Christmas in Sydney…and a Cruise
Sydney for Christmas this year and have yet to decide how to see the festivities in, then the following should definitely be on your consideration list.
Adventure cruise specialists North Star Cruises are offering the ‘Sydney Rocks’ cruise 25th-29th December 2014 sailing Sydney – Hawksbury – Sydney.
Without doubt, the epicentre of excitement over the Christmas and New Year festive season is Sydney Harbour, and being outrageously spoilt aboard True North with your friends is the perfect way to enjoy the holiday! The Sydney Rocks voyage begins with a gourmet Christmas dinner harbour cruise, before waking on the water on Boxing Day for the start of the Sydney-Hobart yacht race! True North has the box seat as the fleet charges up the harbour toward the heads, and the excitement of the event is evident across the whole city. The cruise continues with a gentle two-day recovery at Maitland Bay and the beautiful Hawksbury estuary, with the opportunity for shore visits and a trip over the Blue Mountains escarpment in the ships helicopter.
North Star Cruises’ ship, the True North, is 164 feet long with a seven foot draft. The ship was purpose-built to sail deep into the very heart of wilderness areas that larger ships simply cannot access. The True North features a sundeck, a forward observation lounge, a ship’s lounge, an alfresco bar and a sports deck. The ship’s naturalist presents interpretative information on plasma screens and, an internet café enables convenient communication with the outside world.
The ship’s modern Australian cuisine is supplemented with locally sourced ingredients and complemented by an outstanding selection of Australian wines. Signature dining includes freshly caught barramundi – a revered sport fish possibly caught by guests, Angus or delicate Wagyu beef, or exquisite Australian lamb.
