Short Cruises and Mini Breaks

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.

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.
