Carnival Australia launched its 2018-2019 Program recently, showcasing the greatest volume of cruises ever.

The latest extensive program boasts 70+ sailings from Sydney and Melbourne and the new program represents a 13% increase on 2017-2018. Here are the highlights:

  • The Carnival Legend sails from Sydney on an 8-day cruise to the South Pacific on November 24, 2019 with calls to Mare, Isle of Pines, Lifou and Noumea.
  • Also newsworthy is that an increased demand from the southern states market has placed Melbourne firmly back on the map, with Carnival Australia offering a series of round-trip itineraries from Mebourne to New Zealand over 13 nights, the South Pacific over 10 & 11 nights as well as a four-night cruise south to Tasmania. 
  • On the calendar for May 2018 is the Carnival Spirit's voyage from Sydney to Singapore over 19 nights, with calls to Darwin and Bali and maiden visits to Koh Samui and Phuket in Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. On the way to Singapore, Carnival Spirit will also stay overnight in Ho Chi Minh City.

Both Carnival's Australia-based ships, the Carnival Legend and the Carnival Spirit are set to enter dry-dock for a period in May 2018.

What we can summarize by this news is that Australasia as a region is set to continue it's path of explosive growth spearheaded by Carnival Australia, Melbourne is back on the agenda as a Turnaorund port due to southern demand and the itineraries are now more varied than ever with combinations of both short and long cruises to cater for the source market in the region.
