Oceania Cruises – a Taste of the Pacific
Whether you are new to cruising by ship or have done it several times before, you are in for an amazing boat cruise experience when you embark on an Oceania cruise holiday. Cruising holidays are like no other holiday on earth! No living out of a suitcase – no worrying about flight delays – just wonderful relaxing days when your most difficult decisions revolve around what time to get up, which restaurant to eat at, and which deck to relax on! Once you have made your selection from the myriad of Cruise Ship Holiday options available to you, all you have to do is relax in the knowledge than a fantastic holiday experience awaits you. Lucky Australians and Kiwis have the benefit of living in an area where there are oceans just brimming with wonderful holiday opportunities right on your doorstep. With several Departure Ports within easy reach all over Australia, you have no excuse to put off this experience of a lifetime.
Cruising in the Oceania region, which includes Australia, New Zealand and the islands of the tropical Pacific Ocean offers a great diversity of destinations, from the tropical islands of New Caledonia and Vauatu, to the waterfalls and glaciers of Milford Sound in Southern New Zealand. Most of the major cruise lines offer boat cruises from ports all over Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, and Adelaide) and also from Auckland in New Zealand, and new departure ports and ship cruising itineraries are added all the time.
You also have plenty of choices when it comes to the duration of your cruise. You could choose to go on a 3 night “cruise-to-nowhere” trip out of Sydney – perfect if you have very limited time but still want to experience cruising or to celebrate a special occasion such as a milestone birthday or an anniversary in a unique way. A very popular choice is an 8 or 10 day trip which includes some of the tropical islands; typically, you could sail out of Sydney, have two days at sea relaxing and then 4 to 6 days visiting some of the islands before returning to your departure port. At the other end of the scale, you could choose to sail around Hawaii, Tahiti and the South Pacific for 30+ nights, or even sail all the way to Venice, Italy, in just 44 nights!
Many people who have not yet experienced cruising regard it as a very expensive holiday option, but this is just not true; when you consider that the holiday includes your very comfortable cabin accommodation, all transport costs and top-rate, restaurant quality meals as often as you want them, cruising is not expensive at all, and there are cruise options to suit all budgets.
