Cruise Away This Mother's Day

Posted May 8th, 2014

Our mother is our hero; known for having the most multifaceted and demanding occupation in the world, she does it all and without a doubt, deserves it all. The provider, the carer, the multi-tasker and the central soul of the household, she asks for nothing, but ensures you’re provided with everything. What better way to show her what she means to you by taking her on a memorable cruise this Mother’s Day? In fact, make that a Mother’s Week or two; an ideal time for both of you to sit back, relax and experience some of the most stunning places on earth. As far as thrilling voyages go, Cruiseabout is here to the rescue; with so many enticing tours this May, we’ve put together three sensational cruises to suit any family!

Tropical Pacific Islands

Departing from Sydney, jump onboard the Carnival Spirit as you witness the very best of the Pacific Islands. From Vanuatu, Mystery Island and New Caledonia, get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and be greeted by friendly, welcoming locals, mouth-watering traditional dishes and stunning scenery. Is your mother a big fan of French and Asian cuisines? Splendid. As you travel through the port of Noumea, you will sense its quirky charm, a direct result of its Melanesian, French and Asian influences. While visiting the post-colonial island, stop by at the local street markets and tuck in to nem; a scrumptious spring roll filled with the freshest local beef. Aside from delivering a smorgasbord of traditional breads, pâtés, wines and cheeses, Noumea is celebrated for its glorious, sun-baked beaches.


Picturesque New Zealand

Sailing from the fashion capital of Melbourne, join Princess Cruises on an unforgettable journey around Wellington, Napier and Tauranga. Your mother will be pampered like a queen aboard the Dawn Princess; featuring an ocean-view spa, heavenly massage treatments and entertaining cabaret shows, she’ll be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a few cocktails! But don’t feel left out. With extravagant lounges and bars, contemporary sport courts like the golf stimulator and two exciting children’s clubs, no one is left bored or wanting more. After a few days of indulging at sea, you’re able to experience the windy city of Wellington. Besides its breezy conditions, Wellington confidently delivers on spectacular scenery, exceptional farm produce and remarkable museums. If you want to see stunning 360 degree views of Wellington, the popular Kelburn Cable Car is a must for enthusiastic vacationers and photographers.

Dashing Food & Wine Cruise

Are you under a tight budget and timeframe but desire to spoil your mother on a divine three night gourmet cruise? Thanks to P & O Australia, you can travel in style as you satisfy your palate, with the finest quality wine and cheeses on offer. Enjoy yourselves with other like-minded vacationers, learning about how cheese is produced and matured, the fine art of cocktail making and the history of the Australian sherry. A cruise that requires a lot of stomach space, The Pacific Jewel also provides luxury duty-free shopping in case you want to grab some last-minute Mother’s Day presents – yes, she is getting spoilt – and a hair and beauty salon to distract and treat your mother while you purchase them!
Do one of these cruises sound like an exciting voyage your whole family will love this Mother’s Day?
