THE DEAL: Hawaii Cruise Outlet is offering a 17-night Australia and New Zealand cruise through the South Pacific onboard Celebrity Millennium, sailing from Honolulu to Sydney on November 2, 2013. Prices start from $1,629, per person, for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: From less than $100 per person, per night is a fair price to sail the South Pacific for two and a half weeks with stops in sought-after destinations such as Papeete, Bora Bora, Fiji and New Caledonia. Embarkation in Hawaii and disembarkation in Australia, provides two great opportunities for spectacular cruise vacation extensions. Opportunities for onboard credit practically pay for one night of cruising.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: Airfare. Flights out to Hawaii for boarding, and from Australia back home, are going to add double to your cruise fare. Compare flight prices with our sister site TripAdvisor’s meta-search tool.
