Azamara Journey
Sailing: March 09, 2020

Australia & New Zealand

Begin your journey in Auckland, where you can enjoy an active day (surfing or horseback riding) or take it easy with a harbor cruise. Next up is Gisbourne, home to excellent beaches, legendary wine, and authentic Māori culture. In Napier, with its Art Deco style, you’ll swear you’ve stepped back in time to the Roaring Twenties. Cruise to Wellington and enjoy breathtaking views from the Kelburn cable car.

If you like wine, you’ll love Picton, located close to the legendary Marlborough wine region. Akaroa is next: an animal lover’s dream, with dolphins, penguins, and fur seals. Known as the City of Literature, Dunedin is a cultural capital of New Zealand with a distinct Scottish feel. Cruise Milford Sound, one of New Zealand’s most spectacular natural attractions, flanked by steep cliffs and dense rainforests.

Spend two nights at sea enjoying everything Azamara Journey® has to offer: unwind in the spa, sample gourmet flavors from around the globe, or try your luck in the casino. Dock in Hobart, Tasmania, full of old-world charm and surrounded by natural beauty. Another night at sea will bring you to Melbourne, where you’ll have two days to explore the country’s cultural capital. Kick back and relax (or kick up your heels) during a final night at sea before ending your journey in sunny, vibrant Sydney.

    Perched on the East Coast of New Zealand’s North Island, Gisborne is a place of rich history, beautiful beaches, and legendary wines. It’s also a city of firsts. It’s where the first Māori migratory canoes landed, where British explorer Captain James Cook first came in 1769, and, since it’s also the most easterly point in the world, it is the first city in the world to see the sun rise each day.
