First-Time Cruiser? Here Are 5 Things You Need to Know

Australia’s love affair with cruising continues, with more than a million travellers taking a cruise in 2014. We spent 10 million days at sea that year – almost 40 per cent of them in the South Pacific – and every day someone new discovers the joys of a cruising holiday. But there are a few things every would-be cruiser should know before they take to the high seas.

Best Cruises for Kids in Australia and the Pacific

Cruising is becoming increasingly popular with families, particularly ones with young or teenage children. Today’s big cruise ships offer an amazing array of kid-friendly activities, entertainment and shore tours – and if you’re looking for a budget-friendly holiday that doesn't involve taking a long flight, there’s more choice of cruises in our region than ever before.

The Best Last-Minute Christmas Cruises to the South Pacific

It’s easy for Australians to imagine a Christmas without snow. But can you consider a Christmas with no carols, cheesy movies, boughs of holly or the jolly bearded one? Well neither can the major cruise lines, which come over all Christmassy for the festive season while simultaneously whisking you away. The joys of taking a last-minute cruise to the South Pacific are many and varied, but – first and foremost – it’s a relaxing way to get together with your extended family without anyone having to shoulder the stress of feeding the hordes or tackling a Mt Everest of washing up. Here are six of the best last-minute cruises to the South Pacific over the 2015 Christmas period.  

How to Pick a Cruise For the Whole Family

Everyone knows that cruising is a family-friendly holiday but cruise ships are an increasingly popular option for multi-generational groups (30 per cent of P&O Cruises’ passengers are families). That’s because the best cruises have something for everyone – whether they’re six or 60. So how do you know if you’ve picked a ship that will suit all the family?

Cruise Ship Wi-Fi: Everything You Need to Know

Yes, yes. We should unplug while on holiday. But many passengers like (or need) to stay connected with the rest of the world while on the high seas. The downside is that cruise-ship internet fees can be brutal (and those precious minutes you’re paying for can be whittled away by the speed of internet via satellite). If you want internet access during a cruise, it’s worth seeking out lines that have adopted a more passenger-friendly internet policy.

Do You Need to Tip on Australian Cruise Ships?

These days, most overseas cruise lines charge passengers a daily compulsory gratuity fee, money that is shared among crew members (room stewards, restaurant staff, housekeeping and other behind-the-scenes crew) to boost their low wages. This fee is on top of your cruise fare – things have changed from the days when you left some cash in an envelope for your room steward for his or her hard work and slipped the maître d’ at the main dining room a few extra dollars for exemplary service every evening (because back in the day, you only dined in one restaurant for the duration of the cruise).

Cruise Dress Code Rules for the Best in Shipboard Style

In glossy holiday brochures advertising cruises, you see men, women and children looking effortlessly chic, all perfect hair and teeth. While the passing fashion parade might not be quite so glam, there are definitely some passengers who take the act of being sartorially splendid very seriously.

Five Reasons to Take Your Family on a Cruise

As cruising becomes more popular, more and more families are taking holidays at sea. In fact, Cruise Lines International Association reports that some 1.5 million kids now are cruising every year. That’s no surprise when you think about what cruising offers for the whole brood – from hair-raising waterslides to bumper cars as well as dedicated zones for everything from pre-schoolers to teens. Still not convinced? Here are five reasons cruises are perfect for families.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Australian Cruising

Australians love cruising. More than a million took to the seas in 2014 – a milestone that’s made Australia the fastest-growing market in the world – and this love affair shows no sign of abating. If you’re new to Australian cruising, here are five reasons you should get onboard.

Cruises You Can Take Without a Passport

Whether you’re exploring the wine-growing region of WA, the coral reef and jade-green jungles of tropical North Queensland or joining inner urbanites for a jaunt to Melbourne, there are a plethora of cruises you can take without your passport. Here are five short’n’sweet itineraries that are guaranteed to give you a different perspective on the island nation of Australia.
