The Big Four – adventure: cruises in Australasia

The Big Four – adventure: cruises in Australasia

What do you expect from cruise around Australasia? The continent offers everything from the paradise islands in the Pacific sea to Australia’s metropolises and the rugged terrain of its Kimberley Coast. We’ve gone and split our Australasia cruises below based on tours that will allow guests to do some fine underwater activities – one while little further afield.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Expedition & Adventure guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Four feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s cruises to Australasia.
