Voyage with the Pacific Explorer to Singapore from Sydney
From Sydney to Singapore, this cruise onboard the Pacific Explorer will take you to Gladstone and Cairns, then on to East Timor and the beautiful Indonesian islands of Lombok and Bali - all over 14 nights.
Our advice:
Discovered by western surfers in the 1980s, Lombok is now a popular destination for all kinds of travellers. Less busy than its neighbour, Bali, Lombok is a great spot for hiking, with fantastic volcanic landscapes.

Sailing from Melbourne with the Pacific Jewel
Ring in the New Year with a cruise across the Ditch! The Pacific Jewel will take you from Melbourne to the scenic Fiordland National park, Port Chalmers, Christchurch and Wellington, before heading back to Melbourne, calling to Hobart along the way.
Our advice:
Day 7 takes you to Windy Wellington! I recommend you take a ride on the city's ever popular cable car to enjoy vista views across the city. Head back down to the city on one of the walking tracks, and enjoy lunch or a cup of coffee at one of Wellington's intimate, quirky coffee shops.
