Our 2017 cruise (Papua New Guinea) is now behind us – a successful cruise and special experience for all of us. Our 2018 cruise (Alaska) is booking strongly. A year out it already has more booked than for any cruise since our 4th cruise in February 2014. It will be easily the most internationally diverse cruise group (and probably the most internationally diverse genealogy event) ever. Over 50% of our bookings to date are from outside Australia – from the US, Canada, the UK and New Zealand.
With good interest in our recent cruises we are now looking to 2019. No commitment has yet been made to any cruise/s in 2019, but here are candidates we are putting on the table for your feedback on (costs are estimated, inclusive of the conference fee – links are to indicative cruises which to give an idea of the itinerary, but may not be the actual cruise we settle on):
From the UK (Southampton) – 2019 cruises will probably be similar to these in 2018
- Baltic – 12 nights, 4 sea days, possibly Jun 2019 ($2600-$3000)
- Norwegian Fjords – 8 nights/2 sea days, possibly Aug 2019 ($2000-$2400)
- Italian Mediterranean – 14 nights, 6 sea days, possibly Sep 2019 ($2400-$2800)
From/to Australia (Sydney)
- to Tasmania – 6 nights, 2 sea days, from Feb 2019 – ($1000-$1100)
- to Singapore (one way) – 14 nights, 10 sea days, Mar 2019 ($2300-$2500)
- to the South Pacific – 10 nights, 4 sea days, possibly Apr 2019 ($1500-$1600)
- Seattle-Sydney (one way) – 21 nights, 15 sea days, mid Oct ($2400-$2700)
Should we choose a cruise from the UK (mid-late 2019) we may also offer a shorter, lower cost cruise from Sydney earlier in the year. Any cruise we offer will have our usual program with an international focus with leading international authorities as lead speakers.
