Crochet Cruises: Australia to New Zealand
Our 18th crochet cruise takes us to Australia to New Zealand in February 2021. There has been a demand for Daniel and me to visit our southern hemisphere crocheters. We’ve included a Crochet Cruise departing from Sydney, Australia and will end in Auckland, New Zealand. This is an extended crochet cruise of 9 days on the beautiful Celebrity Solstice cruise ship.
With crocheters on board to make the journey even more fabulous. We have workshops, stitch socials and free time to hook and explore. See exotic locations together as a group.
The Crochet Cruises caters to crocheters and yes, crocheters being non-crocheting friends too. The rates shown on the booking includes the activity fee. This means that non-crochet guests will receive a discount off their cruise tickets to have the activity fee removed. To qualify to book with us, you must use your agent, Sherry Leybovich. Sherry keeps our group organized with the cruise line.
Maximum Party Size
Our party is set to a maximum that fits in the conference facility. Our party is typically 90 – 120 crocheting guests. Once our party max is reached, our cruises are closed for further bookings. Also, we are subjected to available cabin space on board the cruise ship. This means that once all of the cabins sell out on the cruise ship, our party bookings fully stop, even if we are not at capacity. Longer cruises more than 7 days tend to sell out quicker closing off our bookings earlier.
It’s strongly recommended you purchase travel insurance as anything can happen with your health. Sherry will discuss health insurance as it needs to be purchased at the time of booking.

We community directly through Facebook for all our party needs. Each cruise has its own private crochet group. We have found over the years that direct emails get filtered to the spam/junk folders too often that cruisers miss announcements from us.
The charity project is generally announced 4 – 6 months in advance of a crochet cruise. It’s announced through the private cruise group. It’s really important that you complete the pre-cruise homework as it’s part of the exercises and workshops on board.
Once you have confirmed your booking with our agent, Sherry, we will invite you to join the private group. It’s up to you to keep in touch and check in regularly.
We are a private group on the cruise ship that requires bookings ahead of time. Each guest is a registered party guest. With the activity package purchased, we order enough supplies to send to the ship ahead of time. We cannot accept any passengers who happen to be on board and didn’t know we are there. Also, your booking must be done through our agent to keep us aligned with the cruise line. We do not accept guests who have decided to book through another agent as it overly complicates our event planning. Cabins pool together for the overall event planning costs we incur by this event production on board.
