Ports

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

Country - New Zealand
Distance from port to City - 0kms
Distance from port to Airport - 21kms
Currency - New Zealand Dollars (NZD)

Places of Interest
Auckland War Memorial, Sky Tower, Auckland Regional Botanical Gardens

Tauranga

Rotorua (some miles inland from the port of Tauranga) is the center of New Zealand's thermal area on the North Island. Spectacular phenomena such as geysers, boiling mud, hot pools, hot springs, and spouts of gushing steam can be seen. Lake Rotorua's waters are icy, yet the sandy shores are too warm for bare feet to walk upon. Rotorua is also the center of Maori life and culture, with a model village, displays of carving, and concerts of Maori music and singing. Tauranga, meaning "shelter" (named by Capt. Cook the Bay of Plenty), with its population of 48,000, is now a modern thriving city supported by the export of lumber and farming. This popular holiday resort is a paradise for deep-sea fishermen, and close to the golden sands of Ohope Beach for surfing and swimming.

Dunedin

The Gaelic word for Edinburgh is Dunedin and, not surprisingly, this one retains a number of close links with the Scottish capital. Not only are many of the street names the same, other reminders include the railroad station, University Clock Tower and Gothic Revival Dominican Priory – all built in similar styles. Sightseeing options include Lanarch Castle, a stroll through the Botanic Gardens, a walk up Baldwin Street – the steepest in the world – and a ride on the vintage train through Taieri Gorge.

Hobart

Hobart is Australia's second oldest city and state capital of Tasmania. Home to more than 90 National Trust buildings, Hobart combines colonial character with a metropolitan lifestyle. It is the gateway to Tasmania's other scenic attractions and a range of shore activities lets you experience the best of both worlds.

Explore the historic core at the colonial village of Battery Point, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, as well as Theatre Royal, the country's oldest theater. There's also wine-tasting and pub-hopping to enjoy.

Sydney - Australia

Sydney is Australia's largest city, which is the number one tourist destination in the country. It offers a multitude of sights such as the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest centre – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains.

Crystal Symphony

In October 2017, the 50,000-ton Crystal Symphony will emerge from her longest-ever makeover, a multi-million-dollar Evolution of Crystal Luxury featuring spacious new suites and penthouses, new and expanded dining options with open seating, and more state-of-the-art technologies including free, unlimited Wi-Fi. The transformation reduces the guest capacity to just 848, thereby increasing service and space ratios to be among the industry’s loftiest.
