Triple back-to-back cruise combo reaches exotic, bucket-list destinations – complete with free flights
A wonderful, triple-back-to-back grand cruise combination aboard MV Voyager from Singapore to Cape Town has been scheduled for 2017.
It lasts over six weeks (43 nights) and visits bucket-list, hard-to-reach destinations throughout.
This imaginative and exotic itinerary covers nine countries in 43 nights, with overnight stays in Singapore, Yangon, Colombo, Seychelles, Mauritius, South Africa’s Richards Bay and Cape Town.
Cruise Traveller (cruisetraveller.com.au) has obtained a limited number of cabins on the cruise and is making an exclusive offer: free return flights from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth to Singapore to join the ship, and flight back from Cape Town at the end of the cruise.
The 43-night cruise is named ‘Grand Indian Ocean Spices and Wildlife’. Ports of call include the Malaysian holiday island of Langkawi, Yangon (Rangoon) in Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Seychelles, Madagascar and Mauritius.
Apart from the free airfare offer, several other factors make ‘Grand Indian Ocean Spices and Wildlife’ very attractive:
- You’ll have an ocean-view cabin, not an inside cabin.
- The ship, MV Voyager, operated by Voyages of Discovery, is a boutique-size, smaller ship, carrying no more than 540 passengers. That means a less crowded way of cruising and the ability to sail straight into smaller ports, exploring places big ships don’t go.
- Ship’s gratuities are covered, so you can forget about tipping aboard.
- The fare covers all shipboard main meals and all entertainment, as well as onboard talks by guest speakers.
‘Grand Indian Ocean Spices and Wildlife’, 43 nights, costs from A$13,995 per person twin share and is valid at that rate until the end of this year (31 December 2015) or until sold out, whichever occurs first.
The holiday begins on 17 February 2017 with flight from Australia to Singapore.
Those booking it can consider adding a two-night Victoria Falls hotel stay for an extra A$1299 per person twin share. That comes with flights, transfers, half-day tour of the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls and a Zambezi Explorer Sunset cruise.
After sailing from Singapore, ‘Grand Indian Ocean Spices and Wildlife’ calls at Port Klang (Port Kelang) for a day in Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi. Then, a big bonus – MV Voyager anchors in Yangon (Rangoon) and spends two nights there. This give you time to explore a city that has become one of the world’s must-see destinations, a city where accommodation is increasingly expensive and hard to find. The ship solves that problem for you.
Other highlights: Trincomalee and then Colombo in Sri Lanka; Male and Kuda Bandos in the Maldives; the ports of Victoria, Mahe, Praslin and La Cigue in the Seychelles; Port Louis in Mauritius; Pointe des Galets in that delightful enclave of France in the Indian Ocean, Reunion Island. MV Voyager sails on to Fort Dauphine (Tolagnaro) in Madagascar (over 80 percent of Madagascar’s animals and plants are found nowhere else on Earth); Richards Bay, Durban, Port Elizabeth in South Africa and finally to Cape Town.
The Richards Bay overnight stay gives you plenty of time to experience Hluhluwe-Umfolozi game park. If you choose to take a shore excursion here (at additional cost) you’ll have a chance to see the Big Five.
