16-Night Australia Intensive Voyage – Perth to Melbourne

Luxury Cruise

Celebrate the New Year in the land of Oz

Give the gift of the land down under with a 16-night Australian cruise. We’ll cross the Great Australian Bight, visiting nine ports, culminating in an unforgettable New Year’s celebration in Sydney. Want more? Begin your journey even earlier with one of our pre-voyage land programs.

This adventure begins in Perth, followed by stops in Albany to view its beautiful Victorian architecture, and Esperance—home of Cape Le Grand National Park. Then, celebrate Christmas at sea, where we’ll take care of the feasts and festivities while you unwrap two days of relaxation.

After Christmas, the gifts keep coming, starting with a late stay in Adelaide, then a hop over to Kangaroo Island. Next up is Portland. Take a walk along the picturesque waterfront to view the city’s original architecture, including buildings that date back as early as 1845. After a day at sea enjoying onboard shopping, entertainment, and relaxing in the spa, you’ll discover Eden, a rugged paradise on Earth that that lives up to its name.

We arrive in Sydney just in time to ring in the New Year. Sydney is renowned for its New Year’s celebrations, including aerial displays, traditional aboriginal ceremonies, and fireworks high above the iconic Opera House. And, since Sydney is such a beautiful port, we’re staying for two nights. That means more time to relax on Bondi Beach before we conclude our adventure in Melbourne.
