18 Night cruise departing from Sydney to Singapore onboard Azamara Journey.
Starting in sunny Sydney, cross a few B’s off your bucket-list—like the Barrier Reef (the Great one, that is) and Bali. Stroll and sample food and drinks along the beachfront on the Sunshine Coast at Mooloolaba. Discover the azure waters and coral reefs of Hamilton Island and Whitehaven Beach. We stay overnight in Cairns, so opt for a swim-and-snorkel day on the Great Barrier Reef or ride a historic railway through rainforests and waterfalls.
After a restful sea day, meet indigenous Torres Strait Islanders and learn the riveting World War II history of Thursday Island. Put on your explorer’s hat for the frontier capital of Darwin, the perfect place for an overnight stay. Explore some of the world’s oldest rainforests and rock art, visit a crocodile park, and learn about authentic Bush culture.
We arrive to Indonesia, a place that is world apart with its ancient Hindu traditions and shimmering green landscapes. In Benoa we stay overnight, so indulge in one (or two) of Bali’s renowned spa treatments. And the beaches? They can’t be beat. From happening hot spots, to remote stretches of striking black sand, these moments will stay with you long after you return home. Take some time over the next two days to reflect on your immersive journey before concluding in spectacular Singapore.
Highlights of this cruise:
Sunny skies, friendly faces, and beautiful beaches await in Sydney. When you arrive, visit the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Sydney Opera House for a legendary photo opportunity. Then head to Manly Beach for awesome fun in the sun or the Australian Museum for a tour through New South Wales history. Cap your day with a visit to Darling Harbor for dinner with a stunning view of Harbor Bridge.
Mooloolaba is a former sleepy surf town that was recently featured on the popular reality TV series The Amazing Race. At Mooloolaba Beach, you can take to the water for a cruise on the canals, snorkel in the sea, or dive with sharks. Head inland to swim in one of the secluded waterfalls, and take in the tranquility that surrounds you.
Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Australia
We know a place where no cars go—Hamilton Island. Perfectly placed on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef among the 74 Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island has immaculate beaches and coral reefs unlike any other. Charter a boat and go island hopping, or swim, snorkel, scuba dive, or kayak your own pace. Enjoy a fine glass of Australian wine, a meal of fresh seafood, and watch the spectacular sunset.
Any city home to more than one UNESCO World Heritage Site is well worth exploring. Adventure out to the underwater wonder of the Great Barrier Reef, or explore the world's oldest tropical rainforest. Not up for a big excursion? The city's laid-back atmosphere is perfect for a day of relaxation.
Thursday Island, Australia
Known as “T.I.” to the locals, we recommend you leave your watch back on the ship and embrace the relaxed, tropical vibe of Thursday Island when you visit. Head to sites like the Green Hill Fort, the Gab Titui Cultural Centre, and the Japanese Pearl Diver’s Cemetery to discover more about T.I.’s fascinating history.
A multicultural oasis in Australia's vast Northern Territory, Darwin is a fast-growing city rich in natural beauty.

Benoa, Bali, Indonesia
Believe the hype about Bali. Black sand beaches, rejuvenating hot springs, and lush forests create an unforgettable escape in Indonesia. Visit popular places where the rich and famous frequent, or find your own private hideaway off the beaten path. In addition to perfecting the art of relaxation, you'll want to take in unique music and dance styles, and sample some delicious Indonesian cuisine.
Sink your teeth into this foodie’s paradise and be sure to try to unofficial dish of the city, chili crab. If eating can be considered the national pastime in Singapore, shopping makes a decent case as the second most popular activity.
