Relaxing Cruise Trips

If you are looking to combine the relaxation of laying on a beach with the excitement and enrichment of exploring new places and cultures then you may be best suited for a cruise. Cruises are a great way to travel as they allow you the amenities of a resort while also giving you the luxury of seeing several different cities, towns and places. Australia, given its four waterways and options, is a great place to start and/or end your cruise vacation. Many people take cruises from Australia, but some of the top among travelers include:

Carnival Spirit

As a brand, Carnival is known for their outstanding service and wonderful, family friendly cruises. The Carnival Spirit has a water park, gorgeous rooms, fine dining, and many other fantastic amenities.

Some tips for traveling by cruise from Australia include:

  • Choose the port that is best for you; Sydney is no longer the only cruise hub in the country. Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and South Australia are great departure options as well.
  • Circumnavigation; See the whole country by cruise if you can. Book well in advance to secure your spot on these popular cruises.
  • Northwest; though it is not a big secret anymore, the Northwest portion of Australia is still lesser known and less crowded.
