Australian small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller, is offering what must rank as the most beautiful journey ever from Sydney to Adelaide in January, 2022, aboard the world’s largest and newest sailing ship, Golden Horizon.
The 17-night ‘slow travel’ package will take adventurous, modern-day seafarers to 10 destinations between the two capitals that, together, offer, a kaleidoscope of natural beauty, history and wildlife. Many of the destinations in NSW, Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia are small and remote islands and places rarely visited by other vessels.
Cruise Traveller is the exclusive launch partner for new UK-based cruise line, Tradewind Voyages, which will debut the brand new, five-masted Golden Horizon this May and bring her to Australia next summer with her billowing sails, traditional nautical trimmings and gleaming wood and brass. Since the launch of Golden Horizon’s maiden Australian season in November, 2020, Cruise Traveller has received a rush of bookings from Australians captivated by romantic and unique voyages aboard the deluxe, 272-guest ship, which pairs rich sailing heritage and modern luxury with a sustainable twist – sailing without using propulsion, wherever possible.
Cruise Traveller’s exclusive ‘South Australian and Tasmanian Adventure starts on January 5, 2022, with a one-night hotel stay in Sydney where guests will board Golden Horizon the next day for a 16-night voyage to Adelaide via the chalk-white, bush-lined beaches and aquamarine waters of Jervis Bay, Batemans Bay and Eden in NSW, pristine Darlington Bay on Maria Island in Tasmania, the historic convict settlement of Port Arthur and beautiful Hobart. Golden Horizon’s sails will then power her to the rugged coastline, fresh seafood and gourmet produce of King Island in Bass Strait, the cultural capital of Melbourne, wildlife-rich Kangaroo Island and the picture-perfect coastal hamlet of Victor Harbour in SA. The voyage ends in Adelaide.
The 17-night package is available from A$9475 per person, twin-share, including a night in Sydney pre cruise, beer and wine with lunch and dinner aboard the ship, onboard gratuities and use of the ship’s extensive water sports equipment including water skis, pico sailboats, kayaks, windsurfers, stand up paddle boards, snorkelling gear and a floating island and trampoline for fun in the water off the ship’s marina platform.
Graceful, spacious and traditional in style, Golden Horizon is a modern, luxurious and eco-friendly sailing ship offering a relaxed but elegant ambience, fine cuisine restaurant, three pools, gym, library, spa sanctuary, four bars and a marina platform. All 140 cabins will offer ocean vistas. The majestic ship is projected to be under the sole power of wind for 70 per cent of the time, thanks to 6300 square metres of billowing sails.
