For those who are yet to cruise it can be a challenge on where to start looking and what suits your needs. Here we aim to provide you with the best tips to get the most out of your dream cruise:
Highly recommend a pre/post cruise stay to get the most out of your destination
You’ll be amazed at how different and diverse the cities of Australia are
Australian cruise season is October to April
A payable visa is required for Australia
STAFF TOP TIP:
Circumnavigation cruises (or bottom end cruises) around the south of Australia take in the stunning Esperance. Visit the pink lake, see the whitest sands Australia has to offer or just meet a kangaroo sunbathing on the beach! This is my all time favourite destination in Australia
South Pacific – sailing from Australia or New Zealand means numerous days at sea before you even hit the South Pacific. The nearest and lesser known islands of New Caledonia and Isle of Pines are reached first and are ideal for a 7 night cruise, if however you want to cruise to the more popular islands of Fiji you will need to cruise for a longer duration
Know the customs – woman should cover up in a modest way to fit in with the Islanders. Also tipping isn’t a common practice
New Zealand – a day excursion to the Bay of Islands (north of Auckland) is a must visit, it’s one of my favourite places in New Zealand
When visiting Napier, head to the tourist office for your free self-guided tour map of the stunning art deco buildings
Come back next week for CLIA Cruise Month focus on Aisa
