What you can expect
Take an extra day to get to know Auckland before you set sail on your cruise with this overnight stay in New Zealand's biggest city. This combination of spectacular views, from the city's waterfront to the iconic Sky Tower, gives you a chance to explore a bit on land before you take to sea.
Day 1: Airport Pick-up & Free Time in Auckland - Meet your guide for a ride that carries you from Auckland International Airport to your hotel in the heart of the city. Once you're settled in, you can spend the rest of the day at your leisure, so check out the sights of the central business district or just rest up for the adventure ahead.
Day 2: City Tour, Sky Tower & Cruise Terminal Transfer Once you set out from your hotel, your guide takes you on a 3-hour tour to some of the best attractions in the city. Get an up-close look at the dormant volcanoes that frame the city, the gleaming beaches along the coast, and landmarks from the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Tamaki Waterfront to Paratai Drive and the War Memorial Museum.
Follow up with a visit to the observation deck at Auckland's Sky Tower, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere. Here, you can get a spectacular 360-degree view across the city before you transfer out to your waiting cruise ship to begin your voyage.
