Highlights of this cruise:

Sydney
What's not to love about Sydney? Home to some of the friendliest people, countless museums, galleries, world-class restaurants and of course, the sprawling Outback, Sydney is a true adventure wonderland that no one can resist.

Milford Sound
The Maori believed a divine mason carved Milford Sound. The fjord is a geological wonder of the ice age, where waterfalls cascade over sheer cliffs into the dark waters below and mountains dominated by Mitre Peak reach towards the sky.

Doubtful Sound
You can only experience the grand scenery and tranquility of this magnificent fjord by boat. Doubtful Sound sustains an amazing array of wildlife. In the rainy season, its steep hills are covered with hundreds of waterfalls.

Dunedin
Dunedin proudly celebrates its Scottish heritage but gold-rush fortunes are behind its grand Victorian and Edwardian architecture. From here you can also explore the Otago Peninsula, home to penguin colonies and scenic coastline.

Auckland
Nestled between two harbours and surrounded by volcanic landscapes, New Zealand's largest city is scenic. Auckland also boasts a cool cosmopolitan vibe, with hipster districts, a big Maori population and growing Asian communities.

Tauranga
On the Bay of Plenty, sunny Tauranga has a beautiful harbour, historic sights, a revitalised waterfront and easy access to beautiful beaches, vibrant Maori culture and outdoor adventures in the sea, lakes and volcanic landscapes.
