Summary

The Pacific Aria, like her sister ship the Pacific Dawn, currently offers year round cruises from Brisbane.  Give her a try with one of her taster cruises – three night cruises sail into the Pacific from Brisbane and then circle back, while four night cruises give you the opportunity to visit the Great Barrier Reef with stops in either Airlie Beach or Hamilton Island.  If you’re looking to explore more of Queensland’s beautiful coastline, have a look at Pacific Aria’s Australian explorations visiting tropical destinations including Cairns, Willis Island and Townsville (with a couple of itineraries that head south to Sydney and back) over the course of five to nine nights.

For more tropical beach destinations, Pacific Aria’s South Pacific itineraries operate throughout the year (including the winter months for those wanting to thaw on a beach break) and visit Vanuatu, New Caledonia and in some instances Fiji.  For South Pacific itineraries that are a little bit different, have a look at the variety of feature cruises including itineraries to Tonga.

In 2020 Pacific Aria is migrating south!  In February and March 2020, she will cruise from Melbourne with a series of short taster cruises or longer Australian explorations.  From there she will move on to Adelaide to offer the same for cruisers in South Australia.
