Just across the Tasman, New Zealand is a dream cruise destination. With exciting cities, incredible culture, delicious produce and sights of sublime beauty such as Milford Sound and the Bounty Islands, New Zealand is well worth a visit.
Experience a melting pot of diverse cultures in Auckland – if you’re a foodie or into contemporary modern art, you should head to Karangahape Road for tasty treats and or a street art walking tour.
Hire a canoe and head out on the 15-kilometre-long Milford Sound fjord in the largest national park in New Zealand, Fiordland National Park. You might even encounter dolphins!
New Zealand is a country that simply cannot be described with one single adjective. With its incredibly diverse landscapes and climates, even one round trip around the entire country will leave you feeling like you have visited multiple countries instead of just one. The best time to embark on a cruise to New Zealand is between November and April – when summertime is in full swing. You will generally find more sun in the north and east of New Zealand than in the south and west.
Among the most popular ports in New Zealand are Auckland and the nation’s capital, Wellington. If you’re keen to offload some stress and relax under the gorgeous sun, then Tauranga promises all of that and more with its dreamy beaches. You can truly take some time to reflect on the beauty of nature in all its splendour at Milford Sound, a fjord announced as a UNESCO World Heritage Sight that will not fail to mesmerise you.
Combine your exciting New Zealand cruise with a trip around Australia or French Polynesia with cruise lines such as Princess Cruises or Celebrity Cruises. Or, if you’re truly hungry for the adventure of a lifetime, you can visit New Zealand as part of a world trip, during which you’ll visit other thrilling and exotic destinations along the way. You can be sure to find your perfect cruise departing from your nearest home part, as New Zealand cruises depart from ports including Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne.
Wonder at the unique diversity of wildlife, flora and fauna in New Zealand – such as the iconic flightless Kiwi, which you may well encounter in its natural habitat! Discover everything from breathtaking mountainous terrain to subtropical rainforests or metropolises, such as Auckland or Christchurch. Or look forward to stunning fjords, waterfalls and natural backdrops at Milford Sound. Pictures simply won’t do this picturesque country any justice.
