With a 3D cinema, spa treatments, RADA workshops and golf simulators, there is truly something for everyone on board.

You' ll stop at a variety of ports, beginning with Port Elizabeth, famous for its Art Nouveau architecture. Known as ‘The Friendly City' , this bustling metropolis has nature parks and a heritage trail that reveals charming Victorian landmarks.

Enjoy stunning island scenery in Réunion: with its emerald forests and waterfalls, you' ll want to keep your camera fully charged. In Mauritius you' ll find clear waters and white beaches, along with beach side restaurants serving fish caught fresh that morning. You' ll then cross the Indian Ocean, spending a few days at sea: ample time to further explore the ship' s spectacular facilities.

Spend time discovering Fremantle' s history with visits to the city' s convict-built, colonial-era structures. Why not visit the Round House, the oldest remaining intact building in Western Australia? You' ll cruise next to Busselton, gateway to Margaret River' s premium wine region. This destination also has a charming timber jetty, the longest in the southern hemisphere. Venture further afield to Mammoth Cave, where jagged stalactites descend from the ceiling in this natural time capsule, where you' ll find ancient fossilized remains embedded in the limestone walls.

Sample the gastronomic delights in easy-going Adelaide, before you reach Melbourne' s cosmopolitan charms. Then it' s on to the aptly-named Kangaroo Island, containing several nature reserves abundant with wildlife – and fantastic scenery – before you disembark in Sydney.
