Horizons Cruise and Tours' 2015 14-day Anzac Centenary Cruise and Tour package, departing Australia on 15 April 2015, is offering shipboard spending credit of A$100 per person as part of the package.
It's an added bonus on a cruise tour that includes return flights from Sydney, eight nights aboard MV Louis Cristal and all shore excursions.
Sailing from Athens, the ship heads to Turkey, taking in the exotic ports of Istanbul, Limnos, and Izmir – with focus on Gallipoli – a shore excursion to Anzac Cove, North Beach and the Ari Burnu beach cemetery.
After Istanbul fly to Paris for excursion of the Somme battlefield in France, where so many Diggers fought and lost their lives. Then, a tour of Paris.
Sydney-based operator Horizons Cruise and Tours, (a member of the Travel Partners group), has berths available.
An excellent opportunity still exists to take part in once-in-a-lifetime event that will have you joining fellow Australian veterans and families at Gallipoli 100 years on. An unforgettable Anzac Day cruise/tour caters both for those who were successful in the official ballot and for those who missed out.
The tour heads to Gallipoli Cove aboard the Louis Cruises luxury cruise ship M/V Louis Cristal. Prices for the cruise/tour start at A$7277 twin share per person, including return flights from Sydney.
As David Lyons of Horizons Cruise and Tours explains, passengers who were successful in the official Government Dawn Service ballot will be transferred ashore by Louis Cruises and escorted to Anzac Cove and afterwards to Istanbul.
Those who were unsuccessful in the Dawn Service ballot need not miss out, as the tour goes ashore at Anzac Cove on the Thursday before Anzac Day. M/V Louis Cristal will anchor at a designated position during the Centenary Dawn Service, a cruise highlight which will be screened live to the ship's poolside and theatre.
The M/V Louis Cristal cruise and the tour comply with all Turkish Government rules governing Anzac Day 2015.
Inclusive of round-strip airfares from Australia, prices for the cruise/tour, including return flights from Sydney, begin at A$7277, twin share per person. For singles and solo travelers single cabins, prices begin at A$8485.
Book before 10 February for the onboard credit package of A$100 per person.
