Sydney Opera house

A Sydney to Los Angeles cruise is next on our boomer travel schedule. Alan and I are boomers who can’t get enough of small ship cruising. After Virgin Australia whisks us across the Pacific, we’ll be ready to spend a couple of days exploring Sydney from our headquarters at the Four Seasons Sydney before cruising the Pacific on Seabourn Odyssey. Since this is our second trip to Australia’s Harbor City, we’ll be looking for adventure beyond the opera house and zoo. Here’s hoping that the weather won’t be as steamy as last time.

Once we board the Odyssey, it will be rest and relaxation South Pacific style. Take a look at this itinerary with mostly new-to-us ports:

  • Sydney, Austrailia
  • Brisbane, Australia
  • Nouema, New Caledonia
  • Il des Pins, New Caledonia
  • Port Vila, Vanuatu
  • Lautoka, Fiji
  • Pag Pago, American Samoa
  • Fanning Island, Kiribati
  • Kona, Hawaii
  • Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Lahaina, Hawaii
  • Los, Angeles, CA

Welcome to my home city. I have always likes the fact that one of Sydney’s first impressions for those arriving by cruise ship is the magnificent harbour and Opera House.
