Business Class flights and complimentary bonuses feature in a new indulgent cruise package that will see the luxurious ‘superyacht’, Star Breeze, take pampered passengers on an immersive journey around New Zealand and Tasmania in 2023.
Available through Australia’s premier, small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller, the live-it-up, 16-night ‘Tasmania and Tasman Sea Temptations’ package begins on January 9, 2023, with an international Business Class flight from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide or Brisbane to Auckland for a one-night stay.
The next day, guests will board Windstar Cruises’ boutique, 312-guest ship, Star Breeze for an in-depth 15-night cruise to Melbourne taking in some of the most beautiful destinations on NZ’s North and South islands including the geyser gateway of Tauranga, the fiords of Picton, coffee-flavoured Wellington, the garden city of Christchurch, Scottish-laced Dunedin, wild Stewart Island and the spectacular wilderness of Fiordland.
The voyage then heads to Tasmania for visits to historic Hobart, the pristine beaches and mountains of Freycinet National Park and Burnie near iconic Cradle Mountain. The koalas, seals and penguins of Phillip Island in Victoria also feature in the itinerary before Star Breeze arrives at journey’s end in Melbourne. The package includes a Business Class flight from Melbourne back to Sydney, Brisbane or Adelaide, ending the holiday on a high note. Connections can be arranged from other Australian cities.
Large enough to pamper and entertain guests in style, yet small enough to tuck into secluded ports larger vessels cannot reach, Star Breeze has recently undergone a complete transformation as part of Windstar’s US$250 Million ‘Star Plus Initiative’. With new environmentally friendly and efficient engines, new public areas including two new innovative dining venues providing world class cuisine, a re-imagined spa sanctuary and fitness area and an enlarged infinity pool, guests will sail in style aboard Windstar. Add in a new category of Star Suites with a new layout as well as all new bathrooms in every suite, and Star Breeze boasting ocean-views and over 25 square metres of comfort, is perfectly sized to showcase the wonders and scenic vistas of this adventure around New Zealand and Tasmania.
Fares for the 16-night package are available from A$11,395 per person, twin-share, from Sydney, Brisbane or Adelaide and from A$10,695 per person, twin-share, from Melbourne. Bookings made by July 31, 2021, will receive an onboard spending credit of US$100 per person as well as free laundry during the voyage.
