Itinerary for Discover Australia & New Zealand

Day 1 - Fly UK to Auckland

Day 2 - Fly UK to Auckland

Day 3 - Enjoy Auckland

Day 4 - Enjoy Auckland

Day 5 - Embark Celebrity Edge in Auckland

Your official welcome to New Zealand comes by way of a bustling harbor. Step ashore and into a surprisingly cosmopolitan environment. And once you venture inland, even more surprises await, including a total of 48 dormant volcanoes, a lush, leafy urban cityscape filled with beautiful parks, and a number of renowned art galleries.

Day 6 - Tauranga

Known as the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is located at the entrance to one of the largest natural harbors in New Zealand. You can take a ride on a bush jet boat, go white-water rafting on the Rangitaiki River, or dine on the freshest fish and chips you’ll ever taste, served al fresco. If you’re looking for a more exotic counter, travel to the Mount Mauganui Hot Salt Water Pools.

Day 7 - Napier

Arguably one of the prettiest cities in New Zealand, with elegant art deco architecture, captivating beaches and award-wining vineyards.

Day 8 - Picton, NZ

Picton has developed a reputation in recent years. It’s the doorway to New Zealand’s South Island used by locals and international travelers alike to get to the islands and resorts of the Marlborough Sounds, an interconnected stretch of beautiful landscape. The surrounding area is famous for its wineries, so you can enjoy vineyard tours and tastings while stopped on Picton cruises. Picton is a hidden gem for international travelers. Beautiful scenery in the Marlborough Sounds and views of the New Zealand countryside make the area particularly memorable for first-time visitors. On the waterfront, explore Pollard Park for a leisurely stroll, or stop at EcoWorld Aquarium to see rescued and protected species during a tour of the wildlife rehabilitation center. On your New Zealand cruise, you’ll be endlessly surprised by its foodie and café scene, outdoor adventures like hiking and kayaking, and beautiful water and mountain views.

Day 9 - Christchurch

New Zealand's "Garden City," featuring numerous parks and gardens as well as Victorian architecture, avenues and squares.

Day 10 - Dunedin, New Zealand

Dunedin is a city in New Zealand, at the head of Otago Harbour on the South Island’s southeast coast. It's known for its Scottish and Maori heritage, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, and a large student population. Hiking and cycling trails crisscross the dramatic landscape of the adjoining Otago Peninsula, home to colonies of albatross, sea lions and rare yellow-eyed penguins.

Day 11 - Doubtful Sound / Dusky Sound / Milford Sound

As cold mountain water cascades from the cliffs above Doubtful Sound, it creates an unusual phenomenon-a dual-layered marine ecosystem of fresh and saltwater. This serves as a playground for a number of species, including fur seals and two types of penguins - the fiordland crested and blue penguin.

Steep cliffs that have been carved over centuries by dozens of waterfalls surround the largest and most complex of the many fjords along the New Zealand coast, Dusky Sound. It's also a wildlife paradise, with seals and dolphins patrolling the water, and birds like broad billed prions, mottled petrels and sooty shearwaters floating on the overhead thermals.

As we sail into the narrow fjords of the Milford Sound, even your massive ship seems to shrink in comparison to the towering cliffs topped by lush mountain terrain. Situated within Fiordland National Park, this natural wonder is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site and is protected by its natural geography, which makes it a haven for all types of wildlife.

Day 12 - At sea

Day 13 - At sea

Day 14 - Eden

Experience a slice of paradise on an Eden cruise. This tiny town is located along the Sapphire Coast of Australia with a population of just 3,000. Here, you’ll find a scenic stretch of land with nearly 250 miles of waterways and over 150 beaches to discover, each more beautiful than the next. During an Australia cruise, explore Eden’s pristine coast while on a kayak. Hike around its lush national parks, where you’ll find historic landmarks and hundreds of different species of birds. Soak in the laid-back charm and enjoy unbeatable views from this quaint fishing village in New South Wales, where you’ll eat some of the freshest oysters you’ve ever tried.

Day 15 - Sydney, disembark & transfer to hotel / Enjoy Sydney

Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers just about anything—from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium’s underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower.

Day 16 - Enjoy Sydney
