New Zealand Cruise with Princess – 29 Jan 2018 – Melbourne

Step aboard Golden Princess for this amazing cruise with 7 ports of call. This is a round trip from Melbourne that will dazzle your senses.

Highlights include:

  • Fiordland National Park (scenic cruising) – New Zealand’s largest national park was formed millennia ago by massive glacial flows that carved deep fiords into the coast of New Zealand’s South Island. At the heart of Fiordland National Park lies Milford Sound. Lined by cliffs that soar nearly a mile above its surface, Milford Sound cuts into the heart of the Southern Alps. Rainforest clings to the cliffs and graceful waterfalls plummet into the void. Mile-high Mitre Peak dominates the upper reaches of the sound.
  • Dunedin – Perched on the hills above one of New Zealand’s loveliest harbors, Dunedin is a Kiwi city with a Scottish heart.
  • Akaroa – With French-named streets leading to restaurants serving French cuisine and colonial architecture all around, Akaroa’s heritage as the only French-founded community in New Zealand is unmistakable. Akaroa harbour is home to a diverse array of marine life, including rare Hector’s dolphins, and visitors are lured by the area’s secluded beaches and quaint boutiques.
  • Wellington – New Zealand’s capital offers stunning views of forested peninsulas, dramatic cliff-side homes and fine Victorian buildings.
  • Gisborne – Located at the confluence of three rivers, Gisborne has won renown of late as one of New Zealand’s fine wine regions, producing internationally acclaimed chardonnay and Pinot gris. The region also boasts one of the largest Maori populations in New Zealand – scenes from the award-winning film “Whale Rider” was shot at the nearby Whangara Marae, a major Maori cultural center.
  • Tauranga – New Zealand’s natural bounty is always on display at the Bay of Plenty. It was Captain James Cook who in 1769 aptly named this bay, thanks to the prosperous Maori villages of the region. Tauranga, the chief city, is a bustling port, an agricultural and timber center and a popular seaside resort.
  • Auckland – Straddling a narrow isthmus created by 60 different volcanoes, New Zealand’s former capital boasts scenic beauty, historical interest and a cosmopolitan collection of shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and gardens.
