Get the full experience...

Auckland is New Zealand’s most populous city and, with its strong Polynesian traditions and bustling centre, is a great place to begin your holiday. Enjoy a two-night hotel stay during which you’ll have time to explore its scenic beaches, lively shopping precincts and surrounding natural beauty. 

You’ll then embark Norwegian Spirit for a cruise around some of the country’s favourite coastal cities. On board you’ll discover a wealth of things to do on your days at sea, from dazzling evening entertainment to diverse dining and an extensive treatment menu in the spa.

Arriving first at Tauranga, you’ll be enchanted by one of the country’s most scenic cities. Featured in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film series, Tauranga is now home to a film set that runs daily tours for fans. Or you could head for sites of astounding natural beauty like Mount Maunganui.

At Napier you’ll find eye-catching Art Deco buildings and some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed wineries, while the pint-sized capital Wellington punches well above its weight with a vibrant arts scene and culinary gems to discover.

Reaching the South Island, you’ll then stop at Akoroa, a former French settlement and harbour town that’s surrounded by deep-green hills. After Dunedin, where its Scottish legacy can be found in everything from tartan souvenirs in the shops to a mock castle, you’ll head for the Fjordland National Park. Here you’ll visit a trio of spectacular sounds: Milford, Doubtful and Dusky. This region is a Lost World paradise of steep, forested mountains veined with waterfalls and stunning marine wildlife.

Reaching the Australian coast, you’ll then visit Melbourne, state capital of Victoria. Known for a flourishing arts scene, passion for sport and some of Australia’s best-loved architecture, it’s bursting with things to do and see.

Burnie on the northern Tasmanian coast is wonderful place to sample artisanal crafts and food products before you make your penultimate stop in the laidback town of Eden, a renowned whale-watching hotspot. Finally, you’ll disembark in Sydney.
