Carnival Cruise Lines has announced its latest Australian ship Carnival Legend will sail the warm waters of the Pacific to Hawaii next year, while Carnival Spirit will make the cruise line’s first ever visit to Asia on an exotic voyage from Sydney to Singapore.
The inaugural fly-cruise itineraries will give Australians an exciting new way to visit two popular holiday destinations, while enjoying all the fun of a Carnival cruise on the way.
Fares start from $1049* per person quad share for Carnival Spirit’s 15-day Sydney to Singapore cruise departing August 1, 2015 and including visits to Lombok and Bali in Indonesia and Brisbane, the Whitsundays and Darwin. Meanwhile, holidaymakers keen to fly to Singapore and sail home can choose the ship’s 15-day cruise from Singapore to Sydney, departing August 30, 2015 and also priced from $1049* per person quad share.
The new cruises will give Queenslanders their first chance to experience Carnival Spirit sailing from Brisbane, with the cruise line offering a 13-day sailing from Brisbane to Singapore on August 3 as well as the return voyage departing Singapore on August 30, with fares from $1049* per person quad share.
Australians will also be able take in all the onboard entertainment and excitement of the cruise line’s latest ship, Carnival Legend, as she sails across the Pacific to Hawaii in April next year. Cruising from Sydney on April 20, the 18-day cruise will visit Fiji and beautiful Bora Bora, Moorea and Papeete in Tahiti before heading to Honolulu. Fares start from $1329* per person quad share.
The cruise line is also offering the chance to enjoy a spring sailing from Honolulu to Sydney via Tahiti and Fiji in September 2015 as Carnival Legend returns to Australia for its second summer season. Fares on the 18-day cruise leaving Hawaii on September 26, 2015 start from $1399* per person quad share.
The Singapore cruises are now open for sale in Polar, with travel agents advised of the new Carnival Spirit itineraries, which will replace existing South Pacific schedules. Carnival Spirit’s visit to Singapore will enable her to undergo a two-week refurbishment and upgrade before her return to Australian waters. The Hawaii cruises will go on sale May 7.
Carnival Cruise Lines Vice President Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said the new cruises would give Australians a great way to travel to Asia and Hawaii.
“We’re excited to be able to offer our guests these longer itineraries which are perfect for travellers looking to visit some wonderful tropical destinations which are a bit further from home, while enjoying all Carnival has to offer onboard,” Ms Vandekreeke said.
As with all cruises on Spirit and Legend departing from Australia, the cruises to and from Singapore and Honolulu will operate in Australian dollars and feature entertainment and food designed for Australian tastes, with no tipping required.
Both Carnival Legend and Carnival Spirit offer 12 decks packed with plenty of activities as well as relaxation options, including four restaurants, 16 bars and lounges, two theatres, a spa and gym and the wonderful Serenity child-free retreat.
