WELCOME ABOARD

A quick word from BLT`s Cruise Director

Cruising has become the World’s best known secret and it has become incredibly popular with more than a million Australians cruising in 2015.

What I always say is: “You only have to unpack once to see the world go by!”

Relax on deck or spend time in the gym, party into the night and sleep in the next day, pamper yourself with a spa treatment and enjoy the onboard entertainment program, let somebody else take care of the kids whilst cooling off in the child-free pool, sipping a cocktail.  Then during shore visits experience exotic sites and diverse cultures.

The hardest decision to make is which cruise is right for you?  Not every cruise line or ship is suitable for everyone so we have created our Cruise Guide to make the choice easier for you.

If you like the idea of combining great food, entertainment, adventure, action, excitement, relaxation, friendly service and pure pampering, then there is certainly a cruise for you.

In this guide, to help you make the right choice we have showcased and rated the most popular cruise lines and ships to make it even easier for you to see the differences in order to create a cruise holiday that’s just right for you.

So what are the main differences between cruise lines, ships, styles, staterooms and itineraries?

Well in short there truly is something for everyone…Whether you are single, a couple,
a family, young or young at heart, want to travel with a group of friends or have a family reunion, there are perfect cruise options available for all!

With ships taking from as few as 20 to more than 6000 passengers on a global fleet of river and ocean going cargo and supply, scientific survey, exploration and adventure, luxury, premium, popular, large and small ships, each with a myriad of cabin and stateroom types and categories. There are itineraries from as short as 2 day, to more than 100 day “Around the World” journeys – The possibilities are endless!

Personally speaking, I have experienced 36 (and still counting!) different cruises with my family to various places around the world and talking from the heart there truly is no better holiday.

Bon Voyage!
