Discover the beauty of New Zealand on a 9 night cruise aboard Radiance of the Seas. New Zealand's coastline is picturesque and the best way to appreciate it is from the deck of your cruise ship.

New Zealand may be close to home—about 2,200 kilometres southeast from Sydney—but that doesn’t make it any less exotic. It’s actually so different from Australia that New Zealand cruises to its major urban centres and beach getaways can be enlightening. The vibe in some ports is quite Polynesian and that makes sense because of the destination’s Maori heritage. It’s thought that East Polynesians first arrived in New Zealand sometime in the 9th century, but the Maori culture did not take hold until 1350 AD. Back then, the Maori called the region Aotearoa. Over the next several hundred years, many other European explorers and seafarers called upon the region, including Britain’s famous Captain James Cook in 1767.

These days though, most people equate the “Land of the Long White Cloud” with movies like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which was famously filmed there. The scenery can be quite otherworldly and is certainly breathtaking, from soft sand beaches and green pastures to majestic mountains and volcanoes to lush forests and glacial fjords, New Zealand’s got it all. It’s the type of place where you can enjoy hiking and bird watching in the vast open spaces or you can head to the cities like Auckland and Wellington to wine and dine. The choice is yours and you can experience both on many New Zealand cruises.
