Azamara Journey
Sailing: January 04, 2022

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

Natural wonder, native culture, and new immersive experiences are yours to discover as we sail from Australia around New Zealand. Depart from Melbourne—Australia’s cultural capital—to arrive in Sydney for a day enjoying fresh air and unique flavors, while meeting locals who know a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Eden is like a piece of heaven on Earth, where golden beaches, crystal blue waters, and lush green forests await. Keep an eye out for humpback whales, and get your appetite ready for blue mussels fresh from the wharf. 

Then you’ve got two sailing days to experience all your boutique hotel at sea has to offer. Indulge in a treatment at The Sanctum Spa, dine at our specialty restaurants, and take in exciting live shows.

We arrive in New Zealand through the jaw-dropping Milford Sound, a panoramic showcase of towering mountains and cascading waterfalls. Over the next few days, you'll get to experience the Scottish-influenced Victorian and Edwardian structures of Dunedin, the Colonial architecture (with a French flair) of Akaroa, and breathtaking views of Wellington from the Kelburn cable car en route to the artist’s haven of Nelson where you can shop for one-of-a-kind pieces.

If you like wine, you’ll love Picton. Located close to the legendary Marlborough wine region, taste this area's renowned terroir with each sip. Then it's on to Napier, where you’ll swear you’ve stepped back in time to the Roaring Twenties with its Art Deco style. With an overnight stay Tauranga, you’ll have lots of time to relax in thermal pools and learn about the Māori in nearby Bay of Islands before ending your journey in Auckland. If you’re not ready to leave just yet, set out on one of our immersive Land Programs.
