Fly Down Under & Cruise Back Up - Spring 2018

This journey begins with a stop-over in Fiji that should help with jet-lag adjustment for the rest of the trip. About seven years ago we were fortunate enough to tour the perimeter of Australia on a month-long cruise. While this is where most of the people live, we missed the middle of the country, so we are going back to see a bit more including Tasmania. This tour will include many flights. They are the only practical alternative in this large country if you are not on a cruise. Once the Aussie tour is over, we'll board the Explorer of the Seas, which we have sailed on before, for the long trip back to the US. It stops at many islands that we have never heard of and a few familiar spots. We're expecting great weather and wonderful beaches.
