Bravo: Cruise of the Performing Arts

Many of you will know that our passengers on Bravo are more elderly than our traditional music charters. In addition to this we have 70-80 wheelchairs on board. Even though we never oversell the capacity of the showroom the need to get everybody seated comfortably and leave additional room for those that are mobility challenged has encouraged us to take an even more conservative view.

In this case, we will carry a few less passengers. This can be achieved by leaving some empty cabins or by carrying more singles.

To begin with, we have decided to offer the opportunity for singles to travel on sole occupancy for  only 50% surcharge rather than the normal 100%.


Interior Stateroom:

Was $5228 NOW $3921

Oceanview Stateroom:

WAS $6624 NOW $4968

Balcony Stateroom

WAS $8286 NOW $6215

This will be strictly capacity controlled and will be withdrawn as soona s we have reduced the overall capacity to the desired level. This is for new bookings only and is available immediately.

Brochures are being available now.

You can call in to see us at The Travel Studio, at the Q Super Centre, Cnr Bermuda and Markeri Sts, Mermaid Waters 4218. ph 07 5572 7272, or email, if you'd like us to send you a brochure.
