One of the best things about cruising is visiting many destinations in one trip. This 21-day Australia and Asia voyage on Azamara Club Cruises‘ Azamara Journey departs 7 March 2018 from Sydney to Singapore. Calls include Brisbane, Hardy Reef, Darwin, Benoa Harbour and Celukan Bawang. From £3,467pp*, cruise only.
Small enough that you won’t feel lost, while still large enough that you won’t run out of things to do or new people to meet, Azamara Journey provides a genial, club-like atmosphere with friendly staff, crew and passengers.
Sailing to smaller ports larger ships cannot access, the ship provides a unique blend of longer stays, with more overnight port visits and tours, ideally suited to couples and mature travellers looking to fully explore each port of call without sacrificing onboard facilities.
Your time in Sydney can be spent exploring the sites around the Harbour and Circular Quay, the gateway by ferry to many of the attractions including Taronga Zoo and the harbourside suburbs. Around this area you will find the Customs House and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The Rocks, the site where the 11 ships of the first fleet anchored in 1788, lies right behind the cruise terminal.
Darwin is an attractive blend of the few surviving colonial buildings and reconstructions. Interesting sites are Government House (1883), Fannie Bay Gaol (a museum), Old Admiralty House, the Victoria Hotel, the Chinese Temple, and the Civic Centre with its “Tree of Knowledge” banyan tree.
Singapore is one of the world’s largest ports and one of Asia’s great crossroads, linking the Indian Ocean to the west with the South China Sea on the east. The allure of this modern, clean city combined with the melting pot of cultures, myriad of sights and excellent shopping make it one of Asia’s most popular destinations. Make sure you visit the Jurong Bird Park and Sentosa Island.
