Breath-taking Cruise from Hong Kong to Sydney Sets Sail in October


Sun Princess Cruise Ship

Cruise1st are excited to announce an incredible new fly, stay and cruise deal, departing from Australia to Hong Kong by flight and then working back to Sydney in a spectacular 17-night cruise.

The adventure begins on the 11th October, when guests will take a flight from airports all over Australia to the high-octane city of Hong Kong. After spending one night in this magical city of lights and activity at the Citadines Ashley Hotel, the fun really begins. The luxurious cruise ship The Sun Princess, of Princess Cruises, departs Hong Kong the following day to embark on a fantastic journey full of marvels and mesmerising sights.

The Journey Begins…

First up are the delights of Vietnam. Among other highlights of this beautiful and friendly country are the resort town of Nha Trang and the hustle and bustle of the former national capital, Ho Chi Minh City. The city used to be known as Saigon, but was renamed after the North Vietnamese Communist leader and his mausoleum is just one of the many attractions in the thriving metropolis.

After leaving behind the unique appeal of Vietnam, the cruise will head for Singapore, where guests can satiate their appetites for delicious cuisine and get a healthy dose of retail therapy, as well as enjoying the islands’ rich heritage and culture.

Then it’s on to the northern tip of Australia, to stop by the humid tropical destination of Darwin, where you can set your watches by the thunderstorms and go surfing in an artificial wave pool. After skirting the northern coast of the country, the cruiser will slip down its east coast, stopping at the picturesque Port Douglas, not far north of the vibrant city of Cairns, before coming to rest in Sydney harbour amid the splendour of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

Comfort, Luxury and Adventure at an Affordable Price

No Chance of Boredom upon the Waves

The Sun Princess is not only a luxurious and highly-sought-after 4-star ship, but also offers a variety of options to keep you occupied during the day and the night.

First and foremost, the cuisine in all of the spectacular restaurants is first class. For fitness enthusiasts, there is a jogging track to work off those calories and a sizable swimming pool to cool off afterwards. Or if you prefer simply lazing around and taking in a film or two, the pool is also located beside an on-deck cinema. To keep up your culture intake, you can attend one of the many free lectures and art exhibitions on offer onboard the ship. And when the sun dips and you let your hair down with it, you can visit the adults-only area, The Sanctuary, to while away the wee hours.

Moreover, in addition to all of the amenities and entertainment ideas above, there are also many optional extras you may wish to add on to your package. For example, you can learn more about the cunning and shrewdness of the Vietcong, who evaded American soldiers by digging the Cu Chi tunnels during the Vietnam War. Or you can extend your cruise experience even further by tagging on a journey down the Singapore River.
