River Cruises

Cold days and summer cruises beckon

Sydney is having a cold spell! Max 15deg, min 4deg – and it was pretty close to that when we went for our walk this morning near the Harbour. But the sun is shining. And it is a great time to be planning your next cruise – or your first cruise. There are some fabulous deals around at this time of year – and there are still some great Christmas cruises on offer. Globus for example has just released its 2010/11 European Christmas packages offering combination river cruise and land itineraries. European river cruises operate at this time of year and you can take a Viking cruise and visit Vienna or a Uniworld cruise and travel from Cologne to Nuremburg – a different way to spend Christmas. Antarctica is the dream destination for many too – and now is the time to book! Our weekly newsletter includes heaps of current specials… sign up if you haven’t already, it’s free.
If you see something advertised – or something on the net – do contact me and ask if I can do better – or if it is booked out if I can find out more. Frequently cruises, packages, even hotels, that appear to be booked out on the internet are in fact still available to the industry. You’ll find me at martin@travelchoice.com.au

A morning of travel discounts

Like most travel agents I open my email each morning to a flood of emails from suppliers, clients, advertisers, travel newsletters… and the odd family missive that often gets lost in everything else. And of course the odd bit of spam that creeps through the filter. At the moment travel discounts are Big News… today we can offer you…

  • 10 per cent off Tall Ship Western Mediterranean Cruising with Star Clippers. The voyage departing Lisbon, Portugal on April 21 comes with a discount if you book by 31 August. Star Clippers are luxury megayachts that combine sailing with cruising.
