Mild Rover: Go your own way

Curated tours, cruises, resorts and reviews

Reds, whites and cruise (and Aussie rosés too)

Now here’s a cruise that combines two of my favourite things; floating and quaffing. A major step up from the party booze cruise on your city’s waterway, and the safer way to visit vineyards without arguments about designated drivers.

Take a trip to the Adelaide Hills where more than 200 local vineyards await your tasting notes with cold-climate wines from aromatic Riesling to full-bodied shiraz.

You can spend a day feasting in the famed Barossa Valley home to Penfolds Wines, renowned for its famed Grange Collection, or indulge in epicurean delights in McLaren Vale.

Venture out to some of Victoria’s famed wine regions, the Yarra Valley or Mornington Peninsula (one of my favourites for magnificent Chardies), on an optional wine-tasting excursion.

Fulfil your sommelier dreams exploring some of Australia’s finest wine regions on this unforgettable nine-night cruise onboard the spectacular Celebrity Edge®.

Departing from Sydney, you will be enchanted by historic landmarks, arresting panoramas, turquoise waters and exceptional culinary encounters.

Kangaroo Island, South Australia

Stroll the historic streets of Hobart and fall in love with Kangaroo Island’s epicurean delights.

Continue to Adelaide – Australia’s wine capital – where some of the best wine regions in the country are just a short drive away, before sailing on to Melbourne where endless opportunities for indulgence await.

When you’re not toasting with your tipple, you’ll be gliding through the water in the comfort of your own private, stylish stateroom.

The adventure begins with a one-night pre-cruise stay at the five-star Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney (or similar) before your cruise sets sail on 3 March 2025.

From the Harbour City, travel onward to discover the true essence of five fascinating Australian terroirs in unparalleled comfort before returning to Sydney.

Rooftop Garden, Celebrity Edge

Enjoy unmatched ocean views throughout the ship – thanks to its innovative outward-facing design – 29 unique food and drink experiences, onboard entertainment, glimmering pools and more, with all-inclusive dining and US$300 onboard credit per stateroom to put towards restaurants, spa treatments and entertainment.

Prices for the 11 day cruise start from A$1,799, for all the details from Luxury Escapes CLICK HERE or call 1300 820 853
