More Choices for Australian Cruising

This November, the number and variety of cruise itineraries available for Australia and New Zealand will grow when Royal Caribbean moves the 3,840-passenger Voyager of the Seas to Sydney for a five-month cruise season.
 
The fifth Royal Caribbean ship to home port in Sydney, the Voyager of the Seas is roughly twice the size of any other ship currently based in the region. The larger ship brings some favorite Royal Caribbean amenities– including an on-board ice rink, inline skating track and four-story atrium, the Royal Promenade – to the region for the first time.

The Voyager of the Seas is also equipped with Royal Caribbean’s signature rock climbing wall and a 9-hole mini-golf course. The Adventure Ocean Club for kids includes the Adventure Beach water park, and there’s a dance club and video arcade just for teens.

 Guests will be able to choose from 11 different dining venues that feature everything from gourmet Italian dining to 1950s-inspired fare at Johnny Rockets. To keep everyone entertained, the ship has more than a dozen lounges and clubs, as well as the Coral Theater, an indoor pool, a spa and fitness center, boutiques and art galleries, and the gorgeous Skylight Chapel, a perfect location for a wedding.
 
Voyager of the Seas will sail 12 different itineraries around Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, ranging from eight to 18 nights and departing from Sydney or Fremantle (the port for Perth). For example, an eight-night roundtrip cruise begins with an overnight stay in the wonderful city of Sydney, then sails south to Melbourne and on to the island of Tasmania. A nine-night roundtrip cruise from Sydney ventures into the South Pacific, calling on the islands of New Caledonia and Fiji. And, an 18-night provides a terrific look at the diversity of Australia and New Zealand. The cruise begins in Perth; calls on Adelaide, Melbourne, and Tasmania; sails to New Zealand for port calls in Doubtful Sound, Dusky Sound, Dunedin, Christchurch and Wellington; then returns to the ship’s home port in Sydney.
