South Pacific & New Zealand


15 Night Cruise sailing from Christchurch to Hobart aboard Crystal Endeavor.

15 Night Cruise sailing from Christchurch to Hobart aboard Crystal Endeavor.

From the pink granite peaks in Freycinet National Park in Tasmania to the deep turquoise of Adventure Bay, this is a holiday voyage filled with color. Vibrant and joyful moments await, including the New Year’s Eve extravaganza in Sydney Harbour in the midst of an epic expedition along rugged coastlines of the South Pacific.

This is a fantastic time of year to explore this region in depth, as the wilderness thrives in the warmer seasons and local communities, like charming Hobart, Tasmania come to life with the celebratory spirit.

Highlights of this cruise:

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 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.

Majestic peaks reaching toward the sky and white-plumed waterfalls cascading down forested cliffs into pristine waters make Milford Sound the undisputed jewel of New Zealand’s World Heritage-listed Fiordland National Park. Not surprisingly, the Maori believed the sound was carved by a divine stonemason. Its spectacular beauty is complemented by an abundance of amazing wildlife, including dolphins, seals and penguins.

Sydney is an energetic and exciting metropolis whose nightlife, shopping and fine restaurants compare favorably with the finest the world has to offer. Despite its modern advances, Sydney has lovingly cherished its heritage, for this was the birthplace of the Australian nation, defined by the billowing profile of the Opera House and the dramatic arch of the Harbour Bridge.

One of the world’s most breathtaking beaches, secluded Wineglass Bay, sits on Freysinet Peninsula on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia. Its azure waters and crescent-shaped, dazzling white sands are fringed by forested granite peaks. The bay is a gateway to beautiful Freycinet National Park. This haven for hikers, swimmers and snorkelers pleases nature lovers with an abundance of varied wildlife, including wallabies, brown falcons, white-bellied sea eagles, and more.

Hobart, Tasmania
Situated between Mount Wellington and the Derwent River, Hobart is recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful harbor cities – as well as an Antarctic gateway. History adds picturesque charm to this Tasmanian capital, for there are no less than 90 buildings with National Trust classification. At Salamanca Place and Battery Point, relics of the last century’s whaling days can still be seen.
