Elegant, old-world-style Cunard Line will offer their first-ever circumnavigation of Australia, primed for some unrivaled Down Under discovery, come February. Setting sail on February 14 (an over-the-top Valentine for your sweetie, perhaps?) from Sydney (also its point of return), the 22-night cruise aboard the 2,620-passenger Queen Mary 2 will provide cruisers a rare opportunity to completely navigate the massive country, as part of the vessel’s 2012 World Voyage.

The itinerary includes stops at eight Australian ports –  in Fremantle, Adelaide, and the Whitsunday Islands, along with maiden visits to Cairns, Darwin, Melbourne, and Brisbane – as well as a stopover in Bali.

Rates on the "Royal Circumnavigation of Australia" itinerary start at $3,998 per person;
