Set sail from Auckland on your 16 night New Zealand Explorer Cruise to:

Auckland
The urban area of Auckland, in the North Island, is the most populous in New Zealand. The only city in the world built on an active basaltic volcanic field, its warm, coastal climate allows for surfing at black-sand beaches, picnics in secluded coves, or horseback riding. Tour a sheep farm, take a guided tour of the coastal rainforest, or go on a harbor cruise. Immerse yourself in Auckland’s art, Māori culture, and history.

Russel - Bay Of Islands - Nzl
As the first permanent European settlement and seaport in New Zealand, Russell’s colorful history dates back to the early 1800s when it was a lawless frontier town and even called “the hell hole of the Pacific.” What a difference a couple of centuries make, as the guns, grog shops, and houses of ill repute have been replaced with quaint shops, cafés, and restaurants (although there is still plenty of grog to be found).

Waitangi - Bay Of Islands - Nzl
We’re just saying a friendly “hongi” hello. Because while you may have seen the legendary New Zealand All-Blacks Rugby Team perform the haka dance before the start of a match or watched the movie Whale Rider, when it comes to really understanding and appreciating the Maori culture and people, you don’t know tetahi until you visit Waitangi. Maori chiefs signed their 1840 accord with the British Crown at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, making it New Zealand’s most historic site.

Tauranga
Initially settled by the Maori in the 13th century, Tauranga is situated midway on the North Island’s eastern coast, and is now the most populous city in New Zealand’s renowned Bay of Plenty. A popular coastal town with a subtropical climate, Tauranga features beautiful golden beaches, lush parks, and a laid-back atmosphere, while offering an array of adventures including dolphin watching, hiking, fishing, sailing, and diving.

Napier
Located in Hawke’s Bay on the eastern coast of the North Island, Napier has a population of over 58,000 and has a sister city, Hastings, which together are known as “The Bay Cities.” Its exceptional concentration of 1930s art deco architecture is symptomatic of the city having been razed by the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake.

Wellington
With its fantastic nightlife and renowned entertainment district of Courtenay Place as well as an internationally recognized coffee culture, Wellington is both cosmopolitan and relaxed. From 19th-century wooden cottages to streamlined art deco structures, the city is filled with sculptures, fountains, and art galleries; be sure to visit The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, the national museum and art gallery.

Picton
A seaside town situated in the Marlborough region, and close to the head of Queen Charlotte Sound on the South Island, Picton is a great jumping off point for exploring the Marlborough Sounds. The area offers a variety of adventures including fishing, swimming, and bird watching—not to mention enjoying delicious local seafood.

Kaikoura - New Zealand
Two hours north of Christchurch is the “we can’t believe how beautiful this is” town of Kaikoura, situated on a rocky peninsula with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. The Maori name of Kaikoura translates to “meal of crayfish” (kai = food, koura = crayfish) for which the region is famous. And it’s this abundance of crayfish, combined with a complex marine system and rich habitat, which draws so many visitors here—humans and animals alike. In fact, you could call Kaikoura a marine mammal mecca, where sperm whales, fur seals, and dolphins live permanently, while migrating species like the rare Hector’s dolphins, humpback whales, and orca pop by for visits.

Akaroa
Named for the Māori word for “Long Harbor”, Akaroa is a village situated in the heart of an ancient volcano on the South Island of New Zealand. With waters that are home to the world’s smallest and rarest dolphin, the Hector’s Dolphin, Akaroa is a haven for animal lovers. Spot New Zealand fur seals, little blue penguins, and various sea life.Take a tour of an Alpaca farm, and get up close and personal with the unique animals.

Dunedin (Port Chalmers)
Located in the South Island region of New Zealand, Dunedin is bordered by the Tasman Sea. The gold rush in the early 1860s not only made it the richest province in the country, but also brought people from far and wide in search of wealth. Settled by Scotland, a statue of the poet Robbie Burns looks over the Octagon in the city’s center.

Milford Sound
Milford Sound is a fiord in the south west of New Zealand's South Island, within Fiordland National Park, Piopiotahi (Milford Sound) Marine Reserve, and the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site.

Hobart
Stroll the historic waterfront, famous for its Georgian buildings, and make sure to view the 1830s sandstone treasure, Salamanca Place. Climb Mount Wellington or take a day trip to discover the vast beauty of Bruny Island. Drive along the East Coast Escape to Freycinet National Park, part of the World Heritage-listed wilderness, and hike the six-day Overland Track, stretching over 40 miles. Visit the Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula, a mid-19th-century prison which was considered inescapable due in part to its surrounding of shark-infested waters.

Sydney
The state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in the country, Sydney sits on the Tasman Sea, along the southeast coast of Australia. Surrounding Sydney Harbor, the city has a rich artistic and cultural life: the iconic Sydney Opera House is not only a prominent feature of the famous skyline, but also a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
