Australia cruises showcase rainforests in the north and stunning beaches and cosmopolitan cities in the south, which give way to a vast interior and huge ranches. New Zealand boasts towering mountains and verdant valleys, washed by tumbling waterfalls. Certain cruises extend out into the sparkling Pacific to reveal idyllic South Seas islands.
There’s a sense of mystique on a cruise to Australasia. It may stem from the impossibly beautiful Polynesian lagoons, watching Fiji’s firewalkers or meeting the tribes of Papua New Guinea. It could be seeing Australia’s weird and wonderful wildlife up close, including koalas, kangaroos and crocodiles, or even snorkelling at the majestic Great Barrier Reef. From our New Zealand cruises, it may be a performance of the Maori haka, ascending Auckland’s Sky Tower or sailing into breathtaking fjords that most define your visit.
