Even the shortest of cruises–a two night ocean getaway–offers a tall stack of far-flung adventure. Depending on your departure port, you will be sailing on one of two ground-breaking ships, Ovation of the Seas® or Quantum of the Seas®. Packed with first-at-sea-feats–like skydiving on Ripcord® by iFLY®, surfing on FlowRider®, and shaking it up on bumper cars–this is playing like you mean it. Of course you can expect epicurean adventure as well, with such palate-pleasing options as Izumi Japanese Cuisine and Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver. Top Broadway shows and jaw-dropping multimedia productions, as well as a full lineup of bars and lounges, many with live music, will fill your evenings with bold experiences you won’t soon forget.
Choose a 4-night sampler to cruise to Eden, New South Wales' most southerly town and a whale-watching mecca. Visit Ben Boyd National Park, and follow its rugged cliffs to Boyd Tower and Red Point Lookout, where breathtaking views greet hikers. And don’t leave Eden without picking up some Darell Lea chocolate or flavoured licorice, which many consider the world’s best!
A longer version of our popular 7-Night Queensland Cruise, this cruise sails from Sydney, adding exciting Port Douglas to the itinerary. Saunter along the town’s vibrant marina to your choice of waterfront restaurants, featuring a bounty of freshly-caught fish. Settle into a table, sipping something cold while eying the stunning collection of berthed international superyachts.
As a portal to two UNESCO World Heritage-listed natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef and the expanses of the Daintree Rainforest, there are a great number of over-the-top excursions in Port Douglas. Go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef for a life-changing experience that involves sea turtles and a profusion of marine life. Trek into Daintree Rainforest which, at an estimated 180 million years old, is deemed the world’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest. And delve deep into the rich Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage with a guided walk and tour.
Departing from Sydney onboard Enchantment of the Seas®, this unforgettable odyssey will take you to Isle of Pines in New Caledonia, Suva and Lautoka in Fiji and Lifou on Loyalty Islands. In Isle of Pines, Queen Hortense’s cave awaits you, a magical location which, according to local lore, served as a hiding place for a queen seeking to escape intertribal conflict. Also, plan to visit the wondrous Oro natural pool, a place of such spectacular beauty it’s hard to believe you are not on a Hollywood set. In Suva, the Fiji Museum holds a treasure trove of exhibits and objects dating back about 3,700 years to when seafarers first settled the Pacific Islands. You’ll feel like one of those early settlers in Lifou, where pristine and secluded beaches–with brilliant white sands and crystalline waters–speak of a time untouched by the stamp of civilization.
