Formed in 1990, The Ultimate Travel Group first began trading as Fastbook Holidays.  In 2006, we sold our Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island businesses in order to focus on small ship cruising in the Australia and New Zealand markets.  Since then, the company has been successfully operating as Ultimate Cruising and Ultimate Travel in Australia, and Ultimate Cruising and Ultimate Tahiti in New Zealand.


Experts in small ship cruising, Ultimate Cruising specialises in sourcing cruise ships offering a holiday experience that simply cannot be found on larger ships.  Typically these smaller ships carry less than 350 people and offer unique and enriching experiences with smaller groups of people.  Often with an element of soft adventure or venturing into remote destinations, our mission is to deliver the ultimate in cruising!


Our experienced specialist international travel consultants live and breathe travel and can advise on all travel requirements anywhere in the world.  Our high level of repeat clientele including members of the Probus Member Benefit Scheme and Ultimate Past Passengers Scheme can rely on our sound knowledge and expertise to ensure the best service every time.


Specialising in mesmerising Tahiti, Ultimate Tahiti offers both cruise and land-only holidays in French Polynesia for New Zealanders travelling to these beautiful islands.  Our expertise in the myriad islands that make up the five archipelagos of this breath-taking destination, make holidaying in Tahiti truly memorable.

Please be aware that we derive our income from a combination of commission payments from suppliers and service fees.
