Cruis­ing to Carnivale

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - THE BUCKET LIST -

IF peo­ple could sail off on the ul­ti­mate cruise of a life­time - where would they go?

Cruise1st’s mark­ing and prod­uct man­ager Gareth Evi­son said the lead­ing cruise ex­pert com­pany had come up with two fan­tas­tic cruises in 2017 that should be at the top of peo­ple’s bucket list.

“These are un­for­get­table trips that take you in style to some of the most amaz­ing lo­ca­tions in the world,” he said.

One of the cruises is to the spec­ta­cle of the leg­endary Carnivale in Rio de Janeiro, with Cruise1st of­fer­ing a cruise­fly-stay pack­age start­ing at $5299 per per­son twin share.

“The hol­i­day in­cludes re­turn flights from Aus­tralia to Buenos Aires in Ar­gentina on Fe­bru­ary 18, 2017, one night of pre-cruise ac­com­mo­da­tion and a 17-night cruise vis­it­ing Ar­gentina, Uruguay and Brazil on Celebrity In­fin­ity,” Mr Evi­son said.

“A high­light in­cludes three nights in Rio de Janeiro so you can see the colour and chaos of the world -fa­mous Carnivale.”

For those seek­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent, Mr Evi­son said Cruise1st was also of­fer­ing a new fly-stay-cruise 17-night pack­age in Fe­bru­ary 2017 to two of the most spec­tac­u­lar places in the world – Antarc­tica and Ar­gentina.

“See spec­tac­u­lar ice­bergs, moun­tain ranges and wildlife with this ex­clu­sive pack­age which in­cludes re­turn flights from Aus­tralia to Buenos Aires, one night of pre-cruise ac­com­mo­da­tion in Buenos Aires and a 17-night cruise aboard Celebrity In­fin­ity to Ar­gentina, Antarc­tica, the Falk­land Is­lands and Uruguay,” he said.

Mr Evi­son said the pack­age was priced from $5499 per per­son twin share, de­part­ing Syd­ney.

There is a spe­cial price of $8699 to do these both back to back.
