More and more Aussies are taking cruises and the most popular cruises are those in our home waters – Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific – then Asia. The big attraction of cruising is the inclusion of accommodation, meals, transport, entertainment and, in many cruises some great extras, all in the one price. And for many getting on and/or off in the home port is another plus – as is only unpacking once. If you fancy cruising – or think you might – we can suggest a cruise that will suit your budget and your time-frame – there are so many to choose from. There are also many different types of cruise ships – so if you would rather travel with people of your own age, on a big ship, or a small exploration vessel, we can find the right one for you.

Queen Victoria, Queen Mary and the Crystal Serenity

Well dear readers, I was hoping to present you with some beautiful photos of the Queen Victoria docked at Sydney’s International Terminal, followed by the Dawn Princess sailing out of our beautiful harbour at night… but I need to brush up my photography skills.
So this week – the Queen Mary 2 will arrive in the Harbour on Thursday (bringing the lovely Biba back into the offices of the Mosman Cruise Centre) and the Crystal Serenity will follow on Saturday. I am thrilled to have been invited to visit both of these luxurious ladies of the sea and hope to do a better job of photography so I can present you with a slide show of them both.
