Cruise Melbourne to New Zealand

Cruise Melbourne to New Zealand

Melbourne is a favourite departure point for cruises to New Zealand, due to its proximity. Princess Cruises' Dawn Princess is currently running many round-trip New Zealand cruises from Melbourne, and Celebrity also have itineraries from Melbourne ending in Auckland.


Cruise Around New Zealand and More

Ships often make the crossing of the Tasman first thing, starting off the cruise with a few relaxing sea days, and others call in to nearby Tasmania first. For most cruises from Melbourne to New Zealand, the first call is in the beautiful Milford Sound. These drowned valleys make for some spectacular scenic cruising! The usual itinerary then heads up the country's east coast, visiting the cities and towns of Dunedin, Akaroa, Wellington, Napier, Tauranga, Auckland and Paihia in the Bay of Islands, or some combination of these.
