Where to Next?

We've been talking about our next cruise, like we ever stop talking about our next cruise, and would really love to do a cruise to new ports. This most likely means we will need to fly somewhere as we have pretty much seen all of the ports leaving from Sydney or Brisbane. Obviously there are a few left, especially the ones further out which mean a longer (and more expensive) cruise. We definitely wouldn't rule them out, we don't rule any cruise out. We wouldn't mind doing a Queensland coast cruise either or an around Australia or part way round. There's still Tassie and the south island of New Zealand so I guess we still have a few things to tick off our list before heading further afield!

One of the draw cards to cruising is not having to face airports (for the most part) or the added expense of flying somewhere and staying a few nights. We have done a couple of cruises where we did stay overnight in Sydney and one where we stayed two nights but that was our choice and not a necessity really. It's definitely something we need to factor in if we ever do a cruise from overseas. We have been so fortunate to have done so many cruises and it's hard to pass up a bargain when it comes along but maybe we need to so we can do different cruises and see other countries. I wish we could either win lotto or my business would really kick into high gear and start bringing in decent money!

A few cruises that have caught our eye are:
plus a couple of cruises ex Singapore look good, particularly the Sapphire Princess ones. Oh to dream!

Another one that's been added to the watch list:
Edited to add: The Ovation Singapore to Sydney cruise is currently (11/4) $1670pp quad share in a superior balcony (RCI website, Ozcruising was slightly more). Airfares from $239pp. Still approx $2500pp twin.
