Casual, Fun & Family Friendly
Carnival Cruises is the largest Cruise Line in the world with a fleet of 24 ships. Carrying over 4 million guests each year Carnival Australia is expanding their reach in Australian waters with it's newest ship "Spendor" set to arrive in Australia in 2019. Until then we have Carnival Spirit and Legend offering an abundance of Cruises from Sydney and around Australia to wet your appetite.
With so many cruise itineraries available, choosing the best deal can sometimes be clouded by price. We suggest taking all factors into account to ensure you're not just basing your decision on price alone. Think about your ultimate goal, the schedule, the places you wish to visit, and the type of ship you'd like to travel upon. You don't want to be doing a cruise to New Zealand just based on the price when you really want a cruise from Sydney to Fiji and Vanuatu. In the end the choices are endless, but you want to balance value for money with your ultimate cruising holiday. Search our Cruise Sale finder to find the best deal.
Popular itineraries include the Melbourne Cup Cruise, Weekend Samplers, Queensland Cruises to Moreton Island and the northern coast, and of course the Pacific Islands and Hawaii.
Sales are on throughout the year with major discounts, and free inclusions. Be sure to check back regularly for specials and discounts and add your email to our mailing list.
