Australia and New Zealand Cruises, Destinations and Cruise Reviews

Cruise Reviews Online

Featured Article
An Australia and New Zealand cruise not provides an awe inspiring array of wildlife, landscapes, and distinctive cultural differences, but also the country provides a sense of comfort to those from North America by similarities in language, national character and style.

To cruise Australia, the most popular embarkation port is Sydney while other cruises depart from Melbourne. Ships also use Auckland’s port to cruise New Zealand and neighboring. Australian cruises can also originate elsewhere and be a part of longer Pacific tours or worldwide itineraries. While several brands reposition ships there during the North American winder (Australian summer), the mild climate makes this cruise destination an attractive venue all year long.

Sydney is home to the famous Sydney Opera House, the 1,000-foot-tall AMP Tower with its two revolving restaurants, and the Fjordland National Park. Cruise Australia for outstanding shopping and markets specializing in wool products and local arts and crafts.

Australia boasts some of the world’s most incredible beaches and best surfing available, plus it’s home to exotic marine life that make their home in the Great Barrier Reef.  Complete a cruise to Australia with an excursion into the “outback” where travelers may catch a glimpse of incredible wildlife including kangaroos, koala bears, wombats and platypus.

The smaller country of New Zealand is comprised of two main islands, South and North Island, along with numerous small islets. New Zealand terrain has unique plants, animals, and natural scenery that include mountain and lakes. A mix of British and Maori ancestry originating in Polynesia is evident in the islands’ culture and art.

Cruise New Zealand to explore the lush green hills and black sand beaches of North Island which is a hub of recreational activities, including world yacht racing. The South Island has been nicknamed the “Switzerland of the South Pacific” because of its mountainous terrain and snow covered glaciers.
