Has anybody been on an Australia/New Zealand cruise? We are joining a 10-night New Zealand cruise from Sydney on 30 March. We would be docking on Port Chalmers, Wellington, Napier, and Picton in New Zealand then back to Sydney. The cruise starts and ends in Sydney.

My kids have been granted single-entry visas to Australia. I did mention in our application that we plan to go on a cruise. My questions are:

1. Do we get marked as having departed Australia when we set sail?
2. And are we considered re-entering Australia when we arrive in Sydney after the cruise?

Thanks!

^ havent been to the Australia/NZ cruise, but when you set sail out of Australia - you'll still pass immigration so you're passport will be stamped exiting the country. When you return - you'll pass by immigration again into Australia - and if a visa needed for you to enter Australia - then they will look for a visa on your passport.

^Thanks. But I actually found this on the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs site. I must have read this before applying for the visas but did not pay much attention:


Cruise

You will need a visa if you enter Australia during a cruise.

If your cruise is a round trip cruise, the time you spend on the cruise counts as time spent in Australia - that is, we do not consider you have left Australia. A round trip cruise will not reset your stay period on your visa.

Ask your cruise operator or travel agent if we consider your cruise to be a round trip cruise.

Round trip cruise

A round trip cruise is one that:
- starts and ends in Australia
- lasts up to 30 days

^You could skip the specialty restaurants especially kung less than 10 days yung cruise kasi sa totoo lang hindi namin nasulit. The food at Windjammer and other complimentary restaurants were good naman. Mas madalas pa kami dun sa Sorrento's (pizza place) kesa sa specialty restaurants. Yung tours din hindi sulit IMO. Mas okay pa na maglakad lakad lang and enjoy the place. Enjoy!
