New Zealand Cruises

Do you want to embark on an adventure of a lifetime, but you don’t want to travel too far from home? Consider a New Zealand cruise to discover the spectacular beauty and diversity of the country just a stone’s throw away from home.

Floating in the South Pacific roughly 2,000 kilometres away from the southeastern coast of Australia, New Zealand is located in one of the earth’s most remote regions. Two main islands make up the archipelago nation: the volcanic North Island, officially named Te Ika-a-Māui, and the mountainous South Island, or Te Waipounamu.

With cruises regularly departing from ports around Australia, including Sydney and Melbourne, setting sail for the spectacular scenery of our neighbours to the southeast has never been easier or more convenient! Many leading cruise lines, including budget cruise lines like P&O Australia and Royal Caribbean or more luxury liners like Princess Cruises and Celebrity Cruises, sail to New Zealand from Australia. That way, you can sail in complete comfort and style while you experience the natural wonders of New Zealand for yourself!

Highlights of New Zealand


Rugged mountains, magical fjords, lush forests, sparkling lakes, and rolling hills cover that pristine paradise that is New Zealand. Whether you’re an outdoorsy type or more of a culture nerd, this green country has something for everyone. With trails zigzagging through the country, opportunities to go hiking are practically unbounded. Grab your paddle and hop in a canoe. Zip through the wilderness on a mountain bike. Unwind and go for a long walk one of the many beaches. Much like the locals, the varying landscapes and rich cultures of the North and South Islands are diverse as well as endearing.

There’s far more to New Zealand than just breathtaking scenery; there are also plenty of activities to try! Why not give sea kayaking or fishing a go in Picton on the South Island? Take a trip to the capital and ride in a cable car up the mountain in Wellington. For you film buffs, you can also visit some of the filming sites from The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Fiordland National Park should be on everyone’s bucket list! As an iconic destination in New Zealand, the largest national park in the country is definitely on most cruise itineraries sailing to New Zealand.

Some truly awe-inspiring sights await you. On New Zealand’s South Island, you can venture to the pristine Milford Sound. The beautiful Bay of Plenty will have you mesmerised. And don’t forget about the stunning bays of Akaroa. It’s no wonder why so many travellers choose to return year after year.

No matter which New Zealand sights you’d like to take in or what activities you want to try out, Cruise1st has plenty of itineraries for you to choose from. What are you waiting for? Our exclusive special offers won’t be around forever – so start your search today!

One with the Kiwis


New Zealand cruises have got it all: adrenaline-pumping land tours, lush scenery, thrilling itineraries, and sumptuous ports of call. Cruise1st offers cruise packages that include return flights and accommodations, so if you book with us, you will have more time to enjoy.

The exotic wildlife, stretching forest, towering mountains, crystal lakes, pristine beaches, and magnificent fjords: New Zealand offers everything you need for an unforgettable holiday. A handful of buzzing cities, indigenous culture, mouthwatering cuisine, and gorgeous nature scenes are waiting for you!

The fresh seafood of the South Pacific and influences from the Pacific Islands largely inspire the mouth-watering cuisine of New Zealand. The land’s original settlers, the Māori people, still have a huge influence on modern-day New Zealand. Māori culture and Kiwi life are one and the same. The world-renowned haka of the All Blacks, for example, originated as a Māori war dance. The beautiful art of ta moko, or Māori tattooing, can be seen of the faces of the Māori people. New Zealand will impress any visitors who love the great outdoors, indigenous cultures, and untamed wildlife.

Additionally, unlike here at home, you will almost never encounter venomous snakes or bugs in New Zealous, so you can kick back and relax on your cruise to New Zealand.

Cross the ditch and explore diverse landscapes, glistening glaciers, and geothermal phenomena! New Zealand cruises will invite you to a world of natural wonders. Because there’s so much to do and see, it’s best that you make time for plenty of shore excursions.

Check out our hottest New Zealand cruise deals! If you need some more information or require assistance booking your dream cruise to New Zealand, give our Australia-based cruise experts a call.
