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.
