ITINERARY

Day 1: Australia – Auckland

Arrive at Auckland airport and make your own way to your hotel.

Day 2-3: Auckland Free Days

Surrounded by an urban sprawl of fashionable inner-city suburbs from Newmarket to Devonport and handsome west-coast beaches, you’re never far from the action in Auckland. Dense rainforests, thermal springs, wineries and wildlife reserves are only half an hour from New Zealand’s biggest city.

Over the next two days, explore at your leisure with ample time to take in the local smattering of key sights, principally the Auckland Museum and Art Gallery. Or you may choose to venture further out and visit the Otara Market Island – one of New Zealand’s finest multicultural markets – or Karekare and Piha beaches for a surf in the giant swell.

Day 4: Auckland – Cruise Embarkation (D)

Make your own way to the Auckland Cruise port to begin your Radiance of the Seas Cruise which departs at 6pm tonight. After settling into your luxury cabin, take some time to have a look around the ship before enjoying your first dinner onboard.

Day 5: Bay of Islands (B, L, D)

Imagine lingering shots of azure waters and 150 undeveloped isles, and you might imagine the Bay of Islands. This pretty constellation of islands is host to glorious sights, perfect golden beaches and plenty to do, whether that’s yachting, diving, cruising or big-game fishing!

Day 6: Tauranga (B, L, D)

Set in the heart of the Bay of Plenty region, Tauranga is home to stunning beaches, a great downtown area and sweeping coastlines. It offers easy access to Rotorua, famous for hot spas, bubbling mud pools and lakes fed by geothermal activity. Rotorua is also a great place to learn about Maori culture with the famous Marae (sacred area) and the Maori Church of St Faith’s close by.

Day 7: Napier (B, L, D)

Devastated by an earthquake in 1931, this leading wine-making region was rebuilt in full art deco style and retains all its gatsby-esque splendour today.

With brilliant architecture at every turn and landmarks from the Ocean Spa hot pools, Hawke’s Bay Museum to Marineland and the Nation Aquarium of New Zealand, you won’t want to leave Napier!

Day 8: Wellington (B, L, D)

Your one-stop spot for hip wine bars, a vibrant arts scene and hillsides lanes with picture-perfect views, this Kiwi capital has it all. If you’ve had your fill of city trappings, why not head out into wine country – the Wairapa region* is only 30km from the sea!

Day 9: Akaroa (B, L, D)

Tiny penguins rule the roost in Akaroa. Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, this balmy landscape boasts picturesque scenery and a gentle stroll lifestyle, with low-key activities such as swims with dolphins and access to the Banks Peninsula Track, all readily available.

A bit further afield, why not take a bus to nearby Christchurch for a day of exploration, but be sure to sample the fine fudge and traditional cheeses Akaroa is best known for before the ship departs at 6pm.

Day 10: Dunedin (B, L, D)

You’ll have plenty of free time to journey via vintage train to the Otago Harbour, where seals and penguins sunbathe. Or, you could enjoy the 19th-century splendour of this quasi-European town with a beer before the ship departs Dunedin at 5pm this afternoon.

Day 11: Fjordland (B, L, D)

Formidable mountainscapes, glaciers carved into rugged cliffs and a sea of trees await you in Fjordland over the next three days.

Be humbled by the haunting maze of forested valleys in the Dusky Sound, known to the Maori as a ‘place of silence’. Enjoy the buzz of wildlife at the Doubtful Sound; from the bottlenose dolphins and penguins that frolic in its midst to its collection of rare birds and hundreds of waterfalls in the rainy season. Then, it’s off to the Milford Sound.

The Maori people believe it was a godly mason whose hand-carved this feat of nature and it’s easy to see why. The sheer precision of every slope is unfathomable, each cliff slenderly and loving designed, a silhouette of sheer magnificence.

Day 12-13: At Sea (B, L, D)

Two days at sea gives you the chance to rest, unwind and enjoy the Radiance of the Seas’ first-class facilities.

Soak in a world of relaxation with a dip in the sparkling freshwater pools or a whirling hot tub, and take a stroll in the thriving atrium – a hub of shops reminiscent of the vibrant squares in Europe. Feeling lucky? Perhaps play the high-roller in the Vegas-style Casino Royale.

And after a full day of exciting activities, why not wind down with a soothing session at the ship’s tranquil day spa?

Day 14: Melbourne – Cruise Disembarkation (B)

As the Radiance of the Seas pulls into Melbourne, it’s time to bid farewell to your fellow passengers before disembarking the ship this morning.

Make your own way back home filled with magical memories of your incredible adventure in New Zealand.
