Regent Seven Seas Cruises Returns with Cruises from New Zealand

Posted by Daniel at Fine Travel

Luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises makes a welcome return to the South Pacific for the 2017 New Zealand cruise season with a range of luxury cruise itineraries departing from Auckland and Sydney.

The last Regent Seven Seas ship in New Zealand waters was Seven Seas Mariner and we are equally looking forward to Seven Seas Voyager arriving in January 2017 as part of the "Koalas to Kiwis" itinerary from Sydney to Auckland. 

Seven Seas Voyager

Seven Seas Voyager is an all-suite, all-balcony ship and the second to feature a restaurant operated by Le Cordon Bleu of Paris, following sister ship Seven Seas Mariner. There are four main dining venues, surprising for a ship her size. You will enjoy impeccable service thanks to some of the highest space and service ratios at sea.

Cruises Departing Auckland

Regent Seven Seas has two longer cruise itineraries departing from Auckland in January 2017 taking in New Zealand, Australia and Asia.

Exotic Lands and Vast Oceans ex Auckland to Hong Kong

Exotic Lands and Vast Oceans is a 40 Night cruise sailing from Auckland to Hong Kong with ports of call (the full list is available on the itinerary page) including:

  • Darwin
  • Komodo Island, Indonesia
  • Benoa, Bali, Indonesia
  • Singapore
  • Ho Chi Minh City  
  • Muara, Brunei
  • Boracay, Philippines

One of our particular favourites on this itinerary is Komodo Island. A natural wonder of tropical savanna and scrubland, home to the famed pre-historic Komodo dragon. Komodo National Park is the only place on earth that they can be found in the wild. The island of Komodo itself is about 60 squares miles in area with dramatic landscapes of 2,000 foot craggy mountains, canyons, Savannas and monsoon rain forests in the valleys. Human habitation is therefore limited to only one settlement in Slawi Bay.

New Zealand Splendour ex Auckland to Singapore

New Zealand Splendour is a 25 Night Cruise sailing from Auckland to Singapore with ports of call (the full list is available on the itinerary page) including:

  • Cooktown, Queensland
  • Darwin
  • Komodo Island, Indonesia
  • Benoa, Bali, Indonesia

Calling in to Benoa allows you to experience the simple fishing village that has grown into an upscale destination. Benoa’s charms are most evident in Nusa Dua, one of the most beautiful beaches in already-legendary Bali. In this land of rice terraces, spectacular volcanoes and over 20,000 temples, the main destination is the 17th-century royal temple complex of Pura Taman Ayun in nearby Mengwi, surrounded by a lotus- filled moat, giving it the feel of a garden sanctuary. Highlights include elaborate wood carvings of Balinese deities and tranquil pavilions. Another favorite is the Sunset Temple, Tanah Lot, dramatically perched on a rocky outcrop, making for an ideal photo opportunity. And don’t miss the batik factories for that perfect gift or souvenir.
