New Zealand has been a place that we wanted to visit for quite some time. Advertised as an unhurried corner of the world, where Māori legends, steaming volcanic lakes, penguins and hobbits add to the magical landscape, we decided that a cruise on board Princess Cruises was our way to experience New Zealand for the very first time following our enjoyable Alaska Cruise and Baltic Cruise on board Princess.

If you are planning a cruise trip to New Zealand, here’s our Trip itinerary that will bring you the highlights of this beautiful country.

Links to reviews / posts are will be added when they are completed. Do stay tuned.

  1. […] So yes, once again, we were on a Scoot flight to Sydney (again!). Sydney is no stranger to us, because we’ve been there in May 2013 – not very recent, I know, but the city was still essentially the same. This time though, Sydney would just be a stop-over for us, as we embark on our cruise to beautiful and unique New Zealand via Princess Cruises. […]
