the hassle out of organising a group holiday, with all your own main meals, accommodation, entertainment, activities and onshore excursions included. For a bonding experience like no other, now you can see the world with the whole family in tow on a luxury family cruise.
It’s said that the sky is the limit, and so a fly/stay/cruise holiday allows you to board your dream cruise regardless of where it departs. Save money and time by purchasing your flights, accommodation and cruise tickets all in one convenient bundle; add on some time before or after your cruise; and rest assured knowing every little detail will be covered. If your cruise begins and ends in different ports, an all-inclusive package will save you purchasing separate one-way flights to and from these destinations too. For stress-free convenience, a fly/stay/cruise travel package is your ticket to a truly relaxing holiday. So now your only concern is, where do you want to go?
With so many enchanting rivers and waterways winding their way across the globe, a river cruise offers a wonderful way to explore – one that promises a more intimate atmosphere, unique ports of call and, often, state-of-art-facilities bound to impress. Enjoy indulgent culinary creations, more individual attention and entertaining lectures delivered by local experts and guides. Some of the newer ships also flaunt swimming pools, luxury suites, butler service, fitness centres, open sun decks and alfresco dining areas. So, where could you go? Europe is the perennial favourite, but Yangtze in China, the Mekong Delta and the mighty Mississippi are just as tempting, to name a few.
Small ship cruising is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the massive, thousands-strong cruise ships zig-zagging from port to port. Ranging from river barges, fancy yachts and sports cruisers right up to mini cruise ships with a few hundred guests on board, small ship cruising allows for a level of delightful indulgence and personal service that sets it apart from the huge behemoths of the sea. Venture to remote locations and experience cultural and wildlife in a way that is authentic and engaging, without the crowds. From the Arctic and Antarctica to smaller destinations in the Mediterranean and tiny islands across the Pacific, small ships equal big experiences.
