What will you choose?

As if your cruise can get more breathtaking, you’ll be met with a six-day mid-cruise overland programme where you can decide between two incredible opportunities that will link your whole itinerary together.

You can stay put in the Aussie world with a deep dive into the UNESCO-listed phenomenon of the Blue Mountains – spending two nights each in Katoomba and Sydney.

Here, you’ll ride the world’s steepest incline railway, hop between clifftops on a glass-bottom tram and descend into the Jamison Valley by cable car – all unique and wonderful ways to top off the ultimate Blue Mountain experience.

Nature enthusiasts will also be infatuated with the interactive Calmsley Hill City farm visit, bringing you classic Australian wildlife sightings where you’ll gawp at elusive emus and solitary koala bears.

If you’d prefer to swerve the alpine panoramas of Australia and investigate one of the world’s most favourite natural treasures elsewhere, then a journey from Chile to Argentina, passing through the amazing Andean Lakes Crossing may be more suited to you.

This whimsical sailing isn’t over, with the remainder of your time, a linking expedition aboard Oceania Cruises Marina will continue to lesser-visited but just as magical Patagonia and Antarctica.

Pssst, if you fancy visiting this hidden destination with Oceania Cruises, this is the best time to do so as you’ll both be new visitors together with this Argentinian outpost being a new unexplored area for the both of you.

Following this first-hand visit, a contrasting mixture of days will bring the cruise to a close, with time in the wild Falkland Islands, across the ferocious Antarctic seas and into the Chilean Fjords. This grand voyage really has it all…
