Sydney to New Zealand Cruises: Cruising across the Ditch
Cruises to New Zealand
Popular itineraries from Sydney include those travelling south and around Kiwi land. P&O Australia, Celebrity and Holland America are some of the big-ship lines that offer such cruises as well as luxury lines like Regent Seven Seas and Seabourn. These cruises sometimes also include other Australian port stops and Princess offers an itinerary that departs Sydney and circumnavigates both Australia and New Zealand. They really are the perfect way to experience some of the best sights and ports that New Zealand and Australia have to offer. From quaint towns to busy cities, there’s something for everyone as they make their way across The Ditch.
For the residents of Sydney, cruising holidays are extremely accessible. For those who travel from other parts of the country or the world, a cruise from Sydney is the perfect opportunity to spend a few extra days in the city before or after your trip. The iconic Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the many gorgeous beaches are some of the main attractions. You can also do some shopping and mingle with the friendly locals as you explore this vibrant city.
Crossing the Ditch
There are also some “Quick Getaway” cruise holidays with P&O Australia which travel from Sydney to Auckland and from Auckland to Sydney. These cruises are ideal for that quick holiday or for those who are just getting acquainted with cruise holidays. The duration of these cruises is four nights and, if you want a round trip, there are many cruises offered by major cruise lines that circle New Zealand before making their way back to Sydney. If you do have the time, exploring New Zealand’s diverse coastline is really worthwhile. Down south you will have the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular sights and landscapes that are often compared to those of Alaska. This really is scenic cruising at its best!
