Splendor, Great Barrier Reef ex Sydney Return
10 Night Cruise sailing from Sydney roundtrip aboard Carnival Splendor.
We're excited to announce that Carnival's free-spirited, family-friendly and fun cruises, will be welcoming a new ship to the Australian family in 2019 with Carnival Splendor repositioning Down Under. She will be the newest and largest ship home-ported year-round in Australia. With a capacity of 3,900 guests, Carnival Splendor will sail through the heads for the first time in December 2019, and sail year-round from then on.
Before her arrival, Carnival Splendor will receive a significant top to tail upgrade before she sails into her new home, including a range of new dining experiences tailored to local Australian tastes and a brand-new waterpark. The upgrade will see her receive some of the features Australian passengers have come to love the most on our Carnival ships.
Highlights of this cruise:
Sydney is located on the south-east coast of Australia. It is the largest and most populated city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. The city is built on hills surrounding Sydney Harbour where the Sydney Harbour bridge and the Sydney Opera House are located. The region features many bays, rivers, inlets and beaches including the famous Bondi Beach. Within the city are many picturesque parks including Hyde Park and the Royal Botanical Gardens.
The most well-known attractions include the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Other attractions include Royal Botanical Gardens, Luna Park, some 40 beaches and Sydney Tower. The Rocks precinct includes the first colonial village of Sydney and some great shops, cafes and galleries are located here. Sydney also has several popular museums, such as the Australian Museum (natural history and anthropology), the Powerhouse Museum (science, technology and design), the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Australian National Maritime Museum.
Airlie Beach (or Airlie) is a town in Queensland, Australia and is the closest port from which to access the Whitsunday islands on the Great Barrier Reef. It is a popular tourist destination, especially with backpackers. Nearby Shute Harbour is the departure point for the island ferries and Abel Point Marina is home to many of the cruising yachts.
The beach at Airlie is small and the sea is inhabited by marine stingers, the box jellyfish (Chironex fleckeri) from November to May. However the Airlie Beach Lagoon provides a manmade swimming area surrounded by sand and grassy knolls.
Port Douglas is a popular coastal resort town north of Cairns, in far north Queensland, Australia. It is an ideal base from which to visit the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree National Park and nearby Cape Tribulation.
Port Douglas is fringed by the beautiful white sands of Four Mile Beach. The town itself maintains a village feel, where you can meander through the town to do some shopping, or enjoy a wide variety of cafes, pubs, restaurants & bars, ranging from those offering excellent value to world class cuisine.
At the Port Douglas Marina there are numerous companies that run daily trips from the marina to the outer reef and the Low Isles for scuba diving and snorkelling.
