A Limited Time Special – Moreton Island Cruise February 2015

Moreton Island 2010 Shoot

It is a truth that a large portion of our travellers are from the Shoalhaven Region, and for them, with fantastic beaches at almost every turn the question beckons .. why would I want to go on a cruise to a Tropical Island known for its beaches?

To that I say, that it is not about the destination but the voyage. Moreton Island is fantastic, its bush, beaches and activities are the sort of thing every Australian loves, but for someone from the South Coast its not exceptional. The voyage there and back though is, as we spend 5 days and 4 nights aboard the Pacific Jewel cruising from Sydney to Sydney. You will have the opportunity to experience what it means to take an Ocean Cruise – on board entertainment, full meal inclusions, the ability to relax in good company, or to avail yourself of one of the many activities.

For those that have never cruised before our departure on the 11th February is the perfect way to get that taste of Ocean Cruising, for those that have cruised it is a perfect way to sit back and enjoy an extended weekend in some fantastic company.

If you have been considering it then here is some great news, P&O have released some last minute specials – instant book and purchase – for those that may still be interested in sailing. Cabins are limited and subject to availability but you could join us for as little as AU$698 for an inside cabin , AU$758 for an outside Cabin or AU$1158 for a balcony (please note these are lead in prices and based on two travellers per cabin).

So if you want a taste of cruising, the chance to take a loved one away for Valentines Day, or are just interested in a short break in good company .. then call us today!
