Day Port Due Depart
1-3 Flight departs
3-5 Melbourne Hotel Stay - 3 Nights
6 Melbourne
7-8 At Sea
9 Milford Sound
10 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.
11 Christchurch
Christchurch
Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the country's second-largest urban area. It lies one third of the way down the South Island's east coast, just north of Banks Peninsula which itself, since 2006, lies within the formal limits of Christchurch.
12 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.
13 Napier
14 At Sea
15 Auckland
Auckland
New Zealand’s biggest city and major cruise port, Auckland, sits between the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea, which is how it came to host the America’s Cup twice - in 1999 and 2002 - attracting investment to transform the harbourside into a superb meeting and eating place which all visitors can now appreciate. ]The Viaduct Harbour area now boasts outdoor restaurants ideally placed to view the hundreds of yachts attracted to this icon of sailing success. This ‘City of Sails’ is also home to New Zealand’s impressive National Maritime Museum which charts the nation’s seafaring history.
16 Bay of Islands
Bay of Islands
The Bay of Islands region is New Zealand’s finest maritime park and comprises 144 islands and myriad bays and beaches around the coastline. 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.

First went on this ship in 2016 and was amazed by everything however we did a return trip on the 2 night mini cruise to Zeebrugge. Ship looking worn despite the refit, (see attached photo from Britannia restaurant - the design amuses me!) the buffet restaurant now has an awful layout with very poor food and poor choice. The food in the Britannia restaurant has also gone downhill. The worst part was breakfast on the last day as the buffet was so crammed there were queues so by the time we got to the food there was genuinely only scraps left. Being a mini cruise we weren’t expecting miracles however much worse than expected as the ship was crammed with rowdy people who would have been more suited to a boozy break in Magaluf. It honestly reminded me of a cruise I took on P&O Britannia to Spain. Dress code not enforced in Britannia restaurant as it had been on a recent trip on Queen Mary. Saw a group that I can only assume must have been on a joint stag/hen as all in same fluorescent clothing. All in all this was not a great cruise even the staff not as good as they once were. I was disappointed that Cunard were taking this ship out of the UK for the foreseeable but now I couldn’t care less. Would not go back in a hurry.

The ship itself is amazing and we had a great short mini cruise. The evening meal that you have a sitting time for, was tiny. Each course I’d describe as starter size. The Lido food was a mish mash of everything. Not brilliant to be honest. If you want to buy a Rolex than all the on board shops will keep you happy. The staff are all great. Polite and helpful. The Theatre was great and so was the show. I took motion sickness pills as am not great on ships and wasn’t ill at all. It was ruff on the return journey so the ship doesn’t Pitch about like a ferry. I wouldn’t book this ship again for more than the two night mini cruise.

Ship decor is firmly 1930s style which makes it look old-fashioned and over-ornate. Cabins are roomy & comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space and hangers! There is a firm dress policy, which was off-putting to us, but popular with others who enjoy being told to dress up - or else go elsewhere (the buffet) to eat. Restaurant food emphasis is on silver service, not the quality of the food. Buffet (our main dining option) food was disappointing, often poor, barely warm and badly presented. It compares very poorly with Celebrity cruises (for instances) food-wise. I also got food poisoning from something I ate ... not pleasant. The ship’s medical team went into overdrive, thinking it was norovirus (it wasn’t). Very poor WiFi, satellite TV patchy. The usual activities & entertainments for those seeking such things. The launderettes were, apparently, more popular than the casino! We went on this cruise for the locations visited, and were not let down in this.
