Cruising to New Zealand is a well-established tradition. When the first settlers came here, it was by boat and even up to the 1960’s it was the only way to arrive in this country. Cruises to New Zealand today are, happily, a much more comfortable and luxurious experience.
The most popular places for boarding a cruise to New Zealand are Australia and the South Pacific. Adventure cruises bound for Antarctica also pass through here, as well as round-the-world cruises.
New Zealand is blessed with a compact land mass, which means that each distinct region is within overnight sailing of each other. Whether you are after scenic beauty, interacting with endangered wildlife, learning about Māori culture, or indulging in gourmet goodness, cruising around New Zealand offers varied experiences and life-changing moments.
