Cruises to Australia & New Zealand

Between the South Pacific and Indian Oceans, Australia is extraordinarily diverse in terms of its geography, wildlife, and climate, with deserts, mountains and rainforests (not to mention those beloved Koala bears). Hardly limited to wilderness, however, Australia boasts urban cultural in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as the Great Barrier Reef. Famous as the set of the Lord of the Rings movies, New Zealand has unparalleled natural beauty, as well as adventure sports and outstanding wine.
