Amazing video. Would you like to experience this?

Ben Tavener

As part of our trip to Natal, Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil’s blissfully beach-packed northeast region, we went snorkelling on a coral reef.

The reef is located some 7km out in the Atlantic Ocean off the seaside town of Maracajaú. Using our new GoPro Hero 2 camera, capable of filming up to 60m below the surface, we filmed what we could – despite the sea being very choppy and quite bubbly!

Australian Cruise – No really!

Australian Cruise

11-NIGHT CRUISE ON THE RCCL RHAPSODY OF THE SEAS DEPARTS SYDNEY February 18 – March 1, 2013

Price £126 Approx

RHAPSODY OF THE SEASWhat’s not to love? Endless outdoor adventure around the harbor or in spots like the Blue Mountains. Golden sandy beaches named Bondi, Bilgola and Coogee (which are not only beautiful, but also fun to say). A bustling art and entertainment scene. Countless museums, galleries and world-class restaurants where the dishes go way beyond the local Vegemite.

Then you will board the newly renovated Rhapsody of the Seas and your first stop is Newcastle, Australia. New South Wales’ second largest city provides all the excitement of a large city with the hospitality of a regional town. In fact, Newcastle is an Australian port city which stands apart from other port cities. A harbor with a picturesque coastline, an interesting topography, tree-lined streets and a rich legacy of historic and architecturally significant buildings make up Newcastle. Exploring the downtown area comes with a variety of restaurants with diverse urban and waterfront dining options, a refreshing mix of boutique shopping and a range of inner-city galleries. A treat for the senses, indeed.

When you’re in the city of Cairns, the islands, rainforest and reef of tropical North Queensland are never too far away. Take the opportunity and snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef, a remarkable diving site filled with vibrant coral islands and marine life. Enjoy the oceanfront energy of the Cairns Esplanade and browse the restaurants, shops and bars. Feel the adrenaline pumping as you white-water raft down the nearby rivers and take in the natural beauty as you travel to the butterfly-fringed village of Kuranda. Don’t miss a day trip to the magical Daintree Rainforest, considered the planet’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest.
Next stop, Willis Island, located east of Australia just beyond the Great Barrier Reef, is the only permanently inhabited island in Australia’s Coral Sea Islands Territory. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has a weather monitoring station on the island, staffed by three people, who make up the island’s human population. Thousands of masked, brown and red-footed boobies – a seabird that looks like a dressed-up seagull – keep them company. The town of Airlie Beach, often referred to as the “Gateway to the Whitsundays,” radiates a certain bohemian charm, with a blend of cosmopolitan and contemporary Australian style. Facing north on the eastern coast of Australia, Airlie Beach is blessed with late afternoon sun in the winter and cool, refreshing breezes in the summer. The coastal village of Airlie Beach serves as the ideal launching pad to explore the majestic Whitsunday islands, vast areas of untouched natural forests and the idyllic Great Barrier Reef.
Last stop, the cool and casual capital of Queensland offers all the glitz and glam of a big city without the big city airs. Located on the banks of the Brisbane River and surrounded by rolling hills, this urban oasis sure is easy on the eyes. Whether you’re headed uptown, downtown or out of town, you’ll encounter your fair share of first-ever experiences. Scale the legendary Story Bridge, take a sandboarding tour on North Stradbroke Island. Or, if you’d like to connect with your inner Aussie, try your hand at sheep shearing at the Australian Woolshed. You are sure to enjoy this extensive itinerary and the Rhapsody of the Seas.

Included:

  • 11-night cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas.
  • Choice of casual buffet or formal gourmet dining.
  • Rock-climbing wall.
  • Latté-tudes coffee house featuring Seattle’s Best Coffee.
  • Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
  • Themed bars and lounges, including Boleros Latin lounge.
  • 2 outdoor pools.
  • Adventure Ocean youth facilities, including teen-only areas, Fuel and Living Room.
  • Open-air basketball court.
  • Gratuities not included, average $11.50 per day.
  • The member who booked the DreamTrip will be emailed an e-Folder containing destination details 2 weeks prior to travel.
  • If a hosted DreamTrip, a Welcome Check-In on the day of arrival and Meet & Greet Party, will be provided to the members and their guests.

With more fairytale castles than anywhere else on the planet and boasting architectural splendors that span at least a thousand years, Prague has inspired artists of the caliber of Amadeus Mozart, Antonin Dvorak and Franz Kafka to produce some of their finest work. Known to its many past and present devotees as the Golden City of Spires, the Romanesque, Baroque, Gothic, Art Nouveau and even Cubist buildings that pepper this artistically bold capital have helped earn it the ultimate accolade: UNESCO World Heritage status. And now there’s the ultra-modern Corinthia Hotel Prague; an architectural landmark of glass-hung towers and a luxury tribute to the Czech capital’s thoroughly avant-garde spirit. Standing on the crown of one of Prague’s 9 hills and offering breathtaking, panoramic city views, we would like to invite you to explore this compelling destination from the vantage point of its finest luxury hotel.
