Even more from Cruise Pas­sen­ger

Cruise Passenger - - PUBLISHER’S LETTER - Peter Lynch Pub­lisher, Cruise Pas­sen­ger

Wel­come to our Au­tumn edi­tion. As the cruise in­dus­try cel­e­brates the end of another suc­cess­ful Aus­tralian wave sea­son, Cruise Pas­sen­ger has been busy creat­ing new prod­ucts to help you choose from the truly as­ton­ish­ing range of cruise styles and desti­na­tions.

Our new dig­i­tal cruise guide – the­cruiseguide.com.au – has been de­signed to give you as much in­for­ma­tion as pos­si­ble so you can com­pare what’s on of­fer. It’s for new-to-cruise and sea­soned trav­ellers. Take a look and let us know what you think.

And we’ve an­swered the call for a site and newsletter cov­er­ing the bur­geon­ing river cruise mar­ket, which has seen enor­mous in­no­va­tions. River ships can now be found in Africa and In­dia, as well as up­graded ves­sels in China, Asia and South Amer­ica. Firm favourite Europe has seen new lines, in­clud­ing U by Uni­world, aimed at mil­len­ni­als – the fresh­est take on this style of jour­ney in many years.

Go to our new site, river­cruisep­a­s­sen­ger.com.au and sign up for our newsletter. You’ll be sur­prised!

You can read about rivers’ new prod­ucts in our spe­cial re­port start­ing on page 47.

We also look at the great range of desti­na­tions that are just com­ing out of win­ter. With low airfares and a strong dol­lar, it’s a good time to con­sider the Med, Caribbean or Asia. Our round-up will en­sure you can carry on cruis­ing what­ever the weather at home – see page 24.

At the end of the year, we’ll see an amaz­ing ar­ray of new ships in Aus­tralia. Our lux­ury ßeet is swelling, with Re­gent Seven Seas, Vik­ing, Po­nant, Ocea­nia, Aza­mara and more sail­ing our wa­ters for longer. Ma­jes­tic Princess will be the star of the Syd­ney sea­son, while Norwegian Jewel’s facelift will make her sec­ond sea­son even more pop­u­lar.

Smooth sail­ing!
