A cruise is the best value holiday on the market

Think about it, no other type of holiday offers all of your accommodation, meals, entertainment and travel to multiple destinations as standard. Some cruise lines go further too – including extras such as tips, excursions and alcohol within the price, so you don’t have to keep putting your hand in your pocket while you’re on board!

A cruise holiday is one of the most-inclusive holidays available, allowing you to plan your holiday spend up front, which means that you can budget and save, whilst enjoying the amazing holiday experiences available on a cruise.

The single greatest thing about a cruise is the number of destinations you can visit on one trip – while unpacking only once.

And there is a whole world to explore – some of Aussies and Kiwis’ favourite destinations are:

  • Australia – Varied and glorious ports along some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, no wonder so many Aussies and Kiwis choose to cruise close to home
  • New Zealand – An incredible number or ports, stunning nature and great food and wine, New Zealand is a cruise destination not to be missed
  • South Pacific – Soft sand, aqua blue waters, and shaded palm trees and incredible culture, this picture perfect region is what holidays are designed for

Even the most luxurious hotels in the world struggle to compete with cruise lines when it comes to service.

The army of highly trained waiters, stewards, chefs and officers make your holiday what it is. Some cruise lines boast close to one staff member for every guest on board. Enough to cater for your every need. And the crew are there to assist with your shore excursions to make best use of your time ashore, and to ensure your time on-board is a memorable one.

Cruise lines offer fully trained and experienced kids counsellors, entertainment staff, sommeliers, chefs, waiting staff and helpful advisors to make sure that your holiday exceeds every expectation.
