Crown and Country

26 October 2024 - 8 days SOLD OUT!

from $2,790* twin | $3,890* solo – SOLD OUT

Crown and Country – a grand adventure in just eight days. A tour where sights, sounds and atmosphere come to the forefront and you’re invited to drop your shoulders, relax and let your senses take over.

Aboard Crown Princess we head for Hobart, a destination that is both historic and cutting edge. What other destination is at once full of world class restaurants, extraordinary wildlife, street markets, spontaneous detours, perfect silence and above all personality?

Melbourne needs no introduction. Is it the coffee? Galleries? Hole in the wall eateries? Laneway art? Shopping? Yes to all of these. Our visit take things to another level by including not one but two steam trains – exclusive to us of course – a picnic lunch by the water and a staggering 150-year-old mansion (no dressing up required).

Before returning home we pause in Albury for the night (with drinks of course!). The views on our journey north, through ever changing countryside, is taken in from private train carriages. We invite you to join us and embrace the simple luxury of relaxation and exploration.

The Cruise Express difference

Unique and exclusive

We privately charter our heritage trains and our own carriages aboard the XPT, so you’ll travel as part of an exclusive Cruise Express group. Our itineraries are unique and carefully curated to allow you more time in each destination, often visiting some out of the ordinary places. And with our experienced team of Cruise Express Tour Managers onboard, all the little details are taken care of. See more, do more, stay longer!
