Regent Seven Seas' Seven Seas Mariner docks at several points on Australia's south and east coast on cruises from Asia to Sydney and Auckland. Crystal Cruises' Kangaroos and Kiwis voyage—aboard Crystal Serenity—starts in Sydney and calls at Melbourne and Hobart before ending in Auckland. Crystal Symphony goes up past Brisbane, Cairns, the Barrier Reef, Darwin, and Indonesia to Singapore. Silversea's Silver Whisper has a similar route, and also runs between Australia and New Zealand.
