12 Night Cruise sailing from Christchurch to Auckland aboard Crystal Endeavor.

A true immersion into the New Zealand coastlines and locales that have called to pioneering explorers for centuries, this voyage charts a course through the region’s history and modern natural wonders.

Whether it be by hiking, kayaking, biking, swimming, or on any of the yacht’s expedition toys, there are nearly as many ways to explore with Crystal Endeavor™ as there are wonders to discover. Highlights include Fiordland National Park and its glacier-carved fjords, craggy mountain peaks and powerful waterfalls, as well as Abel Tasman National Park.

Highlights of this cruise:

Christchurch (Lyttelton), New Zealand
The historic port of Lyttelton serves as the gateway to Christchurch, the largest city on New Zealand’s South Island. Traditionally considered the most English of New Zealand’s cities, there is much to explore in vibrant Christchurch, from its neo-Gothic stone buildings and beautiful botanical gardens, to its picturesque Avon River lined by graceful willows. Further afar, the Canterbury Plains, snow-capped Southern Alps and numerous rivers beckon with their enchanting beauty and wildlife.

Stewart Island, New Zealand
Stewart Island sits at the southern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, just south of the Foveaux Strait. This mostly undiscovered eco-tourism gem is home to golden beaches, sparkling bays and lushly forested hills, providing the perfect setting for nature hikes and wildlife sightings. Across from Golden Bay sits Ulva Island, an unspoiled haven for birds — and bird watchers — where colorful parakeets and parrots fly about the forest canopy. Kiwis, wekas, saddlebacks and yellowheads also call this sanctuary home.

Akaroa, New Zealand
The charming village of Akaroa sits on New Zealand’s South Island, nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano along the southern side of the Banks Peninsula. Its beautiful bays and harbor are home to the rarest and smallest marine dolphin—the Hector’s dolphin—as well as fur seals, little blue penguins, and an array of birds and exotic plants. From kayaking, hiking, fishing, sailing, and walking tours to art galleries, craft shops, and cafés, this welcoming town is a delight to experience.

Nelson, New Zealand
Tucked within the sparkling azure waters of Tasman Bay on New Zealand’s South Island is the charismatic city of Nelson. Settled by the English in 1841, the town’s history is on display at Founders Heritage Park, a living museum with a vintage railway. While Nelson is home to an array of cafés, restaurants, shops and art galleries, it’s also a gateway to such nearby attractions as Abel Tasman National Park and the wine-producing region of Marlborough.

Napier, New Zealand
Nestled on the Pacific coastline of New Zealand’s North Island is charming Napier, a town with much to boast about. Napier is known for producing wool, growing fruit, cultivating grapes and making wine. The city abounds in art deco splendor with iconic landmarks, rivaled only by the surrounding natural beauty of Hawke’s Bay. A highlight of the region is wild and wonderful Cape Kidnappers, known for its gannet colony, considered to be one of only two such mainland colonies in the world.

Auckland, New Zealand
Situated astride a narrow, jade-green isthmus between the shimmering waters of the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean on two harbors, the Waitematā and Manukau, is Auckland. This vibrant city is a gateway to New Zealand’s natural and cultural treasures: great natural beauty, friendly people, magnificent glacier-studded mountain ranges, sculpted fjords, pristine beaches, lush rainforest, an endless array of sporting activities, and, not to be forgotten, plenty of sheep and rolling farmland.
