Returning in 2022 is a circumnavigation of Australia. The 35-day Aussie Adventure aboard Regatta will take guests north from Sydney along the east coast en-route to Darwin via Cairns, Thursday Island, the Coral Sea and Arafura Sea. From the Northern Territory capital guests sail across the Timor Sea to Komodo and onto Bali for an overnight stay on Christmas night in the Indonesian tourist mecca.
The voyage then charts a course south, visiting Australia’s northwest coastline with stops in Broome and Geraldton and another overnight stay in Perth (Fremantle). From here it’s on to Busselton and Albany before crossing the Great Australian Bight to Adelaide. A full-day awaits guests on Kangaroo Island, followed by more wildlife spotting opportunities on Phillip Island just outside of Melbourne. The next three nights are spent in Tasmanian waters with port calls in Burnie, Hobart and Port Arthur, before Regatta returns to Sydney.
Fares for the Aussie Adventure start at $10,930 per guest.
Patagonia & Glaciers
Operating westbound from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Santiago del Chile (and vice-versa in reverse), the 20-day Patagonia & Glaciers will spend half of its entire voyage with cruise days for guests to lap up the gourmet dining experiences and lavish amenities and experiences offered aboard Marina. Port calls are planned for Montevideo and Punta Del Este in Uruguay, and Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands before five-days of back-to-back days at sea in Antarctic waters, including the infamous Drake Passage.
