Sail-and-rail package for Christmas 2018
Those still suffering a serious Christmas hangover, and keen to let someone else do the work next December, can escape the silly season by joining ecruising.travel’s 22-night journey from Singapore to Sydney.
The sail-and-rail package spans three weeks and includes a 16-night voyage on the Azamara Quest from Singapore to Fremantle – Perth’s historic port – and four days crossing Australia from west to east on the Indian Pacific letting those with an adventurous spirit take in the Java Sea, West Australian coast, and outback.
Fly to Singapore on December 4 and spend two nights at the Hotel Jen Tanglin – a Shangri-La property a stone’s throw from Orchard Road shops – before boarding the Azamara Quest on December 6 and passing the next week visiting Jakarta, Semarang, Surabaya, Bali and Komodo in Indonesia.
Then there’s a day at sea before a weekend in Broome, and day-long stops in Exmouth and Geraldton, with the 686-passenger vessel arriving at Fremantle on December 21 and guests disembarking a day later.
The next leg starts on December 23, following an overnight stay in the West Australian capital, when the Indian Pacific leaves Perth for the four-day journey crossing the continent to Sydney.
When passengers are not exploring outback settlements like Kalgoorlie and Broken Hill they will savour views of the Nullarbor Plain from their comfortable Gold Service accommodations and dine aboard in the elegant Queen Adelaide Restaurant.
The 22-night package is from $7999 per person including Azamara’s “buy one and get one half off” deal, and up to $600 on-board credit, with that rate including accommodation and transfers in Singapore and Perth as well as an international economy flight and all meals during the rail and cruise sectors.
