Why should you book short cruises leaving from Melbourne to South Pacific? Short cruises leaving from Melbourne to South Pacific are generally longer than shorter tours, particularly those that depart from Brisbane. The longer the cruise, the more places you can visit and explore.

Cruises departing from Melbourne to South Pacific generally travel further east through the Pacific Ocean. However, this is not always the case. Some cruise lines now routinely serve destinations Noumea, Fiji, Vanuatu and Kiribati in the South Pacific, and the island groups of Tahiti, Vanuatu, and Tonga. Furthermore, some smaller cruise ship companies now occasionally operate on some of these same islands. If this interests you, then it might be worthwhile considering a short trip to one or more of these destinations.

Another reason for taking a cruise vacation from Melbourne to the South Pacific is the option to enjoy luxurious accommodation aboard the ship. On shorter cruises departing from Melbourne to the South Pacific, you can expect to stay in high quality suites featuring excellent views of the sea. These suites are generally located a bit further away from the deck where the guests are dining. Higher priced suites have additional features like private decks and larger living areas. These options are typically only available to VIP guests. If you have a family with small children, you may wish to choose a different cruise ship with more family friendly accommodations.

Many cruise packages depart from Melbourne with special pre-planned activities. These include shows, game shows, and dance classes. These activities are usually designed to please adults. However, children frequently enjoy themed activities as well. You can often find discounted rates on cruises leaving from Melbourne if you plan to bring your children with you on the cruise. If you do not have children, you will likely find more affordable cruise deals departing from Australia.

Cruises departing from Melbourne also serve as an excellent way to see some of the lesser known parts of Australia. For example, you may want to visit the state of Queensland, which is filled with stunning mountains and natural beauty. A flight from Melbourne to Brisbane and a short boat ride to the Great Barrier Reef offer travelers the opportunity to see a number of Australia's natural splendor that they are sure to be envious of. While many cruises leave from Australia, there are others which depart from Holland America Cruises as well as other major cruise lines that have ships in various parts of the Australian continent.

Cruises departing from Melbourne are some of the most popular cruises in the world. Princess Cruises, the largest of all the Princess Cruises ships, departs from Melbourne. The ship takes visitors to a variety of destinations around the Australian coast as well as on some of the remote islands in the Pacific. This is a trip you will always remember and cherish.
