Over the past 20 years, Phil has contributed to many of Australia’s leading gardening magazines, has written three books for ABC Books and worked as a TV presenter on Channel Nine’s Garden Gurus. He is currently the Horticultural Editor of ABC’s Gardening Australia magazine and host of ABC Radio’s Good Gardening program. Phil is looking forward to meeting you.

Cruise in luxury on board MS Veendam

Grandly proportioned and recently enhanced, MS Veendam combines 21st-century amenities and elegant spaces graced by a multi-million dollar art and antiques collection. One of MS Veendam’s many fine distinctions is its spacious living space. The cabins are spacious and offer a comfortable environment with high standards. The excellent cuisine is certainly one of the highlights of a cruise with Holland America Line. Meals on board MS Veendam are served in elegant dining rooms. Three restaurants are at your service with both regional and international specialties, as well as vegetarian options. A cruise with the MS Veendam offers a lot of stylish comfort and luxury.

Don’t worry about coming alone

About a third of people on the cruise travel alone. Travelrite can match people in twin-share cabins when available, saving you the single supplement. You
