It's never been cheaper to sail the high seas in luxury. In fact, some holidaymakers are snapping up cruises which cost less than it does to stay at home.
The strength of the Aussie dollar and the growing international market for cruise ships means it is a great time to pick up a bargain. Luxury suites, which are still cheaper than an upmarket city hotel, will most likely cost you upwards of $200.
But for $50 or so a night, you will probably get a quad internal room – meaning there is no external porthole and you may have to share with strangers. But if that is fine by you, then your holiday will be a steal.
The Pacific Dawn ship, as seen on TV, is part of the P&O fleet. For more information, see the P&O website.
