Natural wonder, native culture, and new immersive experiences are yours to discover as you sail from Australia around New Zealand and back again. Depart from Melbourne—Australia’s cultural capital—then you’ve got three sailing days to experience all your boutique hotel at sea has to offer. Arrive in New Zealand through the jaw-dropping Milford Sound, a panoramic showcase of towering mountains and cascading waterfalls. Dunedin is postcard-perfect with Scottish-influenced Victorian and Edwardian architecture, while charming French-influenced Akaroa is the place for dining, glorious gardens, and vineyard touring.
In Picton, sip your way through the renowned Marlborough wine region. The modern capital of Wellington is filled with sophisticated restaurants, art galleries and museums, while the Art Deco Capital of Napier presents a striking contrast. The best part of these three ports? We stay late in each one!
Gisborne is the place to unwind—home to excellent beaches and legendary wine. Immerse yourself in authentic Maori culture carving and weaving schools in Tauranga. Next in Auckland, take a trip to the top of the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere, the Sky Tower, and get a bird’s-eye view of The City of Sails.
Three more days at sea give you ample time to reflect on your amazing adventure before we conclude in sunny Sydney.
