World Cruises and Incredible Journeys

Cruise the World - no button

The cruise ship becomes your floating home as you pass from one continent to the next, discovering new countries, making new friends and experiencing the amazing cities, islands, cultures and destinations along the way. But did you know there are other cruises that also offer a longer duration and a more in depth look at various parts of the world

Brendan’s pick – San Diego to Auckland
34 glorious nights island hopping your way across the South Pacific. I love this itinerary as you can get the flying over with in one hop then join your floating home to island hop your way back to Auckland. Oceania is one of my favourite cruise lines, their ships are more like an elegant country club and their food is world renowned. This is no stuffy cruise line, formal wear is not required, just smart casual is the order of the day & night which fits in well with this laid back beach focused itinerary

Pauline’s pick – Auckland to Hong Kong
I have a soft spot for the classic Cunard three Queens and the Ocean Liner Queen Mary 2 is the pride of the fleet. The world’s only true Ocean Liner she just stands out for her classic elegance and fine lines. When you step on board you feel like you have been transported to a bygone era with classic English High teas, a full size ballroom complete with a dance band, an amazing English pub and yes it also has the only Planetarium at Sea that you simply must not miss.

Janice’s pick – Auckland to Honolulu via Australia & Bali
This is such a different itinerary, it has that appeal of East meets West and truly is an amazing way to see the best of the Pacific on a meandering round a bout route.  I also love that it has 3 nights in Bali allowing plenty of time to explore this island paradise. Just like Brendan’s pick this is also on Oceania Regatta, my favourite spot on board is the Canyon Ranch Spa. Treatments do cost a little extra but there are not many places in the world you can get to experience this level of spa’s & beauty treatments,

Kay’s Pick – Sydney to Singapore
I had to pick this one as it is on one of my favourite all action ships, Ovation of the Seas, it is not truly a world cruise but it is a great option for those wanting to experience a longer cruise with plenty to do on the way. This ship has it all so for a longer journey it is just perfect as there is so much choice of things to do on board during the sea days that you truly don’t know where to start. If you are feeling a little overwhelmed by the choice of activities, shows and entertainment then in my view you have two choices. Order a drink from the robotic bar tender, it truly is a show in itself. Or chill out in the amazing adults only solarium area at the back of the ship it is a true sanctuary

Departure Date: 26th March 2018
Departure Port: Sydney
Duration: 14 nights
Royal Caribbean – Ovation of the Seas
Destinations: Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin, Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Singapore
