Carnival goes Aussie and Kiwi cruising 2021

November 25, 2020 Cruise News No Comments

Carnival Cruise Line in Australia has announced that in response to overwhelming demand for closer-to-home itineraries it will be converting a third of its international cruises to domestic itineraries, so that guests can explore Australia and New Zealand by sea, with these cruises providing a $16.7 million boost to the Queensland economy, with nine cruises visiting the Great Barrier Reef and surrounding areas as well as Moreton Island.  With international travel off the books for now, Carnival says that their cruises will offer Aussies more opportunities to see their backyard by sea and further support local tourism, with Carnival making 30 new incremental calls into Queensland, creating the perfect opportunity to explore all the beauty and grandeur of our own backyard.

They added that Cairns, Port Douglas, Airlie Beach and Moreton Island are a few of the destinations that will be included within the new itineraries and guests will have the opportunity to dive into the turquoise waters of the largest coral reef system in the world, as well as discover the tropical rainforests and exotic wildlife that make Northern Queensland famous.

Jennifer Vandekreeke, VP and GM Australia, Carnival Cruise Line, said, “As Australians, we have become increasingly appreciative of our beautiful home and we are looking to explore our backyard more than ever.” “We are so incredibly lucky to have this beautiful part of the world as our playground and there’s no better way to explore the beauty of Australia than by sea”.

“Cruising offers travellers the chance to visit a number of fantastic destinations in one holiday while only unpacking once”. “You can slide your way to the Great

Barrier reef and enjoy a cocktail en-route to Airlie Beach, without any hassles of cooking and cleaning”.

“It’s also never been a more important time to support our local economy, so we’re extremely pleased to offer even more cruises across Australia next year.”

Carnival Cruise Line claims to be the World’s Most Popular Cruise Line® with Carnival Splendor [pictured] and Carnival Spirit both scheduled to return to Australia when cruise operations resume from their scheduled home ports of Sydney and Brisbane, respectively saying both ships are designed with fun in mind and featuring over 45 activities to enjoy each day, Carnival offers families and couples fun, memorable holidays at great value.

Carnival added that the health and safety of Carnival’s guests is the utmost priority and as such, the actual cruise offerings may vary from the descriptions and images displayed, while Carnival assesses the enhancements of its onboard health and safety protocols in light of COVID-19.
