While it’s getting harder and harder to find last-minute cruise deals, especially to the most popular cruise destinations – the Caribbean, Alaska, and Europe – there are still areas of the world where great cruise deals can be found. One such example is in the South Pacific.
Though more and more travelers are heading to the Land Downunder for their vacations, few realize the grand possibilities of cruising Australia. With the fabulous coastal cities of Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, plus the amazing Great Barrier Reef, Australia is an ideal cruise destination.
Most Australian cruises take place during the summer months (winter in the northern hemisphere), with itineraries ranging anywhere from 4-40 days. While Sydney is the most popular departure city, most cruises travel along the Pacific Coast of Australia, allowing passengers to disembark at Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane, Cairns, and Port Douglas for diving adventures in the Great Barrier Reef.
While you have traveled so far, you might as well see New Zealand while you are there! The beauty of cruising is how easy and affordable it is to see both great nations of the South Pacific. See Auckland, the “City of Sails”, Wellington, New Zealand wine country, and Milford Sound. What a wonderful voyage!
