Set for an ex­cit­ing new wave sea­son

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

Wel­come to our new mag­a­zine – with a fresh new look for spring! This is the most ex­cit­ing edi­tion of the year for Cruise Pas­sen­ger – we are shortly to see the start of the new wave sea­son, when ports will again be host­ing a new fleet of ves­sels for the sum­mer.

You can read about our new fleet in our Cruise News sec­tion. Wel­come ad­di­tions in­clude Nor­we­gian Jewel for 15 jour­neys around the South Pa­cific – the start, we sus­pect, of a long as­so­ci­a­tion with Aus­tralia for Nor­we­gian Cruise Lines.

And old faith­fuls such as P&O have had the most amaz­ing facelift. The P&O fleet is now among the coolest and most in­ter­est­ing around, thanks to an in­cred­i­ble amount of work from the line’s de­sign, hos­pi­tal­ity and en­ter­tain­ment teams. Read our re­view of Pa­cific Ex­plorer in our re­view sec­tion.

If our cover pic­ture ex­cites you, then our spe­cial Ad­ven­ture sec­tion at the back of our mag­a­zine will cer­tainly in­spire you to try some­thing dif­fer­ent. Ex­pe­di­tion ships take pas­sen­gers to an­other world, much of which stands on the edge of ex­tinc­tion.

Much work has been done to make the jour­ney to the Antarc­tic more ac­ces­si­ble. What you will see there will be life chang­ing. It’s a must for your per­sonal bucket list.

Fi­nally, closer to home, the ports around our great coun­try have been busily trans­form­ing them­selves as cruise stops. Our spe­cial guide to those in New South Wales high­light the way Aus­tralia is now em­brac­ing cruise hol­i­days.

As al­ways, we give you a free weekly sum­mary of news and the best deals around in our free news­let­ter at cruisep­a­s­sen­ – if you haven’t done so al­ready, sign up.

And don’t for­get to rate your ship and keep in touch on our web­site and Face­book page. Or lis­ten in to our ra­dio show – it, too, is on our web­site.
