HAVE never been cruising before, but always wanted to try it out? Why not try a sampler cruise?

This is a great idea for anyone who really isn't sure what cruising is all about and whether it's for them.

Royal Caribbean has a three-day cruise which starts from and finishes in Sydney.

The Sampler Cruise on one of four of the Royal Caribbean cruise ships departs Sydney at 7pm on day one and returns at 6am on day four.

There are various departure dates in February and March 2018.

The price includes all shipboard meals in a huge variety of restaurants, other than in the speciality restaurants, and most of the onboard entertainment and port charges.

Prices vary across the four types of cabins across 16 decks - inside, outside, balcony and suite - which cater for up to 4905 passengers.  

There are 1500 staff to look after every aspect of your new experience, or short break.

You can duty-free shop, get active with rock climbing or on the surf simulator, watch an outdoor movie, swim indoors or outdoors, try to your luck in the casino, visit the spa and fitness centre, dance, drink and eat to your heart's content, or just relax the day and nights away.

To book a voyage, contact your preferred travel agent for more information, prices and booking conditions or go online to www.royalcaribbean.com.
