WIN A TRIP TO LONDON Why cruising? Cr uisinghas something for everyone -- every continent, every ocean and river, relaxation or excitement, adventure or culture. Cruising has undergone a renaissance over the past decade and there are now more options then ever -- so the choice is yours. Imagine cruising through the water ways of Europe and Russia, enjoying fine wine every day, only unpacking once and having the freedom to choose whether you join organised tours, explore ashore your way or stay aboard and take it easy. Imagine jumping into a Zodiac to explore ice packs and glaciers -- and then, unlike the adventurers of old, return again each day to relax in five-star lux ury. Imagine exploring new destinations with all the travel and shore hassles looked after by the cr uise company and your cruise director, or if you prefer to go up-market, even your personal butler to take care of your every need. These options all sound grand but when you decide to do more than imagine, how do you go about finding the right cr uise for you? This is where a cr uise expert can help. We're cruising specialists Every one of R ACT Travelworld's 37 consultants around the state has completed the ICCA (International Cruise Council of Australia) accreditation. This means that they have all completed a cr uise-specific training course, personally experienced cr uising and can provide professional advice on what to expect.

Your cruise specialists will also be in the know about what current deals are available, so you can be sure you'll get value for money.
