It includes the first full year of sailings for the 3,900-passenger Carnival Splendor which will be home-ported in Sydney from December 2019.
Following the announcement on June 6 that the new international cruise ship terminal at Luggage Point will be completed in the second quarter of 2020 after a commercial agreement had been reached by Port of Brisbane and Carnival Australia and that Carnival Spirit will be permanently home-ported there, a number of exotic cruises are included. A seven-day cruise from Brisbane to Espiritu Santo, Mystery Island and Noumea on November 29, 2020, for example, costs from A$1,099 per person twin-share.
The 2020 programme also features a record number of 28 short cruises, giving passengers the opportunity to sample the product within five days or less.
Prices for Carnival Splendor’s three-night sampler cruise from Sydney on August 28, 2020, range from A$499 per person twin-share.
