Celebrate Christmas at sea

Supplied

GIVE that very special someone a Christmas present they'll cherish forever, a 12-night cruise from Sydney to Auckland aboard one of the largest and most spectacular superliners ever to visit Australia, the 122,000 tonne Celebrity Solstice.

From $2540pp twin-share through Cruiseco, the cruise includes accommodation in Celebrity's staterooms, choice of five formal or casual indoor or outdoor dining options, Lawn Club for country club-like relaxation on real, growing grass, a floor-to-ceiling glass walled Observation Lounge and an optional-cost luxury spa.

There are also two-nights post-cruise in Auckland's Stamford Plaza Hotel with breakfasts, one-way air travel from Auckland back to Sydney, as well as port charges, government fees and air taxes available through Cruiseco.

Guests join Solstice in Sydney on December 23, 2012 for a night aboard ship, and sail at 6.30pm on Christmas Eve for Melbourne, enjoying Christmas Day dining celebrations at sea and after a day in Melbourne, cruise to New Zealand's Doubtful, Dusky and Milford Sounds, Dunedi, and party-away New Year's Eve leaving Christchurch for Wellington, Tauranga and Auckland.
