Day 1: Sydney, Australia

Explore the famed Opera House and drive across the Sydney Harbour Bridge right next door! Sydney is one of the highlights of the world; mixing museums, Michelin Star restaurants, galleries and beautiful beaches. The city is full of wondrous sights so you’ll certainly be kept busy for the day.

Day 2 - 3: At Sea

Your day at sea will allow you to take full advantage of everything the ship has to offer. Seek out hidden treasures and make the most of the facilities onboard. All of the ships activities can be found on the vessels daily newsletter. If relaxation is on your mind then your sea day will allow you to sit back, soak in ship life and watch the world as it floats by you.

Day 4: Milford Sound, New Zealand

Ancestors believed a divine mason created this awe inspiring location. The fjord boasts unbelievable mountain ranges, enforced by Mitre Peak and cascading waterfalls that extend off cliff faces!

Day 4: Fjordland National Park (Cruising)

Explore the stunning glacier-carved fjords of Doubtful and Milford Sounds. You’ll cruise in glass-like waters, enabling beautiful reflections of the towering fjords. Depending on the weather, it may have added theatrics with thick fog blanketing the region at sporadic moments, perfect ambience for some winter cuisine.

Day 5: Dunedin, New Zealand

Embodying a Scottish heritage while shaped by a Victorian and Edwardian influence, you can feel right at home in the heart of this culturally rich city.

Day 6: Christchurch, New Zealand

Christchurch, known for its English heritage, is located on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Flat-bottomed punts glide on the Avon River, which meanders through the city centre. On its banks are cycling paths, the green expanse of Hagley Park and Christchurch Botanic Gardens.

Day 7: Wellington, New Zealand

Explore the charm of one of New Zealand’s most well-known cities, it may be compact but there is an abundance of activities to partake in. Step out of the city to the embrace of green hillsides or venture further to see the countryside and rugged coastline.

Day 8: Napier, New Zealand

Take your pick between fine art or fine wine, hint: both are a win! The quaint town was devastated by an earthquake in 1931 which inspired them to rebuild Art Deco style. The style is evident everywhere you look so bask in your surroundings with a stroll along Marine Parade or escape to the country to discover rolling vineyards.

Day 9: Tauranga (Rotorua), New Zealand

Explore the towering extinct volcano on the island of Tauranga which boasts historic sights, picturesque waterfront views and easy access to pristine beaches, traditional culture and numerous outdoor adventures.

Day 10 - 11: Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland is surrounded by 48 erupted volcanic structures which are spread around the city and present some stunning views. This is also the best spot for the shop-a-holics on-board, spanning from luxury brands to open-air markets. If you’d prefer something involving nature, Auckland also has lush rain forests, coastal trails and sparkling beaches! Day two will involve a stunning winery tour in the region.

Day 12: Bay of Islands, New Zealand

Bay of Islands is the first place in New Zealand to be settled by the Europeans. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as dolphins and other marine life are often spotted in this area! Walk through the forest to visit caves full of glow worms, go kayaking through the mangroves or take a historical tour of Kerikeri and Waitangi.

Day 13 - 14: At Sea

Your day at sea will allow you to take full advantage of everything the ship has to offer. Seek out hidden treasures and make the most of the facilities onboard.
