Coastal Wilds Of Tasmania, February 2021

I would strongly recommend it to others, a totally satisfying cruise at all levels!

First the departing – the Tassie entry permit was easy to apply for online and clear in its directions about zones etc. As I was flying from Sydney which was an orange zone at the time, I had to travel direct to the airport by car with no stops other than for petrol or by plane – in other words NO TRAIN – I believe some (not on our tour) who did travel to the airport by train were asked to spend 2 weeks in quarantine or return home but I had no such issues and the arrival process was welcoming and straightforward. As for the Covid test I just had it done at one of the testing areas run by the local Area Health Service which provides a formal record of attendance and then the result was sent to my smartphone so I just showed that to the medical officer at pre-departure check-in where a copy was taken.

There were only 11 passengers on our cruise which included the medical officer and wife plus two guest lecturers so we formed a small cohesive group well looked after by the crew. Meals were excellent, staff were unfailingly attentive, friendly and solicitous to our needs. The talks were informative and low key in delivery encouraging participation with the topics complementing and providing further understanding of the excursions available and the areas we were travelling through.

As set out in the pre-departure information, some of the walks were a little more strenuous than I was prepared to undertake but there was no pressure to do other than what suited individual comfort and not doing everything did not detract from the overall experience. The scenery was spectacular and we all felt privileged to visit such wonderful areas. The weather was a major determinant in the itinerary and did result in reducing the time spent on the west coast for us however the ship’s Master sat with us to outline his concerns and intended response so that we were at all times aware of what was about to happen and why.

Wearing with Pride, May 2020

I want you all to know that when we go on a cruise we wear the navy blue Cruise Express lanyard with pride. We do this because we know that we have the best cruise and travel organisation in Australia looking after Cheryl and me.

Here’s a recent picture of Cheryl and I proudly wearing the Cruise Express lanyards.

We have paid a deposit with Cruise Express for a cruise in late January 2021 and we will be using Cruise Express again later next year for a second cruise.

We value the expertise, that Cruise Express offers, to have our cruise arrangements sorted perfectly.

Numerous Cruise Holidays, April 2020

How delighted I am with Cruise Express, and I want to say a big thank you to Michael Davis-Smith from the Gordon office. My friend Judy and I could not go on our Avalon Cruise in June 2020 (for obvious reasons) and we asked Michael if we could have a refund. So easy, done, finished and paid to us. BUT the best thing: they took a very small amount as a cancellation fee.

Not like another company that we are trying to get a refund from – and I am sorry that we did not book our Oberammergau part of the holiday with Cruise Express (Yes Hardy … I have learnt my lesson! You told me at Gordon at Christmas if I see something then come to you guys. I will. I promise).

Thank you Cruise Express, thank you Michael for your honesty.

I am sorry for all the work and pain this COVID-19 has caused you all. Stay safe and soon we will all be on the move again.

Look after yourself, and again a big thank you!


June, Kirribili NSW
