Cruise Description

54 Night Cruise sailing from Tilbury to Perth aboard Astor.

This epic southbound voyage provides an opportunity to visit some of those places that you thought you may never get the chance to visit - all in one outstanding itinerary. Sailing from the UK to Australia arriving in time for Christmas, you will visit the West Indies; navigate the Panama Canal; discover island paradises of the South Pacific; be enthralled by New Zealand’s dramatic scenery; and complete your voyage in amazing Australia.

Relax and enjoy lazy days and carefree evenings as Astor heads for the Caribbean calling at cosmopolitan Amsterdam, historic Lisbon and beautiful Madeira en route. In the West Indies, the stunning beaches of Barbados and Grenada are something that you will have the chance to enjoy, plus a fascinating call at wonderfully preserved Cartegena, one of Colombia’s oldest settlements and without doubt one of South America's most impressive colonial cities.A call at Cristobal offers a chance to visit Panama City. A highlight will be Astor’s navigation of the iconic Panama Canal, the body of water that separates North America and South America, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Over 100 years old, this manmade canal is an engineering wonder.

The voyage from here to Auckland, New Zealand is no less impressive, with stops at three amazingly scenic French Polynesian islands of Nuku Hiva, Tahiti and Bora Bora. You will be introduced to a Pacific island lifestyle that will be difficult to leave behind. Cross the International Dateline to Auckland, where a blend of harbour, islands, Polynesian culture and modern city environment has created a lifestyle ranked amongst the best in the world. Astor then arrives on Australia’s east coast, where she will visit Sydney. Arriving into Sydney Harbour with its iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House is one of the great joys of cruising. You will then continue to Adelaide, with its elegant colonial buildings, before sailing up to Fremantle at the end of this quite remarkable adventure.

Highlights of this cruise:

With more bicycles than permanent residents, the Dutch capital is both charming and quirky. Aesthetically little has changed in the centre since its 17th century Golden Age. Beautiful gabled houses and merchants’ mansions line serene, tree-lined canals, which are laid out in five concentric circles and crossed by numerous bridges. The Royal Palace, originally built as a Town Hall in the 17th century, stands on a large square in the centre of the city. Considered one of Europe’s major art capitals, Amsterdam is home to a number of superb galleries and museums including the famous Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum.

Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city, is home to the magnificent Jeronimos Monastery, Belem Tower, 25th April Bridge and Monument of the Discoveries. Wander through the maze of narrow streets in the delightful Alfama district and ride one of the famous old trams.

Set in a magnificent natural amphitheatre overlooking a wide bay, Funchal is the delightful capital of Madeira. The harbour is right in the centre of town and as you approach you are greeted with the spectacular sight of whitewashed buildings with red tiled roofs tumbling down the verdant mountain.

The capital of Barbados, and UNESCO World Heritage site, Bridgetown has a distinctly British atmosphere - you’ll even find a Trafalgar Square with a statue of Nelson. Barbados typifies our idea of a classic West Indian island like no other. The island has a beautiful interior dotted with gardens and English country churches, and is rimmed with wonderful breaches.

St Georges
The pretty port of St. George’s is the capital of Grenada, the famed 'Spice Island'. Lush tropical rainforests, spectacular mountainous scenery, vanilla plantations and the wonderful fragrance and aroma of the island’s spices of nutmeg and cinnamon combine to provide a real treasure trove just waiting to be explored. The horseshoe shaped harbour is surrounded by terraced hill slopes with steep cobbled streets, quaint buildings and alleyways leading to the bustling marketplace, home to a plethora of spice traders. A walk to the hillside fort provides a marvellous panorama of the town or what about taking a water taxi to the beautiful Grand Anse beach.

This bustling city was the beating heart of the Spanish Empire in the New World as Spanish conquerors used it as a departure point for galleons bound for Europe, laden down with plundered treasures. The 16th and 17th century buildings that line the cobbled streets of the Old Town have been given UNESCO World Heritage status and hark back to an age of adventure, conflict and piracy.
