A long-term favourite on round-the-world voyages, Australasia and the Pacific are now very much cruise destinations in their own right. And, why wouldn't they be? From iconic seaside cities to idyllic islands, this is a region tailor-made for luxury cruising.
In Australia, the coast is packed with a seemingly endless list of highlights. Sydney Harbour, with its world-famous bridge and opera house, is one of the world's city greats, while to the north, Queensland's island idylls offer sugar-white sands and direct access to the Great Barrier Reef. Or, perhaps you'd prefer to head off grid, pairing the marine delights of Ningaloo with the Outback austerity of the Kimberley.

Then, across the Tasman Sea, New Zealand's natural wealth encompasses wildlife-filled islands, soaring mountain ranges and colossal glaciers, matched by the urbane charms of Auckland and Wellington, the adventure-packed delights of Queenstown and the fine wines of Napier and Marlborough Sound. Or, you might consider something truly tropical, sailing between the island jewels of Fiji, Bora Bora and Tahiti in the South Pacific, or exploring the unique tribal culture and outstanding wildlife of remote Papua New Guinea.

These are just a handful of the options available though. you can also tailor-make your Australasia cruise by adding a city stay, wildlife holiday or other excursion before or after you sail; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
