    Day 1: 26 Dec 2019 – SYDNEY

    Nestled around one of the world’s most beautiful harbours, Sydney is both trendy and classic, urbane yet laid-back. Composed of ocean and light, of sailors and businessmen, this city alone inspires many travellers to visit the “Land Down Under”. Located between the Pacific Ocean and the elegant silhouettes of the Blue Mountains, it encapsulates the Australian way of life: surfing beaches, quiet suburbs, skyscrapers, Victorian cottages and tropical gardens. Sydney is filled with history and harmoniously blends old world charm and ultra-modern architecture, with its sail-shaped Opera House which sits alongside the historic district of The Rocks as the Harbour Bridge stretches across the bay. 

    Day 2: 27 Dec 2019 – AT SEA

    During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness centre. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the PONANT photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

    Day 3: 28 Dec 2019 – FLINDERS ISLAND28 December 2019 – Flinders Island

    Trousers Point on Flinders Island is known for its crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches and brightly coloured lichen covered granite. Overlooked by the spectacular Mt Strzelecki, guests will be able to take the 1 ½ hour (3.5km) circuit track, showcasing the unusual rock formations, offshore islands and white sand beaches. They will also have the opportunity to swim in the refreshing waters of Trousers Point.

    Day 4: 29 Dec 2019 – WINEGLASS BAY29 December 2019 – Wineglass Bay

    Located on the east coast of Tasmania in the heart of the famous Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay proudly deploys the curve of its white sandy beach, which forms an elegant smile. Considered one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world, this perfectly-shaped crescent, whose sapphire waters contrast stunningly with the pink and grey granite landscape, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982 and is indisputably one of Australia’s most beautiful natural environments.

    Day 5, 6 & 7: 30 Dec 2019 – 1 Jan 2020 – HOBART, TASMANIA30 December 2019▸1 January 2020 – Hobart, Tasmania

    Hobart occupies a wonderful location at the mouth of the Derwent River, overseen by majestic Mt Wellington and surrounded by natural bushland. The Tasmanian capital is Australia’s second-oldest city, after Sydney, and the picturesque waterfront is bordered by 19th-century warehouses and colonial mansions. Salamanca Place is packed with shops, galleries and restaurants and the fascinating Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is a short ferry ride from the quay. Hobart is within easy reach of some of Tasmania’s best-known destinations, from historic Port Arthur and the rugged Tasman Peninsula to Bruny Island, the Huon and Derwent Valleys and Mount Field National Park.
