Experience fantastic natural wonders, city sights and Maori culture on Azamara’s country-intensive cruise around New Zealand

With an overnight stay in Tauranga, you’ll have lots of time to relax in thermal pools and visit the Pikirangi Māori Village.

Highlights

Oban – A pleasant fishing town that packs a lot into a small place. Oban is the perfect place for bird lovers and anyone who wants to spot the elusive kiwi. And as the day winds down, you’ll experience an amazing sunset, and maybe the Aurora Australis (the Southern Lights).

Dunedin – Scottish influence meets distinct Kiwi flair in the port city of Dunedin. Known as the Edinburgh of the South, Dunedin has beautiful sandy beaches, unique wildlife, and is home to the many delicious wines found on the Otago Peninsula.

Akaroa – Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is a paradise for animal lovers—and is the only French settlement in New Zealand. It’s home to some of the world’s rarest dolphins, and a host of other diverse marine life.

Kaikoura – Marine mammal mecca—perfect for seeing dolphins, seals, and orca, humpback, and sperm whales.

Gisborne – Perched on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island, Gisborne is a place of rich history, beautiful beaches, and legendary wines.

Bay of Islands – Exceptional island beauty—144 times over. This stunning group of islands is home to the first permanent British settlement in New Zealand, as well as rich Maori history.
