Week Tropique: 7 nights in May 2013

This week of cruising will take you to the tropical highlights of northern Queensland! Departing from Brisbane, the first stop is at Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays, a popular holiday destination for Australians and international tourists. Next is Yorkey's Knob, a port which is part of the city of Cairns, which has swimming beaches to the north and south and is close to the incredible Daintree Rainforest. Port Douglas comes after that, a town which features the stunning 4-mile beach. The final item on the agenda before the ship returns to Brisbane is scenic cruising at Willis Island, which is protected against landings but passengers will enjoy the scenery and birdlife from the ship.
