At this time of year many would have already planned a winter getaway to warmer climes or be thinking further ahead to 2020-21.

Or perhaps the chilli early mornings have got you thinking about a last-minute midyear escape.

Whatever your reason, there are myriad cruise holiday offers available across the globe and closer to home — the picturesque rivers of Europe, expeditions to South America, tropical South-East Asia, the Australian coast, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

We cast our net wide in this special edition of Travel. Whether it’s solo, couple or family; cruise only; or fly-cruise combinations; special flight offers; earlybird and last minute deals; new ships, itineraries and new names in cruising for West Australians ... we have options to consider for your next holiday.
