Day 1: Sydney, Australia |Embark

Sydney is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city surrounded by golden sand beaches, World Heritage areas, lush national parks and acclaimed wine regions. Sydney owes much of its splendor to its magnificent harbor.

Located at the mouth of the Yarra River, Melbourne was founded by free settlers in 1835, 47 years after the first European settlement in Australia. Transformed rapidly into a major metropolis by the Victorian gold rush in the 1850s, Melbourne became Australia's largest and most important city, and by 1865 was the second largest city in the British Empire. Today, Melbourne is a major center of commerce, industry and cultural activity, and is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world.

Day 8: Milford Sound, New Zealand | Cruising Fiordland Natl Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Milford Sound is a fjord in the south west of New Zealand's South Island, off the Tasman Sea. Part of the Fjordland National Park and the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site, it has been judged one of the world's top travel destinations in an international survey. Frequently visited by rain, the mountain peaks rising from the waters of Milford Sound are often softened by mist and an air of almost flawless and overpowering mystic calm. Acclaimed as New Zealand's most famous tourist destination.

New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park is the largest of the country’s 14 national parks, at 4,868 sq. mi./12,607 sq. km. Located on the southwest corner of the South Island, it was founded in 1904, to protect the natural environment for nature lovers and trekkers. It comprises a large portion of the Te Wahipounamu UNESCO World Heritage Site. The key features of the park are the mountain ranges of the Southern Alps, which rise to heights from 1,500 m/4,900 ft to over 2,500 m/8,200 ft., as well as the spectacular U-shaped glaciated fjord valleys that cut into the mountains as deeply as 25 miles from the sea. There are three major fjords that are navigable by your ships, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound. Your exact itinerary will be determined by your captain depending on the weather and other conditions on the day. But whatever course you sail, you will be treated to spectacular waterways curving between sheer cliffs towering thousands of feet above the mirrored surface of the fjord. Depending on recent rainfall, waterfalls tumble down the rock faces from above. Many of the peaks have nicknames based on their resemblance to animals or other objects of previous observers’ imaginations. You are also likely to see seals, birds including fiordland penguins, bottlenose dolphins and possibly such other fauna as red deer or whales.

Day 9: Oban (Halfmoon Bay), New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
You might not realize that New Zealand has a third island. It hangs beneath the South Island and is just about the last inhabited place before Antarctica. The island itself is only about four percent inhabited, and that is its attraction. It is an unspoiled piece of primeval New Zealand. Oban is a very small town, about 800 souls. The phonebook is printed on a single sheet of A4 paper!

Day 10: Port Chalmers (Dunedin), New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Port Chalmers is the main port for the city of Dunedin. Situated in a natural amphitheater at the head of a long fjord-like inlet, Dunedin was the first permanent European settlement in New Zealand, founded in 1848. Not long afterwards, gold was discovered in the region, and the province quickly became the richest and most influential in the colony. While Christchurch is New Zealand's most English town, Dunedin is its most Scottish; the name Dunedin is the old Gaelic name for Edinburgh. Numerous distinctive and historic buildings remain from the time of its predominantly Scottish settlers, preserving its architectural heritage.

Day 11: Timaru, New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
South of the Canterbury Plain on the South Island, Timaru is built on the rolling volcanic hills surrounding Mt. Horrible. Originally a whaling station, it grew to serve the sheep stations in the surrounding countryside. Visit the South Canterbury Museum, filled with artifacts and information about the history of the region from the Maori arrival to the present day, and the Aigantighe Art Gallery, housed in a homestead dating from 1908.

Day 12: Kaikoura, New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
 Kaikoura draws visitors from all over the world for the prolific marine life in the surrounding waters. Whale (including sperm whales), dolphin and seal watching tours operate year-round. There is a scenic walkway from the town center out to Point Kean, and there are colonies of fur seals on the rocky shores. The Fyffe House is a 19th century home built on a foundation of whale bones, with a museum of whaling history. It’s also famous for fresh seafood including crayfish (known elsewhere as spiny lobsters) and the delicious Paua (also known as abalone.) 

Day 13: Picton, New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Picton sits at the head of the Queen Charlotte Sound and the sail into and out of town will reveal some classic New Zealand scenery. The town offer access to the Marlborough wine country, other spectacular sounds and lots of outdoor activities such as kayaking, fishing, trekking and cycling.

Day 14: Wellington, New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Visually stunning, Wellington is nestled between a magnificent harbor and a natural amphitheatre of forest-clad hills. Its compact size, combined with cultural sophistication, makes it New Zealand's most inspiring urban destination. Wellington's cultural crowning jewel is Te Papa, a donation-only museum that celebrates Australasian natural history, science and culture. Exhibits include Maori artifacts, an extensive Pacific Cultures collection and interactive science exhibits. The city's art scene is flourishing, with numerous galleries and craft markets displaying the work of the country's top artists and craftspeople.

Day 15: Days At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy onboard amenities and activites.

Day 16: Matiatia Bay, Waiheke Island, New Zealand

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Waiheke is an upscale resort community offshore from Auckland in the Hauraki Gulf, with renowned wineries, olive groves, art galleries, boutiques and restaurants.  It is a favorite of affluent Aucklanders for weekend getaways and short vacations, just 35 minutes by ferry form the city. Seabourn called there years ago but has not been back for many years. It was a highlight during earlier visits. 

Day 17: Auckland, New Zealand | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbors on two separate bodies of water. The central part of urban Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbor on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbor on the Pacific Ocean. In addition, Auckland's diverse geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle regularly ranked in the world's top ten. A half hour drive from the city there is an abundance of activities: sailing to a secluded island, trekking through the rainforest, picnicking on a volcano, sampling wines at a vineyard or exploring a black sand beach.
