Cruise Description

7 Night Cruise sailing from Adelaide roundtrip aboard Astor.

ASTOR is a stylish fully stabilised and air-conditioned cruise liner with capacity for 620 guests. She has seven passenger decks. Her wide range of public facilities include the very impressive Waldorf Restaurant offering a traditional two sitting fixed time dining option and, as an alternative more informal experience, the stylish Übersee Club Bistro.

There are five lounge areas - the theatre style ASTOR Lounge, for some truly sparkling entertainment from the highly acclaimed show-team; the elegant Captain’s Club, a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails with the resident pianist; the intimate Hanse Bar which leads onto the stylish Sonnen (Sun) Terrace Bar, with wonderful panoramic ocean views; and the Poolside Bar where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink.

Other facilities include the ship’s Library, the Card Room, an internet café, a shopping arcade featuring a boutique, jeweller, perfumery and the Wellness Centre, which offers hairdressing and beauty treatments, an indoor swimming pool, ocean view fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities. There is an outdoor swimming pool, two whirlpools and, in keeping with her heritage, a traditional walk around promenade deck. There is a very good selection of comfortable modern cabin accommodation from Standard to De Luxe with 70% of cabins having an ocean view with individually controlled air-conditioning. An outstanding feature of ASTOR is the sports deck where you can enjoy volleyball, half court tennis, table tennis, jogging track, big board chess, golf practice and yoga.

Highlights of this cruise:

This seven-night itinerary provides a great opportunity to explore some of Tasmania’s great highlights.

First stop is the notorious Port Arthur, located on the scenic Tasman Peninsula in the south east of Tasmania. It is famous for being the site of one of Australia’s worst massacres, but it is also one of Australia’s most important heritage sites, with plenty of history to explore. ASTOR will then visit Hobart, where she will spend the night, allowing passengers time to have a good look around.

Visit one of several museums and galleries, climb the spectacular Mt Wellington, tour the Cascade Brewery, or try your luck at the casino. Burnie is Tasmania’s most westerly city and is known for its beaches, seafood, coffee and cheese. Take this opportunity to try some of the locally made gourmet delights, or explore some of the local galleries. There are three full days at sea on this cruise, providing plenty of opportunities to enjoy the facilities on board ASTOR.
