Welcome to Infinity Cruise

Cruising is now more popular than ever. The benefits of cruising are becoming more well known and the industry is the fastest growing holiday segment in the world. This growth means more choice... and more possibilities.

Cruising has developed from being the sole province of the rich in the 1920s, to now being a viable, desirable and accessible holiday option for everyone from families to singles. The different cruise styles, companies, itineraries and destinations now on offer are enormous. That's where this guide can help.

Compare different cruise companies on a like-for-like basis, to make comparisons easier and see the differences in what they offer more readily. This will make your cruise holiday decision easier.

The guide also examines the differences between ocean cruising and river cruising. It offers maps so you can see at a glance, which routes can be accessed from which ports.

All of which is designed to make your decision-making process more straightforward. If you still can't decide, your local Flight Centre consultant can answer any question you might have on which cruise option is best for you. In fact, most of our stores have at least one cruise specialist on staff who is well-equipped to answer all of your queries and help you find the holiday you want.

So why wait? Take a look through this guide and start preparing your next, or first, cruise holiday.

Bon voyage and happy cruising!

Take to the Seas

Set sail on your floating resort. Meet new friends, dine like never before, be pampered or go non-stop... the choice is yours.

More Australians than ever before are enjoying the fabulous benefits of cruising. There are lots of reasons why.

Traditionally, cruises have been considered as part of the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

These days, however, highly-competitive prices mean that the market has opened up for more of us to experience the pleasures of cruising. In fact, cruising is now the fastest growing holiday segment in the world, with new ships entering the market on a monthly basis.

The reasons behind the growth in cruising are simple. First, it's a very relaxing way to travel as you only have to unpack once and the exciting ports come to you. Even better, the cruise ships of today are destinations in themselves, with a huge range of activities available to appeal to all kinds of passengers.

On a cruise you can see the world, completely unwind, experience new cultures, dance the night away, feast on fabulous cuisine, learn new skills, make new friends and bond with your family. The possibilities are endless. Check out our Top 10 Reasons to Cruise, and set sail for your next horizon.
