Seabourn Cruises to the South Pacific
The arid Outback gives way to some of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities as you sail through Australia and New Zealand with Seabourn. The luxury cruise line’s South Pacific trips focus on these two countries, giving passengers far more insight than just trips to the major ports.
The Seabourn Odyssey makes its way along the coasts of both nations. The path presents a trail of natural wonders as you stop in major cities and small villages. Landscapes give way to stunning geysers, fjords, vineyards, and reefs – many within proximity of each other.
Outside of the smaller points, larger cities, like Sydney and Auckland, present a blend of cultures – part European, another distinctly of the Southern Hemisphere. Are you ready to explore all there is to see?
The Seabourn Odyssey falls under the cruise line’s newest class – one that’s slightly larger than previous vessels. Spacious accommodations provide ample room for 450 passengers, with decks, a variety of dining options, and pools creating a new, relaxing sensation.
The Seabourn Odyssey makes two standard types of trips in the South Pacific:
From Indonesia: The ship begins in Singapore before traveling through Indonesia’s vast network of islands. From there, Seabourn coasts by Australia, letting you explore culture and landscapes in Cairns, Townsville, Hamilton Island, and Sydney.
Longer itineraries continue south to Melbourne and then proceed east to New Zealand. Get to know all facets of Kiwi culture through stops in Oban, Timaru, Akaroa, Kaikoura, Picton, Tauranga, Christchurch, and Auckland.
Australia to New Zealand: Seabourn starts with a beautiful sight of the harbor – right by the well-known Sydney Opera House – and then proceeds over to New Zealand, visiting a combination of large and small ports.
Sydney: Perhaps the South Pacific’s best-known city, Sydney features a cosmopolitan, multicultural character. The beach is close by, as are national parks, World Heritage sites, and some of the world’s acclaimed wine regions. And of course, there’s the harbor, on which the Opera House and Bridge sit. Seabourn’s small ship gets closer than most cruise vessels, allowing you to fully take in the scenery.
Christchurch: An urban, cosmopolitan character unfolds in New Zealand’s “Garden City.” Gardens, art galleries, festivals, and shopping districts attract both travelers and locals, and while you’re in port, a strong English influence becomes readily apparent, particularly through 19th century Gothic Revival architecture.
Australia and New Zealand make one of the world’s premier cruise destinations, and Seabourn takes it to a new dimension with its luxurious ships. See the region for yourself by scheduling a trip today through Direct Line Cruises.
