Another all-inclusive cruise at incredible value, with return flights from Sydney to Barcelona provided by British Airways. This includes pre- and post-cruise accommodation in Spain, private transfers and almost all onboard meals and entertainment (except specialty restaurants and shows). You'll be travelling with MSC aboard the Meraviglia, for a contemporary, laid back and family friendly trip.

  • Valletta
  • Barcelona

If you want a bit more time on dry land, taking in some of the best spots in all of Europe, then this might be the trip for you.

$3,399: 13 nights in Venice and the Greek Isles, including Venice return airfares with Qatar Airways

It's said that Venice is slowly sinking, partly from the wash of luxury cruise ships in its ports. The truth is there's no real solution and this cruise is probably going to sell out anyway. You might as well just enjoy it while you can, and visit Venice before it turns into Atlantis.

This deal gives you time in the city, and includes one night pre-cruise and two-night post-cruise hotel stays so you can take it all in. Once you head out to sea though, it's off to the Montenegro, Athens and the Greek islands, on the Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Seas.

To get you there and back, this deal also includes luxurious return flights from Sydney to Venice with Qatar Airways.

  • Venice
  • Kotor
  • Corfu
  • Athens
  • Mykonos
  • Argostoli
  • Venice

If you've never been to Venice before, this trip is for you. At this outrageous value, it's actually literally possible that this will be the last, best value trip for Australians who want to visit the sinking city.

$3,199: 12 nights in the Mediterranean, including return airfares to Rome and from Athens

Fly to Rome, cruise to Athens with Princess Cruises and fly back with Qatar Airways, all included as part of the price. This Mediterranean adventure brings together the most luxurious names on the sea and in the sky, as well as 4-star hotel stays, for the ultimate Italy and Greece holiday, at nigh-unbeatable value.

  • Rome
  • Salerno
  • Kotor
  • Corfu
  • Chania
  • Mykonos
  • Athens

Princess Cruises and Qatar Airways. That's a lot of luxury for very little, to and through Greece and Italy.

$4,399: 15 nights in Ireland and Iceland with Celebrity Cruises and Qatar Airways

If you're looking for a more temperate getaway and spectacular landscapes, then Ireland and Iceland are the places to be. This extensive package takes you to all of the musts in the British Isles and Iceland, and includes return airfares from Sydney to Dublin on Qatar Airways.

You're also getting pre- and post-cruise accommodation in Dublin, and naturally all the quality, comfort and exceptional amenity range you can expect on Celebrity Cruises.

  • Dublin
  • Belfast
  • Reykjavik
  • Akureyri
  • Lerwick
  • Cobh (Cork)
  • Dublin

The main problem with Iceland is that it's so far away. It's a world leading destination, but Australians can't get there on a budget. This deal is one rare exception to that rule.

$4,390: 15 nights on the Baltic Seas, Scandinavia and Russia, including Qatar Airways return flights

Norwegian Cruises has mastered the Baltic Seas and Scandinavian fjords, so you couldn't ask for a better way of traversing them. You couldn't ask for a better price either, with this deal including four nights accommodation in a Copenhagen hotel, return flights on Qatar Airways and that Norwegian range of onboard amenities as you travel Denmark, Germany, Russia, Sweden, Estonia and Finland.

You'll enjoy a few nights in Copenhagen at both the start and end of the trip, as well as extended overnight in St Petersburg so you have time to see the sights.

  • Copenhagen
  • Berlin
  • Tallinn
  • St Petersburg
  • Helsinki
  • Stockholm
  • Copenhagen

There's never going to be enough time to do justice to Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Berlin and the other famous cities of Northern Europe. But this offer might be about as close you can get, with generous shore time and hotel stays included.
