Australia plays host to an impressive 21 cruise ships during waves season (that’s including the 9 which sail year round)
Royal Caribbean, Holland America Line, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line & Silversea Cruises all send their ships to Australia during Waves Season, and the list will continue to grow as the demand for cruises grows.
Just last year Royal Caribbean sent its newest and technologically most advanced ship, Ovation of the Seas, to sail from Australia for its very first cruise season!
There are also dozens of other ships which call into Australian ports on world tours, or may briefly stop for several Australian based itineraries (QM2 for example did several New Zealand trips as part of her world tour)
