Cruises in Australia

Not too many countries are fortunate enough to be nestled between as many beautiful oceans as Australia. There is the South Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea to the East and the Indian Ocean to the west. This makes Australia uniquely suited for cruises. We have done some research for you. This does not mean that we endorse any of the cruise companies listed. You need to research these companies yourself but we have shortened your search time. Please note that the information in this page may be time sensitive and it was written in May, 2001. Please double check the available cruise dates.
