If you only have a few days off from work or you’re stuck for things to do during the school holidays, there’s no need to worry – you can still enjoy a sun-filled, fun-filled cruise holiday. Forget about staying at home – whether you’re looking for a three-day getaway or a week-long adventure, you’ve come to the right place to browse because Cruise1st offers the best cruise deals. Here, you will find all our top deals for short cruises, so finding a dream cruise for you and your family is even easier and more convenient!

More and more short cruises are departing from most ports around Australia, like Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. If you’re already on holiday in one of Australia’s major cities, then why not make your holiday even more special by spending a few days at sea? When you’re on a cruise ship – with all amenities and facilities in one place, it’s an easy way to unwind and get away from it all. You have a range of options! You can sail off to another Australian port or enjoy a short roundtrip cruise to one of the paradise islands just off our coasts, like Fraser Island.

Short Cruises for Every Type of Traveller

Short Cruises Highlights

A weekend getaway is just what the doctor ordered if you’re fancying a little bit of rest and relaxation. Do something extraordinary and spend your weekend on board a cruise ship. Spend time lounging on the sun deck whilst taking in the warm rays and cramming in as much fun and adventure possible into your journey. 

Top Short Cruise Destinations

Looking for a good laugh? How about a two-night comedy cruise? Are you off to the races? A Melbourne Cup cruise would be just what you’re looking for! Head to Tasmania and enjoy some of Tassie's finer produce in wine and food. Short cruises are also ideal for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and any special occasion really. Depending on your local port short cruises can also reach Moreton Island and Kangaroo Island.

No matter your budget, interest, or taste, we have a cruise deal for everyone.
