New Zealand cruises typically are combined with cruises to Australia. Auckland, the “City of Sails,” has consistently been rated one of the best places to tour while on a New Zealand cruise, featuring America’s Cup Village, the War Memorial, Queen Street and the Harbour Bridge. A panoramic sightseeing tour of Wellington includes the Beehive, New Zealand’s Parliament, and historic St. Paul’s Church. The Franz Josef region of Christchurch is where glaciers live in close proximity to temperature climates. Travel to historic Arrowtown, a gold rush town set on the picturesque Arrow River. Queenstown offers excellent shopping and dining.
