New Zealand 2017/18


Good Evening Fellow Single Parents Active Kids how are we and those remarkable kids?? Yep very determined to make the new Zealand cruise into a beautiful reality! This massive change of dates, departure ports I sincerely believe will be the clincher to get some more members on board, yep literally!

  • Have being thinking how can we make New Zealand more attractive to more members and make Xmas and New Year even more special.
  • How can we take out the Sydney option which would have added a fair cost and stuffing around?? Well here is the best option to make the New Zealand Cruise a reality.
  • Wow wrote most of this e-mail then worked out the cost per person, quad share is the way to go if it can be organised, $1000 cheaper per person for that option.


  • Cruise leaves Melbourne Thursday 21st of December 2017 at 4 pm.

  • Cruise comes back to Melbourne January 3rd 2018 at 6 pm.

  • Once you are a million per cent sure half you bond is required and our amazing group will pay the second half. This is required as soon as you rsvp.

  • Final payments are due in our account no later the 9th of September 2017.

  • You can pay weekly, fortnightly, month or one amount at the start and then the final amount totally your call, just a case of letting me know in your reply.

  • As soon as I finish this E-mail I am going to set up a weekly payment based on twin share (still hoping to be in quad share, but small steps young Moush!).

  • Promotions will come and go throughout this whole process, the current one which was just confirmed with the company I like to deal with I reckon is a ripper and it will be hard to get a better deal. How long the current deal lasts is anyone’s guess.

  • If we get 5 or more cabins then it will be a tad cheaper.

  • Xmas and New Year can be very lonely times of the year, extremely hard to be lonely when you are on a ship full of people wanting to have a great time!

  • You are more than welcome to come alone, I know at this stage Renae not keen as she has already enjoyed New Zealand, but lol, I think you can tell I am oh so keen to go and make tick off this massive bucket list item!

COST PER CABIN (cheapest cabins available are interior stateroom, level 5 I find the best of these):


1 adult and 1 child the cost is $5378.64 ($2689.32 each) ( (saving about $2200) , a deposit of $525 is required.

2 adults or (1 adult and 1 kids 12 and above) the cost is 5379.87 ($2689.98 each) (saving about $2275)


1 adult and 2 children cost is $6579.38 ($2193.12 each)( (saving about $3700), a deposit of $640 is required.

3 above 12 the cost is $6582.02 ($2194 each) (saving about $3800) a deposit of $729 is required.


2 adults and 2 kids under 12 cost is 6658.08 ($1664.52 each) (saving of (saving about $5260) a deposit of $675 is required.

4 above 12 the cost is $6660.53 ($1665.13 each) (saving about $5350) a deposit of $764 is required.


  • Every cabin receives $285 on board credit.

  • Every cabin receives a bottle of wine.

  • 2 specialty dinners per cabin.

There are none as we are leaving Australia, so the price you see below is final price for this cruise.
No visas are required for this cruise either.


Please only rsvp if you are a million per cent sure, as a few members know pulling out of a Cruise and getting a refund is really hard to do, so be totally sure before you give me the following details:

  • Full name as per passport including middle names.

  • Date of birth of you and your kids.

  • Current address, mobile number.

  • Cabin Type, are you looking to share, which I highly recommend, quad is so much cheaper per person then twin.

The best part about cruising other then the breath taking scenery to take in is once you have paid for the Cruise, all your food/entertainment/activities and accommodation on the ship are paid for. You can do some paid activities on the ship if you choose, but believe me when I say there is always plenty happening anyway.
Put as simply as possible, you can do as much or as little as you like all the way through the cruise including when we are docked for shore tours.
