Azamara offers several opportunities to sail to Auckland along with other enticing ports and cities across New Zealand, Australia, and Tasmania. In 2017, you might board the Azamara Journey for a voyage in partnership with PerryGolf that includes world-class courses like Sydney’s Lakes Golf Club; Shirley Links at Christchurch; and Tasmania’s remote Barnbougle Dunes & Lost Farm. Wine tastings and national park and Maori community visits round out the trip. The New Zealand Explorer itinerary, meanwhile, focuses on the breathtaking locations where Lord of the Rings was filmed. It’ll be tough to pick a favorite moment, between swimming with tiny dolphins in Akaroa, whale watching in Kaikoura, and exploring quaint coastal towns. In 2018, you can choose from two 14-night sailings to Tasmania and New Zealand. One emphasizes golf experiences of a lifetime—including playing the Tom Doak-designed Cape Kidnappers course on a windswept plateau—while the other is a greatest hits tour featuring Sydney, Australia; Hobart, Tasmania; New Zealand’s spectacular Milford Sound, where cliffs rise straight up out of the sea; Marlborough wine country; and Auckland. No matter the voyage, Azamara does destinations justice with its promise of more time in port.
