Record Ship Numbers as Australia Sails into a Cruisey Summer!!
Australia will welcome an unprecedented number of cruise ships this summer, with more than 40 vessels sailing in local waters - including eight ships making their maiden visits Down Under.
Among the flotilla will be the largest ship to visit Australia - Royal Caribbean's 167,000-tonne Ovation of the Seas - as well as the youngest and most luxurious ship ever to cruise here, the boutique Seabourn Encore, which will arrive in Australia just two weeks after it is officially named in Singapore.
The start of the cruise season on October 1 coincides with the beginning of the local cruise industry’s first ever Cruise Month promotion, which will see cruise lines offering great deals through cruise specialist travel agents.
