Luxury Cruises from New Zealand

Finding the right cruise line for you can be as specific as finding the right hotel, and hotel room, at your favourite hotel.  There is something about the ship's design, the team onboard, the decor and just the feel of the ship that speaks to you.  For travellers interested in cruises our New Zealand ports presents a catwalk like parade of luxury cruise lines

Regent Seven Seas Cruises 

Regent Seven Seas Cruises is a very welcome luxury visitor to New Zealand shores and is well represented by Seven Seas Mariner; Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Navigator over the next two years.

The ambiance on board is personal, individual, accommodating – “upscale but not uptight.” And all ships share certain distinctions in accommodations, service, dining and amenities that elevate them to the six star category. 


Offering "The Most Inclusive Luxury Cruise Experience" guests can just relax and enjoy.  Regent Seven Seas Mariner offers cruises around New Zealand and the South Pacific (including paradises such as Tahiti).

The first visit by luxury French cruise line Ponant to New Zealand's shores was highly anticipated, resulting in great demand for the New Zealand and South Pacific itineraries. 


Reflecting its heritage, the Ponant onboard experience is modern French luxury - recognizable in the cuisine, onboard styling of the ship, the crew and often your fellow passengers.   

With cruises departing Auckland and taking in Australia before heading further north in the Pacific to cruise French Polynesia and Hawaii, L'Austral is a very impressive addition to the summer cruise season.

Seabourn Cruise Line

Seabourn is a cruise line that wins its guests' loyalty and does not let it go.  Often said to have the highest repeat cruise rate, the arrival of Seabourn ships to New Zealand's harbours will be very pleasing for Seabourn Club members. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated.


Seabourn Cruises' New Zealand itineraries generally take in the east coasts of the North and South Islands before crossing the Tasman to Australia (and then onwards).
