Today Show cruise deals: Best domestic and International offers

With 1.4 million Aussies choosing to cruise last year, it’s no wonder there’s a bounty of phenomenal deals on incredible vessels to choose from. Whether you’re keen for a European adventure, or have exploring the Kimberleys on your bucket list – there’s a cruise, and a suitable discount – to suit.

Whether you’re a cruise virgin, or a long term advocate for sea holidays – finding a trip with a suitable price tag is both a thrill and reward. The great part is, you don’t need to look very far.

We’ve done the hard yards for you, rounding up the very best cruise deals on offer at the moment; some including return flights, others with over $1000 saving per person – and some with more free inclusions than all of those irritating car sales ads put together.

Here are the deals, as presented on the TODAY Show with Karl and Georgie – and a few added extras we just had to tell you about.
