New Zealand Cruise: 13 nights in March 2012.

New Zealand, 13 - nights
Set Sail  from Melbourne in March on a 13 night cruise to the beautiful New Zealand.  Begin the cruise with four days at sea before arriving in the first port of Auckland.  Shop along the picturesque waterfront of this ever-expanding city, home to one-third of the country's population or explore the many extinct volcano peaks. Other stops include the beach town of Tauranga, the fertile region of Napier and the country's capital, Wellington. A bustling city with many museums, gardens and Victorian architecture. Spend the next day in Akaroa, a quaint, colonial village who's craft stores and cafes can easily be explored on foot. The harbour is ringed with picturesque sheltered  bays and home to pods of Hectors dolphins.  Uncover the country's Scottish heritage at the next stop of Dunedin and spend your final day in New Zealand in the breathtaking Fiordland National Park. These lush green grasslands, snowcapped mountains and roaring rivers were, thousands of years ago, carved out by glaciers. 
The cruise concludes back in Melbourne on Wednesday 14th March, 2012.
