Australian small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller, has capitalised on a rare, exotic cruise itinerary in 2024 featuring pristine, secluded and rarely visited destinations across the Indian Ocean, plus the rugged Kimberley region, to create an ultra-luxe and totally inclusive holiday package from the Maldives to Australia.
Cruise Traveller’s exclusive, new fly/cruise package includes everything door to door, from flights, hotels, the cruise, dining and drinks to excursions, tips, home and hotel transfers throughout and private butler service.
The 34-night ‘Maldives to Australia’ package features a tropical, seldom-offered expedition voyage in May, 2024, from the Maldives to Darwin aboard Silversea’s luxurious, boutique ship, Silver Cloud. The package offers savings extensive of A$10,300 per person and a bonus US$300 per twin suite onboard spending credit for bookings made by August 31, 2023.
The five-star journey will take adventurous cruise lovers to a string of secluded, remote and idyllic destinations across the Indian Ocean seldom featured in cruise itineraries including tiny coral atolls with powder-white beaches lined by coconut palms in the Maldives, Lakswadeep and Andaman Islands and the lost, paradisiacal isles of Indonesia, plus the awe-inspiring scenery of Australia’s vast Kimberley.
Cruise Traveller’s indulgent sojourn begins on May 7, 2024, with an executive, private car transfer from home/hotel to the airport (within 80km) and a flight to Male in the Maldives from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth, followed by a night in a Male hotel. Next day, guests will board the elegant Silver Cloud, for a 32-night voyage to Darwin.
The voyage aboard Silver Cloud will visit an exotic range of destinations including the picture-perfect Maldives islands of Vangaaru and Uligamu, the crystal-clear, emerald waters of Cheriyam, Tinnakara and Minicoy islands in the Indian Ocean archipelago of Lakswadeep, Cochin in India, the culturally-rich ports of Galle and Hambantota in Sri Lanka, the colourful coral reefs of the Andaman Islands and the dense, tropical, orangutan-filled rainforests of Sumatra.
Cosmopolitan Singapore is featured followed by a strong of postcard-perfect tropical islands in Indonesia boasting turquoise waters, chalk-white beaches, coconut trees, stunning snorkelling and traditional villages – isles such as Menyawakan, Pulau Satonda, the dragons of Komodo and Savu. Silver Cloud will then visit Broome in Western Australia before taking guests on a spectacular, five-day journey along the Kimberley’s rugged, waterfall-studded coastline. The cruise ends in Darwin where there’s a night in a hotel before the flight back home to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth and an executive, private car transfer from the airport back home (within 80km).
Onboard the expedition cruise, all guests will enjoy the services of a personal butler, an open bar throughout the cruise and complimentary excursions ashore, adding to the non-stop indulgence.
