20 Dusky Sound
21 Dunedin
Dunedin
Located on the Otago Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand, the bustling city of Dunedin has strong links to Scotland in terms of history and architecture -- so much so that its name means "Edinburgh" in Scottish Gaelic. This port city is becoming quite popular with cruise-ship passengers, thanks to a compact city center, interesting museums and galleries, chocolate-focused Cadbury World, fresh seafood at a variety of restaurants and several interesting shore excursion options.
22 Akaroa
23 Wellington
Wellington
New Zealand’s capital and cruise port Wellington, is blessed with a wonderful setting, overlooking a glittering harbour filled with bobbing sailing boats. Behind the gleaming modern skyscrapers of its centre, you will find the city’s history well preserved in some outstanding old buildings – notably the old Government Building, built in 1876, which is the second-largest wooden building in the world.

The Bay, with its subtropical climate and pristine natural environment, has an abundance of marine life, including the big marlin, whales, penguins, dolphins, gannets and many other species. And although it’s an aquatic playground for adventure activities and escapist relaxation, much of Northlands extensive coastline remains unspoilt.

Went on this fabulous cruise to New Zealand and Australia with my husband and friends as a celebration for my retirement, 60th birthday and Ruby wedding anniversary. As ever, with Celebrity, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy. The food was great and the buffet always had a huge and varied selection on offer. The entertainment was excellent both in the theatre and around the ship. Ports of call were all fabulous and our excellent captain ensured we were able to visit each scheduled stop. Celebrity is my favourite cruise line and this was no disappointment We have booked with Iglu cruises on several occasions and they have always been helpful do efficient. On this occasion we added a number of additional destinations at the start and end of the cruise. Our Iglu advisors were able to book excellent hotels and organise our flights and transfers for us. All these worked out fantastically. However, whilst trying to communicate with Iglu to organise our flights I found them difficult to contact. I could not get through on the phone for a number of days as they had an answer phone message saying they could not take calls as they were extremely busy. I was concerned, even checked to see if they had gone out of business. Once we were able to get through again on the phone our advisor ensured the whole package was put together and our holiday of a lifetime was brilliant.

Very good holiday overall, hotels at Auckland & Sydney could have been better but in truth for all the time spent in them, they were adequate. Embarkation at Auckland was easy, the best we’ve had. Solstice is showing a few understandable signs of her age but overall is excellent. Celebrity do the whole cruise experience pretty well. Definitely a cruise to do, saw lots & met lots of different & interesting folks.
