The 4,180-berth ship will depart Singapore on November 30, 2016, with a spectacular itinerary showcasing four beautiful Australian ports including Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart and Sydney.

Amber Wilson, Cruiseco’s International Marketing Manager, said: “Sailing on an inaugural voyage into Australia is an extremely special and memorable occasion. We are thrilled to offer our guests the opportunity to do just that with Cruiseco’s exclusive Ovation of the Seas charter. Cruising through Australia’s crystal waters is a lifetime goal for many UK travellers, and with the added advantage of concluding the voyage in Sydney, within view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, I encourage guests to book early to secure their spot before cabins sell out.¨

One-Time Only Singapore-to-Sydney Sailing November 22, 2015, On Board SuperStar Virgo, Starting at £1,325 per person Cruise Only

SuperStar Virgo sternSeveral container ships that used to carry passengers between Singapore and Australia, as well as New Zealand ports, including the Hebe and the Praha, have recently been transferred elsewhere. The result is that overland travellers must now head for Hong Kong, China or Tawain to catch the CMA CGM Hugo in order to sail to Australia.

Relief is in sight in the fourth quarter of this year, however, as Star Cruises is scheduling a once-only voyage from Singapore to Sydney this November by the SuperStar Virgo (shown above), with arrival at Sydney set for Wednesday, December 9, well in time for Christnas.
