Cruise to Australia
We are thinking of doing a cruise out of Australia in the next year or so and would be happy for any info anyone might cruiseline, itins, etc.... Also can anyone tell me which is better an Australia/Taz cruise or an Australia/NZ cruise. It seems the one to Taz is cheaper and shorter in duration

Don't know where you are starting from but wherever it is Australia New Zealand is a very long way to go for a short cruise. There are some wonderful 14 day cruises available on great lines like Holland or Princess, that make the Sydney-Auckland route one way or the other.
Tazmania is actually part of Australia and some cruises include Hobart/Port Arthur, then go on to Melbourne and then Sydney. Don't miss new Zealand, the scenery on the south island is spectacular. Check these links:

This 12 day cruise might be ideal for you.

LMAO Oh O! :shock:

Do the ozzy / nz cruise but if you want to see our capital city choose your "ship" carefully. The biggest princess ship dosnt visit us because the captain is a wimp?

Ah yes Lombard, you are in Wellington right? We were there on the Crystal Harmony in '93. A lovely city! We rode a cable car to the top of the hill and had tea and scones. Then back down, we went to an Aquarium with a glass tunnel in it. It was quite breezy, but we lived in Cheyenne Wyoming at the time so it seemed calm by comparison :D :!:
From there we went to Picton, a delightful place, and on to Milford sound, breathtakingly beautiful -- then across the Tasman Sea to Hobart Tasmania, then Melbourne and Sydney.
