These top shortlisted cruises include itineraries departing from a range of Australian ports, sailing to some wonderful destinations in the South Pacific region. They are often to nearby destinations such as New Zealand or the South Pacific islands, meaning the itineraries can be packed with port stops and places to see. Many last somewhere between one and two weeks, a convenient length for most holidaymakers.

Top cruise lines

Australia’s favourite cruise lines come as no surprise - these are the big-ship lines which commit to basing ships in the country’s ports and providing wonderful getaways on the ocean waves. They are also affordable and fun, two important criteria for holidaymakers. Frequent contenders on the top shortlisted page include P&O Cruises, Princess, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity.


We know that everyone has different tastes, and the most popular cruises won’t be every traveller’s cup of tea. However, if you are new to the cruise scene or are just looking for something that’s tried and true, these shortlisted cruises are your best bet. Dive on in!
