Cruising: the best hens party idea yet

Celebrating the end of your single life is a great Australian tradition. Hens parties have evolved over the years to include all kinds of shenanigans, but the aim has remained the same- they serve as a last night out for brides-to-be before they take on their new married life.

A cruise ship is the perfect way to celebrate. All of the most important components of a great hens event are right there- multiple bars and clubs, extensive buffets, spa treatments, pools with loungers, fine dining, dance classes, rowdy quizzes, and theatre shows. What's more, they are all within walking distance of each other and there is no driving required, therefore no sober drivers. A complete lack of dishes, cooking and transport worries means that your girly weekend on the waves will entail nothing but fun, relaxation and togetherness.

Short cruises are the best option for a bachelorette cruise, as the whole tribe is more likely to be able to fit one into their schedules. This may mean a quick out-and-back with no port stops (the ship is the destination!), but there are options for quickie cruises which call in to Hobart, the Whitsundays and Moreton Island. Here are a few examples of the best:

Of course, if you and your girls can spare a week or more then you can head out into the South Pacific, across to New Zealand or as far as southeast Asia. The possibilities are endless, and no matter which line, ship or itinerary you choose, you will sail away from single life with a great send-off. Contact the team at Cruise Sale Finder to start planning the best hens night yet! Sam Corlett-Wood, the Niche Products and Groups Manager, can help you with navigating a group booking.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
