Adventure seekers and luxury travellers can now indulge in a unique and luxurious voyage around Tasmania’s wild and remote locations with Cruise Traveller’s new ‘Tempting Tasmania’ package. Departing on December 14, 2023, the nine-night package offers guests an exclusive circumnavigation of Tasmania from Hobart, aboard Ponant’s luxurious and elegant boutique ship, Le Laperouse.
This once-in-a-lifetime voyage is timed to coincide with the summer solstice, which means guests can enjoy the longest days of daylight in any Australian state. Due to the southern latitudes, Tasmania enjoys longer daylight and twilight than any other state, with one hour more daylight than Sydney in late December.
Travellers on this exclusive voyage will visit more isolated and rarely visited destinations, including World Heritage-listed Port Davey on Tasmania’s wild west coast, King Island, famous for its gourmet delicacies and crystal-clear waters, and the penguins and seabirds on the tiny, deserted island of Ille des Phoques off the east coast. Guests will also enjoy the fine wines of the Tamar Valley near Launceston, the wealth of wildlife and history on beautiful Maria Island, historic Port Arthur, and the seals, dolphins, and Australia’s highest sea cliffs along Tasmania’s Tasman and Forestier Peninsulas.
Le Laperouse, with its refined and intimate yacht-like elegance, fine dining restaurants, plush lounges, theatre, pool, and personalized service, offers guests a luxurious and memorable journey exploring Tasmania’s rich natural and cultural heritage. All staterooms on the ship offer a private balcony or terrace, allowing guests to take in the stunning scenery from the comfort of their own cabin.
To make this unique voyage even more tempting, Cruise Traveller is offering savings of A$5150 per couple and almost half-price for solo travellers, plus a bonus credit of A$400 per person to help cover the cost of flights to and from Tasmania. The package is available from A$9370 per person, twin-share, in a Prestige Balcony stateroom, while solo travellers can enjoy even bigger savings, with the package available from only A$11,980 in a Prestige Balcony stateroom.
Adding to the allure of the journey are guided, complimentary excursions on Zodiacs and ashore, as well as the indulgence of complimentary beverages all day onboard Le Laperouse. Cabins are subject to availability, and the savings and exclusive air bonus apply to bookings made only with Cruise Traveller by March 31, 2023.
