Lynne Bennie was appointed as the APS Cruise organiser and as such has organised this amazing cruise deal with Dan Brown manager of Flight Centre Forster for APS members and friends.Dan has advised the following:

36 cabins are held and ready to be booked and can request more if needed. Each booking will receive a travel pack, all travel documentation, baggage tags, lanyards. The advantage of more people booking through this group allocation, is that the more numbers we have the better areas we will be able to request on-board for any meetings etc.

He will be able to assist with setting up members cruise personalisers,  cabin selection, shore tours and dining times, and for anybody with a Military background he can also add the $100 on-board credit too.

The benefit for the society booking in sooner rather than later is the opportunity to select the exact cabin that the members wish for, with this in mind the voyage on the
14th March heads South to the National Parks, before heading North along the Coastline, therefore it would certainly be worth getting cabins on the portside of the ship to guarantee best viewing spots on arrival into and out of ports! This is no secret that these are always the first to get booked!

For anybody that requires flights to Sydney, he can also assist with this. An email list will be set up with all booked members on it, to keep everybody updated.

As the cruise has many different categories from Inside rooms to Suites, he has locked in a group rate, but Princess have advised they can introduce sail fares at anytime and therefore it will be a matter of checking for the best possible price when each member is ready to book. The deposit is 20% of the price of the cabin, with the final amount due in November 2020.
