18 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney to Singapore aboard Crystal Symphony.
From Sydney's iconic Opera House and the underwater wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef to the dragons of Komodo and the temples of Bali, explore a world brimming with culture and scenic marvels.
Highlights of this cruise:
The billowing profile of the Opera House greets us on her return to Sydney's glorious, world-class harbor. Ahead lies the arch of the Harbour Bridge. These twin symbols, more than any other, identify one of the Southern Hemisphere's premier cities.
Sydney is an energetic and exciting metropolis whose nightlife, shopping and fine restaurants compare favorably with the finest the world has to offer. Despite its modern advances, Sydney has lovingly cherished its heritage, for this was the birthplace of the Australian nation.
Combine Sydney's boundless attractions with its superb harborside location, and you have that certain magic that few other cities can rival.
Hardy Reef/Hamilton Island
Hardy Reef is considered one of the premier sites for visitors of Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Anchorage here affords tantalizing glimpses of a compelling underwater realm. For those guests who wish to spend the morning exploring the world's largest living structure, or visiting one of the Whitsunday Islands' most spectacular beaches, Crystal Harmony will anchor briefly to dispatch excursions before continuing on to Hamilton Island. Surrounded by idyllic coral-fringed beaches, Hamilton Island provides the perfect backdrop for the ultimate tropical Great Barrier Reef experience. Located off the Queensland coast amid the numerous islets that make up the Whitsundays, Hamilton Island has been described as "the Island that's spoiling Australia." Its location near the Great Barrier Reef has ensured its status as the travel hub of the Whitsundays. Moreover, Hamilton's marina is a vibrant village with boutiques featuring local art and fashion as well as myriad cosmopolitan restaurants and charming cafés.
A popular international holiday destination, Port Douglas boasts a laid-back, yet sophisticated atmosphere. A former fishing village, this tropical paradise offers golfing opportunities, world-class specialty shops and fine dining. Port Douglas is also blessed with extraordinary natural treasures. Majestic rainforests blanket the Great Dividing Range and spill down to the sparkling sapphire waters of the Coral Sea. Accessible from this port of call is the stunning Daintree Rainforest, magnificent Cape Tribulation Beach and the world-renowned Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary.
Darwin, Australia's northernmost city, lies between the sun-bleached Outback and the Arafura Sea on Australia's "Top End," as tropical northern Australia is familiarly called. Cosmopolitan, yet casual, the capital of the Northern Territory has grown from its roguish beginnings into a modern, mellow mini-metropolis. Establishing and maintaining a European frontier outpost on Australia's remote northern shores has never been easy. The early colonists' aim in settling this far-flung area was to pre-empt foreign occupation and create a trading post for the British Empire. However, aside from a short-lived gold rush during the latter-half of the 19th Century, Darwin seems to have had a long string of bad luck. Since its early days, the city has weathered three destructive cyclones, the worst being Cyclone Tracy in 1974, as well as Japanese air raids during World War II. Despite its struggles, Darwin boasts a comfortable tropical climate and some of Australia's most intact cultural and natural highlights. Nearby Litchfield National Park provides an abundance of wildlife, numerous waterfalls and a remarkable backdrop for your afternoon explorations of The Territory. For those seeking the source of the Aussie lifestyle made famous by "Crocodile Dundee," the beauty of the Adelaide River and its famed jumping crocodiles will be of particular appeal. Darwin is a fascinating blend of culture, history and nature and beckons for your exploration.
Singapore blends the contemporary splendor of a sparkling modern city with influences from throughout the Orient. Its history is one of riches and romance, spice trading and piracy, colonialism and growth. This island state has grown from a small fishing village to one of Asia's greatest success stories. Temples, mosques and churches stand as serene reminders of the varied collection of migrations that have graced its history. Discover the mansions and polo greens of colonial Singapore, the mystique of Chinatown and the heady aroma of spices and curry along Arab Street. You will quickly come to understand why Singapore is acclaimed as the "Crossroads of the East."
