While winter is setting in, many lines are offering great deals on flights as well as drinks packages.

Last week, Royal Caribbean announced it would be offering guests flights to Sydney from just $1.

The offer, which is currently open end on Friday 31 May on selected sailings from October 29 to December 13.

“We know how much Australians love our style of cruising – we offer the biggest, newest and most modern ships sailing in the region. Since many of our local sailings depart from Sydney, we are thrilled to launch this brand new offer so our guests from all around Australia can sail with Royal Caribbean and save,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Royal Caribbean Australia & NZ.

“If you live in or near Brisbane, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Adelaide, Launceston, Canberra or Hobart you can add return Virgin Australia flights to Sydney from just $1.”

“That’s an unbelievable saving – not only is your accommodation, dining and entertainment looked after onboard, but so is your interstate air travel at a fraction of the usual cost,” said Armstrong.

The deal is available on most 2017 Royal Caribbean’s voyages around Australia, New Zealand as well as the South Pacific and this is one of the best ways to experience our largest ship, Ovation of the Seas.
