Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium's underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower. Melbourne Europeans and Asians each have put their stamp on this amazing city and turned Melbourne into a cultural melting pot of Greek, Chinese, Italian, English and Irish, and host to major international events.
From the Old World architecture and a cricket field at the center of the city, to the abundance of Australia's unusual animals found at the Melbourne Zoo, this city never ceases to amaze. Milford Sound As we sail into the narrow fjords of the Milford Sound, even your massive ship seems to shrink in comparison to the towering cliffs topped by lush mountain terrain. Situated within Fiordland National Park, this natural wonder is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site and is protected by its natural geography, which makes it a haven for all types of wildlife.
Dunedin Were it not for the absence of the Scottish brogue, you might think you'd landed in Edinburgh. Both the scenery and the architecture borrow heavily from Scotland. You can even shop for kilts or dig into a piece of fresh haggis. Dunedin is also home to New Zealand's only castle, a 15-year construction endeavor complete with the only staircase of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and magnificent woodwork.
Christchurch The moment you step onshore, you'll understand why locals long ago tabbed this the "Garden City." Lush gardens and parks punctuate well-spaced avenues and squares, all adorned with Victorian architecture. Of particular note is the 57-acre Christchurch Botanic Gardens, which features wide-open lawns, some of New Zealand's oldest trees, and a thriving population of ducks. At the center of town is Christchurch Cathedral, a stunning example of Gothic Revival architecture.
Wellington From the new to the old, Wellington offers a bit of everything. Locals are particularly proud of the National Museum of New Zealand- Te Papa Tongarewa. Loosely translated as "our place" from the native Maori tongue, the museum is one of the worlds largest and most progressive. A great way to explore the city is on the restored cable cars, which traverse the shopping district. And if you want to experience it all from above, take in the panoramic views from Mount Victoria.
Tauranga Known as the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is located at the entrance to one of the largest natural harbors in New Zealand. You can take a ride on a bush jet boat, go white-water rafting on the Rangitaiki River, or dine on the freshest fish and chips you'll ever taste, served al fresco. If you're looking for a more exotic counter, travel to the Mount Mauganui Hot Salt Water Pools. Auckland Step ashore at this bustling harbor and into a surprisingly cosmopolitan environment.
And once you venture inland, even more surprises await, including a total of 48 dormant volcanoes, a lush, leafy urban cityscape filled with beautiful parks, and a number of renowned art galleries. Which stateroom is right for you? Do you want to be on one of the higher decks with a balcony, where you can sit and have breakfast? We recommend the Sky Suite or Aqua Class. Do you plan on spending as little time as possible in your stateroom? Perhaps one with a picture window is the right choice for you.
In other words, take your time, and make sure you pick the perfect stateroom for your needs.
