Sydney Weekend Winter Special




24 April 2008

Winter Warmer Sail…


Take your partner for a cosy weekend away on Sydney Harbour this winter with partners cruising for half price on Captain Cook Cruises Weekend Explorer Cruise. Scheduled winter sailings include June 13, July 4 and August 22.


Captain Cook's Explorer, Sydney's only overnight accommodated cruise ship, departs every Friday night from King Street Wharf at 6.00pm and returns Sunday at 3.00pm and provides a unique way for Sydney's visitors and locals to see and discover a side of Sydney they've never seen before.


Passengers will explore the most beautiful areas accessible by water; Watson's Bay, the Rocks, Bradley's Head, Botanical Gardens, Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers - over 250 kilometres of foreshore and beaches on one trip.


But the real experience is on-shore. Stroll through the Botanic Gardens, discover hidden beaches and caves around Sydney Harbour, explore the historic Rocks district and the old artillery emplacement on Bradley's Heads, and relax beachside at Watson's Bay.


Dining on board is first class. Enjoy hearty buffet breakfasts, al fresco luncheons featuring fresh local seafood, an elegant Captain's Dinner with live music and dancing and the city skyline as the perfect backdrop to it all.


The ship has 60 cabins for overnight comfort with a choice of twin or double berths all with harbour views and ensuite facilities. Or see Sydney like never before on the Sun Deck which affords 360 degree viewing.


This two night leisurely cruise is packed full of fine food and wine, spectacular views, sightseeing, excellent service, exciting shore excursions, music, dancing and relaxation.


Prices for cruises departing June 13, July 4 and August 22 start from $470 twin share for the first person and from $235 twin share for the second person. All prices include accommodation, meals and most activities and this offer is valid for sale and travel until August 22nd, 2008.


If you can't wait until December for Christmas, Captain Cook Cruises July 4th departure is celebrating Christmas in July. The MV Captain Cook's Explorer will be decorated in Christmas decorations and passengers will receive a special visit and gift from Santa and be treated to a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
