Sailing out of Sydney in 2011

The port of Sydney is busy today with cruise liners coming and going (Volendam, Pacific Pearl, Rhapsody of the Seas, Seabourn Sojourn and Arcardia to name a few – and we have been really busy the last few weeks taking inquiries and making bookings on many of these vessels. Sydneysiders it seems love to cruise from their home port…

A new ship in our waters in the not too distant future is the Celebrity Century on her maiden voyage to Sydney arriving on 29th November and then off to Auckland the next day. You can sail into Sydney if you prefer as the ship leaves Honolulu on November 11 and cruises through the South Pacific before she reaches us.

Celebrity Century is rated 4+ by Berlitz. It has a high passenger space ratio and crew to passenger ratio which of course means you never feel crowded and there is always someone there when you want service. It has a jogging deck at the top of the ship – something that appeals to me as I am very keen on my early morning walk – and, the other feature that appeals to me, is the piano lounge with its welcoming armchairs and club-like ambience. The two balance each other out nicely to my mind!

No more from me… take a look at this Youtube video which will give you a tour of the ship – and then if you’d like to know more – including if there are still cabins available – contact me… martin@travelchoice.com.au – or during work hours 02 9968 1600..
