Cruise Line Announces 94-Day Australia & New Zealand Voyage Roundtrip From California
Luxury Cruise Guide
21 September, 2022
Holland America Line is continuing to bolster its longer voyages departing from a North America homeport, and the 2024 Grand Australia and New Zealand voyage is the newest addition. The 94-day journey that's been more than 10 years in the making departs January 3, 2024, aboard Volendam, sailing roundtrip from San Diego, California.
Guests on this circumnavigation of the land Down Under will experience the vibrant Great Barrier Reef, natural wonders of Hawaii and the South Pacific, and lush landscapes of New Zealand—all without international air travel from the United States or with a convenient flight from Canada.
The 2024 Grand Australia and New Zealand voyage will offer 43 ports of call, including 17 around the Australian continent. There will be four overnight calls in Fremantle (Perth) and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand and Papeete, Tahiti. The itinerary will also include two evening departures, one from Honolulu, Hawaii, and the other from Brisbane, Australia.
Also included in the itinerary will be two full days of scenic cruising in the famed Great Barrier Reef, exploring the Ribbon Reef and Far North regions; 16 calls at a collection of stunning South Pacific islands; a call at Komodo Island, with the opportunity to see the iconic Komodo Dragon prowling the landscape; and scenic cruising in the Torres Strait and Milford Sound.
Two shorter segments are also available: the 58-day itinerary from San Diego to Sydney and the 36-day itinerary from Sydney to San Diego.
On a Grand Voyage, evening shipboard activities include local cultural entertainment and special guests. It also includes a Captain's Grand Voyage Dinner for all guests. Dining is elevated on each Grand Voyage with menus that change regularly, featuring local ingredients and regional cuisine.
Guests who book the full 94-day Grand Australia and New Zealand voyage by June 1, 2023, receive three percent savings off the cruise-only fare, along with amenities valued at up to $4,770 per person. Perks for verandah and select ocean-view staterooms include onboard spending money up to $300 per person, prepaid crew recognition (gratuities), luggage delivery service to and from San Diego for two pieces, initial in-suite liquor setup, a complimentary shore excursion and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine. Suites also receive onboard spending money up to $1,000 per person, unlimited luggage delivery service to and from San Diego and a Signature Internet Package.
Additional upcoming Grand Voyages include the 2022 and 2023 Grand Africa Voyage, 2023 and 2024 Grand World Voyages, and 2023 Grand South America and Antarctica Voyage.
