Captain Cook Cruises draws on four decades of cruising knowledge to offer small-ship discovery cruises throughout Australia and the Pacific at great-value prices. The cruise experience is informal and friendly, helped by expert local guides and crew members. Limited numbers on board all of our vessels mean that every guest is welcomed and becomes known as an individual.


Sydney Harbour is a great introduction to cruising for any age. Fiji is ideal for families and couples, while the Murray River is popular with mature travellers. Children can immerse themselves in the destination through daily shore and onboard activities. Child minding is available in Fiji for parents’ time out


Dining is an essential ingredient to your cruise. Menus (both buffet and à la carte) are international and feature fresh local delicacies, prepared onboard by master chefs. All vessels offer single-sitting dining rooms with tables for 6 to 10 guests.


Our small ship fleet offers comfortable facilities and accommodation at great-value prices. There are plenty of big-ship extras including a swimming pool, spas, saunas, massage and beauty treatments, entertainment and easy access small-boat boarding platforms.
