#expeditioncruising

Cruiseco, the leading provider of worldwide cruising options in Australia and New Zealand, is pleased to offer a new '50% single supplement' promotion for the first 10 single cabins booked aboard L'Austral. The cruise provides guests with the opportunity to venture around Australia, experiencing the country like never before.  Departing Sydney Harbour on 25th January 2018, this 40-night circumnavigation of Australia visits over 20 ports along the rugged coastline.

Aboard Ponant's luxurious vessel, L'Austral, guests can expect to explore a combination of Australia's many top tourist spots, plus some of the nation's more secluded and less visited ports.  The voyage will enable guests to check off their Australian bucket list, enjoying mesmerising landscapes, delicious locally produced food and wine and tours of the local region.  

Laura Clarke, Manager Special Projects & Group Sales, Cruiseco said,

"Cruiseco and Ponant exclusively designed this itinerary to showcase the key highlights of our majestic country such as King Island in Tasmania, the 12 Apostles in Victoria, Kangaroo Island in South Australia, Horizontal Falls in Talbot Bay and The Tip, Cape York.  Our luxurious expedition cruise, provides guests with the ability to explore idyllic villages and vibrant cities, relax on pristine white beaches and observe local flora and fauna in their natural habitat.  This unforgettable holiday experience is sure to disappear quickly, so we urge people to secure their place now."

Accompanying guests on their circumnavigation voyage will be a specialist expedition crew, handpicked for their wealth of knowledge and expertise on the local wildlife, greenery and heritage of each port.  Complimentary Zodiac tours allow for exploration of ports such as Esperance, Turquoise Bay, Yirrkala and Lizard Island, plus many more opportunities to discover untouched islands, historic monuments, World Heritage Sites and stunning scenery.

Each tour has been custom designed to captivate the rich history of Australia and as part of the itinerary, guests have the opportunity to further enhance their holiday experience via optional overland excursions.  On conclusion of these additional tours, guests will re-join L'Austral at the next port.

The ship features 123 cabins and suites, majority featuring private balconies, controlled air-conditioning, king bed, mini bar, flat screen TV iPod player, French bath products and plush bathrobes, and complimentary 24-hour room service.
