(3.00 p.m. AEST) – Carnival Cruise Line today launched its largest round of sailings ever in Australia, featuring 115 sailings from July 2021 to June 2022.

Carnival Spirit and Carnival Splendor will sail year-round from Australia and offer a variety of new and unique itineraries including Carnival’s first-ever scenic cruising in the Kimberley. The 2021/22 season will see a 31 percent increase in cruises compared to the year prior, with departures from Brisbane and Sydney resulting in 270 port calls and 338 days at sea.

Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President and General Manager Carnival Cruise Line Australia said, “With so many unique, off-the-beaten-path destinations to explore on a Carnival cruise, Australians have more reasons than ever to choose Carnival.

Anyone who returns from the Kimberley will tell you it’s absolutely awe-inspiring – we’re excited for our guests to enjoy scenic cruising through Yampi Sound and the Hunter River, lit by the golden hues of sunset and sunrise.”

Highlights of the 2021/22 program include a 15-night sailing between Singapore and Brisbane offering scenic cruising through the Kimberley. This cruise also features a maiden call to Broome, as well as return visits to Bali, Darwin, Cairns and Airlie Beach.
