Have you ever been trapped inside a beautiful dream? Sitting on top of perfectly-manicured mountains, you cast your gaze upon a lake of the clearest blue and take in the scent of pure air; sounds too good to be true, huh?

Until you visit the gorgeous country of New Zealand, these visions will be nothing but a dream. A nation celebrating postcard-worthy sceneries, adrenalin-fuelled activities and a pulsating multicultural community, a vacation to Aotearoa will transform all your senses.

We have selected three stunning Kiwi cruises for you to embark on; so it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy this delicately crafted utopia.

14 Night Cruise on Sea Princess with Princess Cruises

If you’re looking to cruise around the North and South Island of New Zealand, jump aboard the Sea Princess on a 14 night cruise from Brisbane. Your first port visit will be the magnetic City of Sails, Auckland. Harbouring a unique combination of urban and contemporary life, Auckland presents vacationers with incredible shopping and dining experiences, as well as the significant Maori sites of Mt. Eden and One Tree Hill. After your quick stop to the North Island, you’ll be setting sail to the windy capital of Wellington and the charismatic city of Dunedin. If a swimming pool, casino, art gallery and numerous restaurants appeal to you, the Sea Princess is the cruise ship for you.

Situated on the southern coast of Aotearoa is the sublime fjord of Dusky Sound. Kayaking in this natural treasure, witness seals sunbaking and dolphins swimming.
