Australian cruise lovers can see half the world by ship on a line voyage next year from Sydney to Southampton in England with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines whose smaller and more intimate ships showcase traditional seafaring heritage and the calming pleasures of classic cruising.
And to add value to the epic experience, the exclusive Australian representative for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, Cruise Traveller, which specialises in small ship cruises, has added flights back home and three free nights in London, creating a package that also comes with savings of A$1275 per person for bookings made by March 31, 2023.
Designed exclusively for Australians, Cruise Traveller’s new 53-night fly, stay and cruise package – ‘Southern Land to South England’ – begins in Sydney on February 27, 2024, when guests board Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ stylish 1360-guest ship, Borealis, for a 50-night voyage to Southampton and southern England. The spacious ship boasts eight bars and lounges, six restaurants, two pools, two jacuzzis, a fitness centre and sweeping teak decks from which to watch half the world sail by.
Able to access smaller and more remote ports bigger ships cannot reach, Borealis will take globe-trotting guests to 20 destinations in 15 countries including Papua New Guinea, Indonesia , Singapore, Thailand, India, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Malta and Spain.
The two-hemisphere voyage embraces a kaleidoscope of cultures, history and scenery from the dragons and jungles of Komodo Island, the beaches of Phuket and the temples and spices of India to the ancient souqs and citadels of Oman, the futuristic skyline of Dubai, the storied sands of the Holy Land and the whitewashed houses and chalk-white beaches in the Greek Islands.
At the end of the cruise, which includes onboard beverages, guests will stay in London for three free nights, with an evening ghost tour by coach also included, before flying back to Australia.
