Australia is on lots of bucket lists. Here's a chance to tick it off yours for £1899 per person. This bumper deal from Ultra Cruises packs in return flights, a 19-night cruise with Princess Cruises with stops throughout Asia and Australia and hotel stays in Singapore and Sydney, for £700 less than usual.
Here's what's included:
