Carnival Cruise Line Australia has announced its extensive 2023/24 cruise program, with 115 sailings to choose from. 

All sailings leave from Sydney and Brisbane aboard Carnival Splendor and Carnival Spirit, with Carnival projecting the sailings to inject more than $300 million into the local economy. 

Whether you want to splash a bit of cash or just a weekend escape, fares reach as low as a couple of hundred dollars for three-day weekend samplers.

Another highlight is two cruises to Papua New Guinea, with ports including Alotau, Kitava and the Conflict Islands.

For a taste of the fares, you can expect $382 for a three-day weekend sampler on October 5, 2023, $814 per person for an eight-day cruise from Sydney to the South Pacific on April 28, 2024 and $1219 per person for an 11-day Brisbane to Fiji sailing on February 18, 2024.

Kara Glamore, Vice President of Carnival Cruise Line Australia said: “After an incredibly challenging two years for the Australian travel industry, it was extremely important for us at Carnival to invest in the local economy with our 2023-2024 program.”

“Carnival ships have called Australia home for nearly a decade and during that time, we have welcomed over one million guests onboard. That’s why for the first time 60% of our cruises will be across ANZ, with the remaining 40% visiting the South Pacific.”

“We know Aussies are hungry to keep exploring their backyard and with over one hundred sailings between June 2023 and June 2024, we’ll be sure to have a cruise for you.”
