Itinerary for Flavours of 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 Eclipse 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 - Wellington

From the new to the old, Wellington offers a bit of everything. Locals are particularly proud of the National Museum of New Zealand - Te Papa Tongarewa. Loosely translated as "our place" from the native Maori tongue, the museum is one of the world’s largest and most progressive. A great way to explore the city is on the restored cable cars, which traverse the shopping district. And if you want to experience it all from above, take in the panoramic views from Mount Victoria.

Day 10 - Christchurch

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

Day 11 - At sea

Day 12 - Dunedin, New Zealand

Day 13 - Dusky Sound / Doubtful Sound / Milford Sound

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 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.

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 14 - At sea

Day 15 - At sea

Day 16 - Newcastle, NSW, AU

Settled in 1801 as a colony for convicts sentenced to dig for coal, the area’s celebration of the surfing lifestyle and a no worries attitude make it one of the most laid-back places in the developed world. A diversity of natural attractions offers many opportunities for exploration. You can also sip cocktails at a harborside restaurant, take in some live music at a local pub, follow a bushwalk trail at Blackbutt Reserve to see koalas, kangaroos, wombats and native birds.

Day 17 - Sydney / 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 18 - At sea

Day 19 - Melbourne

Europeans and Asians each have put their stamp on this amazing city and turned Melbourne into a cultural melting pot of Greek, Chinese, Italian, English and Irish, and host to major international events. From the Old World architecture and a cricket field at the center of the city, to the abundance of Australia’s unusual animals found at the Melbourne Zoo, this city never ceases to amaze.

Day 20 - At sea

Day 21 - Adelaide

Adelaide’s wide thoroughfares and graceful cosmopolitan style give way to a variety of activities that lie just outside the city limits. Sample wines from the more than 200 local vineyards that take advantage of the cool inland climate of the Adelaide Hills, or visit one of several wildlife sanctuaries. You can also visit Cleland Wildlife Park to wander amongst kangaroos, wallabies and emus, or tour the Warrawong Sanctuary to spot exotically named species like brush-tailed bettongs or bilbies.

Day 23 - At sea

Day 24 - Hobart

Docking in Hobart gives you immediate access to Mount Wellington and its incredibly beautiful surroundings. From there you can look out over the busy harbor, which plays host to yachts from all over the world. The Salamanca Arts Centre also puts the region’s incredible artwork on display, including some stunning Aboriginal pieces. Or, if you’re looking for something less formal, just wander about the streets listening to street buskers, or stop into a pub and sample local wines.

Day 25 - At sea

Day 26 - Sydney, disembark & transfer to airport / Fly Sydney to UK

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.
