Why you should go on a New Zealand cruise

For a relatively small nation, New Zealand is well ahead of many other cruise destinations when it comes to beautiful landmarks, delicious food and memorable experiences.

The country’s Maori culture is very evident and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see what it’s all about.

There’s a reason New Zealand’s breathtaking landscape was chosen for the filming of the famous Lord of the Rings movie trilogy (and many other movies, for that matter). It’s truly breathtaking, and you’ll even have the chance to visit the site of Hobbiton with it’s authentic Hobbit pub, The Green Dragon. A must-see for film buffs!

Other popular tourist spots include Akaroa, home to one of the country’s most beautiful harbours; Christchurch, the south island’s largest city; the icy clear waters of Milford Sound; and the capital city Wellington.

Cruise lines currently offering trips around New Zealand include Royal Caribbean Cruises, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Cunard Cruises.
