A stunning video, lasting just three minutes and 20 seconds on YouTube, has captured a ship’s-eye view of a cruise around New Zealand, with stops at some of the best-known and most scenic points.
Princess Cruises marked the launch of its latest cruise program by releasing the time-lapse video, which follows Golden Princess on a 13-night voyage around New Zealand. The ship cruises the tranquil waters of the country’s stunning Fiordland and visits six different ports, from Auckland, Tauranga, Gisborne and Wellington in the North Island to Akaroa and Dunedin in the South Island.
Princess, which operates more cruises to New Zealand than any other cruise line, said it commissioned the video in order to portray the beauty of cruising the New Zealand coastline.

The video was produced by Timeflees.com cofounder Filippo Rivetti, who set up five cameras aboard Golden Princess to capture the vision including one with a 360-degree lens.
“I always had at least two cameras going at any moment, and up to four at the same time for the most important moments like in Fiordland National Park,” Rivetti said.
Rivetti’s favourite port? Dunedin. “It’s a fantastic town with a historic train station, some beautiful churches, a small castle and amazing views that just have New Zealand written all over them.”
