Carnival Cruise Line Australia announced its extensive 2023-2024 program, with a total of 115 voyages to choose from.
All sailings depart from Brisbane QLD and Sydney NSW aboard Carnival Spirit and Carnival Splendor, with the company projecting the cruises to inject US$300+ million into the local economy.
Fares reach as low as a couple of hundred dollars for 3-day weekend samplers.
A highlight is 2 journeys to Papua New Guinea (PNG), with ports of call including the Conflict Islands, Alotau, and Kitava Island (Trobriand).
Guests can expect US$382 per person for a 3-day weekend sampler on October 5, 2023, US$814 per person for an 8-day voyage from Sydney to the South Pacific on April 28, 2024, and US$1219 per person for an 11-day Brisbane to Fiji cruise on February 18, 2024.
Kara Glamore, Vice President of Carnival Australia said that after an incredibly challenging 2 years for the Australian travel industry, it had been extremely important for them to invest in the local economy with their 2023-2024 program.
“Carnival ships have called Australia home for nearly a decade and during that time, we have welcomed over one million guests onboard. That’s why for the first time 60% of our cruises will be across ANZ, with the remaining 40% visiting the South Pacific.
“We know Aussies are hungry to keep exploring their backyard and with over one hundred sailings between June 2023 and June 2024, we’ll be sure to have a cruise for you.”
