15-Night New Zealand Intensive Voyage
Azamara Journey | Departing: February 23, 2020
Experience the fantastic natural wonders, city sights, and Maori culture on Azamara’s country-intensive cruise to New Zealand. Set sail from sensational Sydney Harbour, then enjoy two days at sea to pamper yourself in Sanctum Spa, be entertained in our onboard lounge and casino, and take in some informative programs on the Land of the Long White Cloud/Middle Earth.
And what a way to start your kiwi adventures: We arrive in New Zealand through the jaw-dropping Milford Sound, where we’ll cruise from here to Doubtful Sound, and on to the marine and wildlife sights of Stewart Island. Explore the Scottish-influenced Victorian and Edwardian structures of Dunedin and the Colonial architecture (with a French flair) of Akaroa. And in Kaikoura, make sure your cameras and smartphones are at the ready for some of the best whale watching in the world.
Sip your way through the renowned Marlborough wine region, tour the excellent museums of Wellington, discover Napier (the Art Deco Capital of New Zealand), and immerse yourself in the rich history, beautiful beaches, and legendary wines of Gisborne. With an overnight stay in Tauranga, you’ll have lots of time to relax in thermal pools and visit the Pikirangi Māori Village. One last must-do is rafting Bay of Islands’ Waitomo Caves, before the journey ends in Auckland.
