If luxurious cruises are your style or on your bucket list of experiences to try, then a Cruise to New Zealand is the perfect journey to hop aboard. New Zealand has over 9000 miles of coastline, making it the ultimate cruise destination. Where else could you cruise through dramatic Sounds and Fiords one day and be cycling the vineyards of world-class wineries the next ? !
During your New Zealand Cruise, you can interact with wildlife, learn more about Maori culture, or experience the local culinary traditions, cruising opens the door to life-changing moments and meaningful memories. All the while having access to the many luxuries aboard your ship.
With the comforts of your ship’s amenities never too far away, you are free to explore the landscapes throughout your shore days and return to the ship’s luxuries in the evening.
There’s no greater feeling than relaxing on an ocean view balcony after a long day of activities, sipping on local New Zealand wines while gazing out at the Southern Alps rising from the ocean up into the heavens.
Cruising in New Zealand gives travelers a unique perspective of the country’s wild, rugged beauty and scenic coastal landscapes which many tourists don’t get to see. Sitting out in the middle of the ocean, you will gain greater realization of New Zealand’s dramatic mountain ranges that rise from the ocean up to 12,218 ft in only a matter of miles.
Being long, narrow and compact, in New Zealand you are never too far away from your next port. Time spent at sea is kept to a minimum with land excursions often possible every other day. Options exist to rent a car and drive overland to meet your ship at the next port, giving you opportunity to tick off many other bucket list items along the way.
Cruise experiences can depart from ports worldwide and can include multiple South Pacific destinations like Australia, Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Tahiti. Or for the more adventurous, carry-on further south for an Antarctic experience.
