This year why not treat yourself to the ultimate Christmas present with ecruising’s sensational 12-night New Zealand Holiday Cruise.

Departing Sydney on 23 December 2019, this itinerary from one of Australia’s leading travel experts, offers up an unparalleled opportunity to experience the very best of the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’, onboard Celebrity Solstice, taking in some of New Zealand’s most stunning destinations along the way.

Ranked amongst Conde Naste Traveler’s 20 top large cruise ships in 2014, the highly decorated Solstice features ultra-modern styling, sophisticated spas, tranquil relaxation areas and a wealth of fantastic dining options, not to mention beautifully designed staterooms and suites, the distinctive Lawn Club – a half-acre of real grass perched at the very top of the ship, and two sensational pools, making it the perfect place to celebrate the festive season.

Your journey begins with a 2-day sailing across the Tasman including an unforgettable Christmas Day at sea, where you can expect to see all the festive trimmings including wreaths, holly, mistletoe and, of course, a chance to help decorate the Solstice Christmas tree.

Arriving in New Zealand on Boxing Day, journey highlights include stopovers at the charming seaside town of Picton at the head of Queen Charlotte Sound, where you can visit some of New Zealand’s leading wineries in the country’s famed Marlborough District; Napier in Hawkes Bay, home to the largest gannet nesting site in the world at Cape Kidnappers; and the nation’s capital, Wellington – the centre of New Zealand’s burgeoning film industry.

You’ll also have a chance to discover the charms of New Zealand’s only French-founded community at Akaroa on the east coast of the South Island, renowned for its secluded beaches and quaint boutiques, and Dunedin, on the southernmost Otago Peninsula, with its lavish and historic estates of Larnach Castle and Olveston House. And of course, no trip to New Zealand would be complete without a visit to the majestic Fiordland National Park on the South Island’s western coast, where you will cruise through the jaw-dropping dramatic Doubtful, Dusky and Milford Sounds.

Ring in the New Year at sea as Solstice sets sail for its return voyage to Australia. Arriving in laid back Newcastle on 3 January, spend day exploring its stunning surf beaches, before disembarking in Sydney on 4 January 2020.

ecruising’s 12-night New Zealand Holiday Cruise journey departs from Sydney on 23 December 2019 and is priced from $3,199* per person twin share including all accommodation and meals onboard Solstice. Even better, for an extra special Christmas bonus, spend an extra $49 per day or book a suite and receive a range of fantastic extras including free drinks, unlimited WiFi and up to USD600 spending money.
