  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-AKL-icon.jpgAuckland,New Zealand
  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-BYO-icon.jpgBay of Islands,New Zealand –  Named by the intrepid Captain Cook in 1769, the Bay of Islands region is comprised of some 150 isles and a handful of coastal towns that beckon with outdoor adventures like game fishing, yachting, kayaking and more.
     /media/images/destinations/ports/port-TRG-icon.jpgTauranga,New Zealand – On the Bay of Plenty, sunny Tauranga has a beautiful harbor, historic sights, a revitalized waterfront and easy access to beautiful beaches, vibrant Maori culture, and outdoor adventures in the sea, lakes, and volcanic landscapes.

    /media/images/destinations/ports/port-WLG-icon.jpgWellington,New Zealand – Wellington embraces its reputation as a cool “little” capital. Downtown is compact but there’s no shortage of big-city culture. The charm extends to the surrounding green hillsides while countryside and rugged coast are within easy reach.

    /media/images/destinations/ports/port-AKA-icon.jpgAkaroa,New Zealand – Set on a beautiful harbor, Akaroa is a quaint resort town with unique French heritage. It’s your gateway to Christchurch and amazing South Island nature, from the volcanic Banks Peninsula to the mountains of the Southern Alps.  A colony of Little Penguins? Visit Flea Bay for the largest on mainland New Zealand.

    /media/images/destinations/ports/port-DUD-icon.jpgDunedin,New Zealand – Dunedin proudly celebrates its Scottish heritage but gold-rush fortunes are behind its grand Victorian and Edwardian architecture. From here you can also explore the Otago Peninsula, home to penguin colonies and scenic coastline. Travel by vintage train car along the eastern shores of Otago Harbor or enjoy wine tasting at the Gibbston Valley Winery.

  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-DKY-icon.jpgDusky Sound – Part of New Zealand’s Fiorland National Park, Dusky Sound was long the site of Maori camps but few permanent settlements. Captain Cook spent five weeks exploring the dramatic coastline that edges the mountainous wilderness. The majestic Resolution Island makes for spectacular sightseeing. The abundance of sunbathing seals on Seal Rock will have you reaching for your camera.
  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-DBS-icon.jpgDoubtful Sound -You can only experience the grand scenery and tranquility of this magnificent fjord by boat. Doubtful Sound sustains an amazing array of wildlife. In the rainy season, its steep hills are covered with hundreds of waterfalls. Explore cascading waterfalls, looming mountains and rare marine life. It is one of the most beautifully protected bodies of water.
  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-MFN-icon.jpgMilford Sound (Cruising) – The Maori believed a divine mason carved Milford Sound. The fjord is a geological wonder of the ice age, where waterfalls cascade over sheer cliffs into the dark waters below and mountains dominated by Mitre Peak reach toward the sky.

    /media/images/destinations/ports/port-MEL-icon.jpgMelbourne,Australia – Multicultural Melbourne retains its Victorian-era elegance even as new districts spring up around historic harbor. It has a dynamic, eclectic urban scene that includes the arts and sports as well as exciting dining and great shopping. With over 350 species of animals, you can visit the whole world in about three hours.

    /media/images/destinations/ports/port-PKL-icon.jpgWollongong (Port Kembla),Australia – “The Gong” is a beautiful seaside city that lies on the narrow strip between the Tasman Sea and Illawarra Escarpment. Marvel at the Nan Tien Temple, one of the largest Buddhists temples in the southern hemisphere. Go snorkeling in Wattamolla Beach and see the iconic Wollongong lighthouse.

  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-NTL-icon.jpgNewcastle,Australia – Newcastle is a quirky mix of maritime heritage, historic architecture and surf culture, plus an arts community and expanding culinary scene. It is also a gateway to the wineries of the Hunter Valley and deep blue bays of Port Stephens. A 5km coastal walk that starts at Nobbys and finishes at Merewether Beach. A great place to simply kick back and enjoy the sights, weather and other activities.
  • /media/images/destinations/ports/port-SYD-icon.jpgSydney,Australia – What’s not to love about Sydney? Home to some of the friendliest people, countless museums, galleries, world-class restaurants, and of course, the sprawling Outback, Sydney is a true adventure wonderland that no one can resist. Watch a show or just admire this architectural icon from the water or harbor. Choose from 34 beaches including the golden sand and crystal waters of Bondi or Bronte.
