8 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney roundtrip aboard Explorer of the Seas.
There's never been a cruise ship like this. Enjoy one-of-a-kind features like an ice-skating rink, the Royal Promenade and a rock-climbing wall. There was only one way to accommodate all of these innovative ideas. By building a bigger cruise ship. The 138,000-ton, 3,114-guest Explorer of the Seas offers more space for every guest - plus enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and exceptional recreational facilities. This cruise ship is so high-tech, it even features the University of Miami Ocean Lab, a state-of-the-art oceanographic and atmospheric science lab.
Highlights of this cruise:
What's not to love about Sydney? Home to some of the friendliest people, countless museums, galleries, world-class restaurants and of course, the sprawling Outback, Sydney is a true adventure wonderland that no one can resist.
Brisbane is the capital and most populated city in the state of Queensland, Australia. It is situated at a bend of the Brisbane River, approximately 23 kms from its mouth at Moreton Bay. The city itself is very hilly; the CBD is only 2.2km and is easy to walk on foot.
Popular tourist and recreation areas in Brisbane include the South Bank Parklands, Roma Street Parkland, the City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane Forest Park and Portside Wharf. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary opened in 1927 and was the world's first koala sanctuary.
Other attractions in Brisbane include galleries, wildlife parks, museums, markets and adventures. Visitors can relax at beautiful beaches and explore the river, bay, parklands, forests and mountains. There are festivals and events galore too.
Airlie Beach (or Airlie) is a town in Queensland, Australia and is the closest port from which to access the Whitsunday islands on the Great Barrier Reef. It is a popular tourist destination, especially with backpackers. Nearby Shute Harbour is the departure point for the island ferries and Abel Point Marina is home to many of the cruising yachts.
The beach at Airlie is small and the sea is inhabited by marine stingers, the box jellyfish (Chironex fleckeri) from November to May. However the Airlie Beach Lagoon provides a manmade swimming area surrounded by sand and grassy knolls.
