About Australia and New Zealand Cruises

Cruise between two countries famed for spectacular natural beauty, artistic cities and thrilling shore activities.

Imagine your dream cruise to Australia and New Zealand. It probably involves exploring the Great Barrier Reef, sipping coffee in Wellington and meeting a koala bear. All of these dreams can become reality on an Australia and New Zealand cruise. Enjoy other unexpected sights and thrills along the way. Drift along breathtaking fjords in New Zealand or visit UNESCO-listed sites on an Australia cruise that is sure to take in a dazzling and diverse itinerary.

Multiple choices are available to anyone planning an Australia and New Zealand cruise. First, select your ship, which could be a family-friendly craft with myriad activities for children or a smaller vessel for more intimate adventures. Then choose an itinerary, which could cover either nation individually or include both for maximum variety in your Australia and New Zealand cruise vacation.

The two nations are very different, yet both promise thrills, sightseeing and natural beauty to any cruise liner pulling into port. In Australia, experience underwater wonderlands when you dock at Cairns or spend the day exploring the chic city center of Sydney. Book in advance for a sought-after place on a circumnavigation Australia cruise, which circles around the whole island continent.

New Zealand cruises aren’t yet as popular as Australia cruises but they offer intoxicating mixtures of dramatic mountains and trendy, modern cities. Shore excursions could vary from trips to vineyards outside Auckland or swimming with dolphins near the Bay of Islands. Seek out itineraries that take you through Fiordland, where the cliffs, forests and waterfalls rival the fjords of Scandinavia. Circumnavigation cruises of New Zealand are also available with some operators.

Itineraries for both New Zealand and Australia cruises vary in length and number of ports. The shortest journeys are one-way and one-country, but to enjoy a round-trip or experience the beauty of both nations, plan for a longer Australia and New Zealand cruise vacation. October to April are the busiest months for Southern Hemisphere cruises, although Australia cruise lines operate throughout the year. The best time to cruise to New Zealand is during its summer months between December and February.
