Discover New Zealand with ultimate cruising

New Zealand punches well above its weight with its outlandish scenery, fabulous festivals, superb food and wine, and magical outdoor experiences.  See geysers and glaciers along with sub-tropical rain forests.  The South Pacific is a treasure-trove of islands including Melanesia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands.  Indonesia’s eastern islands are scattered across the tropical seas like gems, a paradise of jungle islands, white-sand beaches and some of the world’s most pristine coral reef systems.  See the orang-utans in Sumatra. Papua New Guinea’s geographically and culturally diverse country is untouched by tourism and has amazing bird life and coral reefs.  In West Papua the whale sharks gather in October to be fed by hand.
