Discover the capital of Queensland, Australia’s Sunshine State. Laid-back Brisbane feels like a big country town, but it’s actually Australia’s third-largest city. Cruise from Brisbane, Australia and experience its charm in any season thanks to year-round warm temperatures. Head to South Bank, where you join the locals cooling down in one of the many museums and galleries, or enjoy the sunshine at the man-made Streets Beach. Two of Australia’s beach-going meccas, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast, border Brisbane – take a short drive out and hop on a surfboard or relax in the sun-soaked sand.

Wellington, New Zealand’s capital, sits at the southern tip of the North Island, roughly the middle of the country. According to Maori legend, New Zealand’s two main islands are associated with the god Maui; the South Island is his canoe and the North Island is the fish he caught. Wellington sits in that fish’s mouth. Wellington is New Zealand’s second-biggest city, after Auckland. Despite its smaller size, it has an abundance of cultural attractions like the National Library, National Archives, theaters and excellent museums. The city is also home to the country’s film industry and is nicknamed Wellywood.

Picton, on the northeast corner of New Zealand’s South Island, provides access to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and to New Zealand’s most famous wine region, Marlborough, home to the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc. Known as the sunniest place in the country, this small town of about 3,000 is named for Sir Thomas Picton, who fought at the Battle of Waterloo. The pretty harbour town has several cafes and shops, plus a market when cruise ships are in port. The area is home to five different types of dolphins, orca and rare birds.

Location Napier
In 08:00
Out 17:00

On the eastern side of New Zealand’s North Island sits Napier, in Hawke’s Bay. The entire city was rebuilt in the Art Deco style following an earthquake in 1931, giving Napier the best collection of authentic Art Deco buildings on the planet. Known for its wine, Napier boasts a cafe culture enjoyed year-round thanks to its sunny, Mediterranean-like climate. Nearby you can find the world’s largest colony of gannets – a sleek, white sea bird known for its dramatic plunge-dive fish-catching technique – which can be viewed on a hike or a tractor ride on the beach.

Location Tauranga (Rotorua)
In 10:00
Out 19:00

It’s hobbit enthusiast’s dream come true in Tauranga. This town on the Bay of Plenty, perched on New Zealand’s North Island, is just a short trek from the rolling hills of Waikato — this is where you’ll find Hobbiton, the location that served as the Shire in the uber-popular “Lord of the Rings” movies. But the fantastic findings of Tauranga don’t end there. Cruise to Tauranga and hike to the summit of nearby Mount Maunganui, an extinct volcano that offers panoramic views of the city and the Pacific Ocean below. Or take the one-hour drive to Rotorua, a geothermal fairyland where you can soak in the rejuvenating waters of the natural hot springs.

Location Auckland
In 08:00
Out 18:00

The New Zealand greeting “Kia Ora!” sets the tone for an Auckland adventure. This Maori phrase, used by Kiwis of all ethnic backgrounds to say “hello,” roughly translates to “be well” — and after you’ve enjoyed the outdoor excitement Auckland has to offer, that’s exactly how you’ll feel. With three harbors and 18,000 miles of coastline, New Zealand’s largest city offers all the exploration by land or by sea you could ask for. Climb the Sky Tower for panoramic views of the city and the Twin Harbors. Jump on a New Zealand cruise and head to the Viaduct Basin in Wynward Quarter to sail the harbor or relax with at a seaside brewery. Or kayak out to volcanic Rangitoto Island, where you can hike up ancient lava flows and admire the city from above.

Date 23/03/2023
Location Bay of Islands
In 08:00
Out 17:00

Look up — the Bay of Islands is said to have the world’s second bluest sky after Rio de Janeiro. Located on the northwestern coast of New Zealand’s North Island, the sea here is also a beautiful shade of turquoise, dotted with 144 subtropical islands of the area. Cruise to Bay of Islands and check out Urupukapuka Island, where you can hike through Maori village sites or relax on the white-sand beach. Visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds — this is the site where the treaty that made New Zealand into its own nation was signed. Or head out on a dolphin spotting cruise to see the population of bottlenose dolphins that call these waters home.
