The Kimberley onboard Ponant, July 2019

A girlfriend and I decided that we needed to see more of Australia so we booked a Ponant Kimberley cruise from Darwin to Broome through Cruise Express. The trip was fabulous and most enjoyable and the ship, Le Laperouse, was excellent though I did put on a few kilos! I do like small ships like her too.

The Kimberley was amazing – so remote and beautiful and quite overwhelming. I loved seeing the crocodiles on the banks of the gorges and the turtles and dugongs in the brilliant blue water. The Montgomery Reef was also wonderful. I would highly recommend Ponant Kimberley.

The Kimberley onboard Ponant, June 2019

I booked a Ponant cruise with a girlfriend from Darwin to Broome through Cruise Express last month aboard the new Le Laperouse and it was fantastic- such a great trip. I loved sitting in the Zodiacs to go up close to amazing rock formations. Watching the sunset and the moon rise at the same time in such an incredible place was also wonderful. The naturalists onboard were so passionate about the Kimberley. I’ve been on lots of cruises but this was the best so far. I highly recommend this cruise to anyone.

Evergreen European River Cruise, June 2019

Our river cruise from Amsterdam to Prague with Evergreen was wonderful – the most relaxing holiday I think we’ve ever had. The food and staff were great, the scenery just beautiful and we were upgraded too which was a bonus. Grant (our Cruise Express agent in Perth) was just fantastic in arranging everything too. So efficient and friendly and nothing was ever a problem. This was our first river cruise but we’d like to do another – perhaps one of the French river cruises.

The Great Southern Loop, May/June 2019

“Your Great Southern Loop rail trip (May/June) was just fabulous. I enjoyed seeing new places and the paddle-wheeler cruise on the Murray was wonderful.

What I love about rail travel is the ability to just sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery passing by. And you also get to meet lots of different people. I travel alone but I always bring ‘Captain Ted’ along with me (pictured with Wendy and our Cruise Express mascot, Duck, below). And now I have Duck to keep us company as well!

I did three rail and sail trips with Cruise Express last year and this is my fourth and I’m looking forward to more.”

Cherry Blossoms of Japan, March 2019

“What can we say? Your cruise tour in Japan last month was a fabulous holiday, surpassing all our expectations from Day 1!  Hardy (Cruise Express Tour Director) did a brilliant job organising and escorting the group around Japan and we experienced so many different things which were always fun to do. There were beautiful cherry blossoms everywhere and everyone in the group was so friendly – it felt like a family as Hardy said.

Our favourite part of Japan was Kyoto.  We’ve always wanted to visit the old Japan and we were well satisfied.

Thanks again Hardy and Cruise Express for making our holiday one of our best in a long time. We hope to travel with you again in the not too distant future.”
