Best New Cruises from Sydney in 2016

P&O continues to expand its rollcall of ports throughout the region. In June 2016, Pacific Jewel will become the first cruise ship to call at Conflict Islands as part of P&O’s Papua New Guinea itineraries. The group of 21 islands surrounds a lagoon that’s home to one of the world’s most biodiverse reef systems. P&O negotiated with eccentric entrepreneur and conservationist Ian Gowrie-Smith to bring ships to his islands – one of the few parcels of freehold-owned land in PNG.

All Aboard 2016 – Best Australian Cruises for New Year’s Eve

It’s the stroke of midnight on the last day of the year. You’re on the top deck of a cruise ship in the middle of the South Pacific with the wind roaring through your hair as the ship’s captain counts down to the New Year. There’s no doubt about it – it’s a romantic notion.


5 Reasons You Should Spend Christmas on a Cruise

Instead of slaving over a hot turkey – or keeping the peace between distant relatives – you could be eating Christmas dinner prepared by a top chef while gazing out to sea. But more than just escaping the hard work and stress that December 25 can bring, taking a cruise at Christmas means you truly get into the spirit of the season. With the ship festooned with wreaths, holly and mistletoe from bow to stern, eggnog handed out poolside and choirs singing carols on the decks, even Ebenezer Scrooge couldn’t help but feel festive. 

Global Voyager: The Best in 2016 World Cruises

For most of history, circling the world by ship was unimaginable. A Spanish expedition finally succeeded in 1522, but its Portuguese leader Ferdinand Magellan was killed in the attempt. Even in the early days of leisure cruising, passengers hopped from one ship to another in Suez or Singapore in order to traverse the globe. But in 1922, Cunard’s Laconia set off on the first-ever round-the-world cruise and a great dream of travel was finally realised. 

Best Australian Cruise Ship Drinks Packages

Buying a beverage package, whether it’s for soft or alcoholic drinks, can save you money and also allow you to know exactly what you’ll spend at the bar. It’s worth working out how many drinks you’re likely to consume to see if you will save money – check if there’s a service charge for the package, too. Here’s a rundown of beverage packages offered on board the major cruise lines that operate in Australia, either year-round (Carnival Cruise Lines, P&O Cruises) or on ships that visit during the summer season (October to April).

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 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.

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.
