Fly Auckland to Sydney and make your own way to your overnight accommodation.
2 December – Sydney
Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers just about anything—from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium’s underwater walkways or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower.
3rd Dec 2018 – At Sea
4th Dec 2018 – At Sea
5th December – Milford Sound to Dusky Sounds
As we sail into the narrow fjords of the Milford Sound, even your massive ship seems to shrink in comparison to the towering cliffs topped by lush mountain terrain. Situated within Fiordland National Park, this natural wonder is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site and is protected by its natural geography, which makes it a haven for all types of wildlife.
Steep cliffs that have been carved over centuries by dozens of waterfalls surround the largest and most complex of the many fjords along the New Zealand coast, Dusky Sound. It's also a wildlife paradise, with seals and dolphins patrolling the water, and birds like broad-billed prions, mottled petrels and sooty shearwaters floating on the overhead thermals.
6th December – Dunedin
Were it not for the absence of the Scottish brogue, you might think you'd landed in Edinburgh. Both the scenery and the architecture borrow heavily from Scotland. You can even shop for kilts or dig into a piece of fresh haggis. Dunedin is also home to New Zealand's only castle, a 15-year construction endeavour complete with the only staircase of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and magnificent woodwork.
7th December – Akaroa
Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is rich with beautiful bays, French and English colonial history, even the largest little penguin colony on the mainland. It's also home to the rarest and smallest marine dolphin and lots of water sports-kayaking, sailboats, also hiking paths and cycle tours. Pick up a unique souvenir from one of the many local craft shops and boutiques.
8th December – Wellington
From the new to the old, Wellington offers a bit of everything. Locals are particularly proud of the National Museum of New Zealand - Te Papa Tongarewa. Loosely translated as "our place" from the native Maori tongue, the museum is one of the world’s largest and most progressive. A great way to explore the city is on the restored cable cars, which traverse the shopping district. And if you want to experience it all from above, take in the panoramic views from Mount Victoria.
9th Dec 2018 – Napier
Arguably one of the prettiest cities in New Zealand, with elegant art deco architecture, captivating beaches and award-winning vineyards.
10th December – At Sea
11th December – Docked in Tauranga
12th December – Bay of Islands
Those who love beaches consider these some of the world’s finest, with their perfect white sand and crystal-clear water. And as tempted as you’ll be to pull up a lounge chair and soak in the surroundings, many consider this the ideal place to partake in more active pursuits, such as kayaking, mountain biking, parasailing, swimming with dolphins and scuba-diving.
13th December – Auckland
Your official welcome to New Zealand comes by way of a bustling harbour. Step ashore and into a surprisingly cosmopolitan environment. And once you venture inland, even more, surprises await, including a total of 48 dormant volcanoes, a lush, leafy urban cityscape filled with beautiful parks, and a number of renowned art galleries.
