Best Easter 2016 Cruises

19-night cruise around Australia and Asia

Set sail from Sydney, Australia onboard the Diamond Princess on this incredible cruise and visit amazing ports of call you’ve always wanted to go to. Take a leisurely stroll around the Royal Botanic Gardens of Melbourne, indulge in a wine tasting tour in Adelaide and shop for original artwork in Fremantle, Perth before spending a few well-earned days relaxing and enjoying everything the ship has to offer whilst at sea. The next port of call is Benoa, Bali where you can try your hand at all kinds of water sports in Bali Wake Part, followed by Bangkok where you can explore ancient temples, Ho Chi Minh City with countless cultural and city tours and finally Singapore, which has more state-of-the-art architecture and shopping malls than you’ll ever believe.

15-night cruise around Asia

If you like the idea of cruising around Asia but can’t commit to something as long as a 19-night cruise, this Treasures of Asia cruise might just fit the bill perfectly. Departing from Adelaide on Easter Sunday, this ship stops at Fremantle, Benoa, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore, giving you plenty of opportunities to see exotic sites and soak up the tropical surroundings. The cruise takes place on the same boat – the Diamond Princess – as the previous cruise and it’s even a little cheaper, making it the better choice for travellers with a limited budget.

4-night cruise around Australia and Tasmania

If you’re brand new to cruising, a four-night sampler cruise around Tasmania might be more your speed. This cruise sets sail from Sydney onboard the Explorer of the Seas and only has one port of call – Hobart, Tasmania. With stunning natural scenery, wildlife sanctuaries, nature reserves, botanical gardens and waterfalls, this port of call really is a nature lover’s dream. The Explorer of the Seas is a recently enhanced liner with all kinds of amazing add-ons, including the FlowRider surf simulator, an outdoor cinema screen and Broadway-style musicals – plenty for you to get your teeth into during your mini break. However, this cruise departs just before Easter, so if you’ll need to act fast if you want to be sure of getting a cabin.
