per stateroom
31 August 2022

What to expect

Escape to this unhurried corner of the world, where Maori legends, steaming volcanic lakes, penguins and hobbits add to the magical landscape. Witness the unparalleled beauty of what locals call “Godzone” (God’s own country) on a hike into Tauranga’s Wai-O-Tapu thermal valley and be rewarded with spectacular mud pools, geysers and rainbow-colored lakes. And just outside Wellington, you’ll experience a world teeming with Maori myths, rugged coasts and adorable seals. Be awestruck by the beauty of Fiordland National Park, named one of the 7 Cruise Wonders of the World by Condé Nast Traveller.
