11 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney roundtrip aboard Carnival Splendor.
We're excited to announce that Carnival's free-spirited, family-friendly and fun cruises, will be welcoming a new ship to the Australian family in 2019 with Carnival Splendor repositioning Down Under. She will be the newest and largest ship home-ported year-round in Australia. With a capacity of 3,900 guests, Carnival Splendor will sail through the heads for the first time in December 2019, and sail year-round from then on.
Before her arrival, Carnival Splendor will receive a significant top to tail upgrade before she sails into her new home, including a range of new dining experiences tailored to local Australian tastes and a brand-new waterpark. The upgrade will see her receive some of the features Australian passengers have come to love the most on our Carnival ships.
Highlights of this cruise:
Sydney is located on the south-east coast of Australia. It is the largest and most populated city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. The city is built on hills surrounding Sydney Harbour where the Sydney Harbour bridge and the Sydney Opera House are located. The region features many bays, rivers, inlets and beaches including the famous Bondi Beach. Within the city are many picturesque parks including Hyde Park and the Royal Botanical Gardens.
The most well-known attractions include the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Other attractions include Royal Botanical Gardens, Luna Park, some 40 beaches and Sydney Tower. The Rocks precinct includes the first colonial village of Sydney and some great shops, cafes and galleries are located here. Sydney also has several popular museums, such as the Australian Museum (natural history and anthropology), the Powerhouse Museum (science, technology and design), the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Australian National Maritime Museum.
Isle of Pines, New Caledonia
Also known as the ‘Jewel of the Pacific’. Ooh, sounds pretty. Sounds sparkly. Sounds pretty spot on. With its white talcum-like sands and crystal blue waters, you’ll totally see why the Isle of Pines earned this title. It really is a unique little gem.
The name Isle of Pines on the other hand obviously comes from the narrow pine trees planted all over the island. While the trees aren’t exactly built for climbing you can certainly catch some shade under their branches. And do you wanna hear something really cool? The island was actually named by Captain Cook yonks ago when he was sailing by one day. Interesting stuff.
And that’s the Isle of Pines in a nutshell. A beautiful, shiny, one-of-a-kind type of nutshell.
It may be oceans away, but the welcome will make you feel right at home. From the moment you arrive you’re greeted with a big ol’ smile. And to make you feel extra special, the locals set up their markets at the port just for you. So get your pirate persona out and hunt for some treasures me hearties.
And the cheer continues as you venture further into the city. Even though Port Vila is Vanuatu’s busiest harbour, the people are famed for their ‘good mornings!’ And of course there’s the hearty traditional food to warm your belly. You’ll even find some (not so traditional) Aussie meat pies.
Yep, the people of Port Vila go to great lengths to make you feel right at home. It kinda feels like a big Vanuatu group hug.
Can you smell that? Smells like fun. Smells like adventure. Smells like… your cup of tea. Go on, take a deep breath. Breathe in that aroma. Kinda smells like coconuts too. That’s because Santo’s quayside is lined with sheds packed with coconut kernels all ready to be made into oil. How tropical.
Surrounded by all that coconutty goodness, it’s hard to believe that Santo was used as a military base during WWII. Yep. It is even home to the famous ‘President Coolidge’ shipwreck that sank after hitting a mine during the war. Makes for an awesome scuba diving site. But if swimming amongst shipwrecks isn’t your bag, there’s plenty of tropical fishies to look at too.
See, we told you Santo was your cup of tea. That is if you like your tea with a side order of fun.
Mare, New Caledonia
Mare is the Pacific Islands at their best; think water so crystal clear blue it looks fake, so full of fish and turtles you'll want to snorkel forever, think untouched beauty, think a tropical paradise, think aaaahh, now I'm truly on holiday!
Divided into eight districts, Maré offers something for everyone. Jagged basalt rocks are evidence of the island’s first volcanic activity, dark forests stretch to the cliffs’ edges and its central plane is scattered with grottos and natural pools where fish and turtles abound. Though shopping and dining options are scarce, Maré encapsulates what it truly means to get away from the every day and relax while experiencing something new and inspiring. Its beaches are postcard worthy; its waters are always warm; and its views are unforgettable.
Noumea, New Caledonia
Nouméa is the capital city of the French territory of New Caledonia. It is situated on a peninsula in the south of New Caledonia's main island, Grande Terre. It is one of the most westernized cities in the Pacific islands, and while the city itself is not attractive, there are some beautiful beaches on its outskirts.
Attractions in Nouméa include a stroll along the Place des Cocotiers, the local produce market and the Tjibaou Cultural Centre, located 20mins from the city. The focal point of the city is Coconut Park with its attractive colonial houses and beautiful hibiscus and bougainvilleas. The marina is worth a visit and there are attractive beaches at Anse Vata, Baie des Citrons and at Pointe Magnin.
