Cruise Diary: Brilliance of the Seas amongst cruise ships in port in Sydney next week

The spectacular cityscape around Sydney Harbour, Australia. The cruise ship Carnival Spirit is moored at the Overseas Terminal next to Circular Quay. Across the water we see the iconic form of the Sydney Opera House and beyond that the Royal Botanic Gardens.

As the summer of cruising approaches, Sydney Harbour – arguably the best place in the world to see a cruise ship up close and personal – will be at the epicentre of the cruise industry.

Travellers, cruise fans and sight-seers alike will be keen to see which ocean-going beauties are in town. Travel Weekly will give you a heads-up each week as to which ships will be in port in Sydney, as well as letting you know of any first-time visitors or particularly exciting ships in port.
