All aboard for 2018 – New issue Vacations & Travel Magazine, out now

With the good ship 2018 pulling out from the dock, start planning your travels for the year with the new issue of Vacations & Travel magazine out now. We have a buffet of cruise stories for you to feast on, including a look at all the new ships launching in the next year or so, from giants of the sea to boutique wonders and expedition adventurers. We explore the Rhone River in France, compare the differences of cruising the North and South Poles and we are aboard the brand new Norwegian Jewel on her inaugural Australian cruise.

In Asia, we look at the stylish and trendy places to drink, eat and have (good!) coffee in Saigon, visit Boracay with its beautiful beaches, and in Japan, we gather moss (not really!) in the places accessible by the new Kansai International Airport near Osaka, and explore the magical Tokushima and Miyoshi areas.

Amsterdam is always popular, but we have a great piece on ‘Lovely Dutch Towns You’ve Never Heard Of’ perhaps inspiring our readers to travel further afield. We love the piece on Cairo’s Al Muizz Street, known as the ‘Palace Walk’, and for something really different, we go snorkelling with salmon in Canada.

We swim with whale sharks in Ningaloo Reef, marvel at the wildlife in Madagascar and with Brazil’s new e-visas now making it easier for Australians to visit this incredible country, we take a look at the colourful, enigmatic Salvador.

We were also in Abu Dhabi to see the brand new Louvre Abu Dhabi in all its glory.

As for our travel in 2018, we asked the Vacations & Travel team to nominate the places they would love to visit this year, with some surprising answers.
