Fantastic service

My consultant was Amy Darbyshire and I feel like I won the jackpot. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of ideas, options, price cues etc The service was incredible. If Amy promised to call or email information it happened. I am incredibly grateful to all the help she gave me and I’ve now booked my dream holiday thanks to her.

Itinerary for Sydney & New Zealand Discovery

Day 2 - Fly UK to Sydney

Day 4 - Enjoy Sydney

Day 5 - Enjoy Sydney

Day 6 - Embark Celebrity Eclipse in Sydney

Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers just about anything—from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium’s underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower.

Day 7 - At sea

Day 8 - At sea

Day 9 - Milford Sound / Doubtful Sound / Dusky Sound

As we sail into the narrow fjords of the Milford Sound, even your massive ship seems to shrink in comparison to the towering cliffs topped by lush mountain terrain. Situated within Fiordland National Park, this natural wonder is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site and is protected by its natural geography, which makes it a haven for all types of wildlife.

As cold mountain water cascades from the cliffs above Doubtful Sound, it creates an unusual phenomenon-a dual-layered marine ecosystem of fresh and saltwater. This serves as a playground for a number of species, including fur seals and two types of penguins - the fiordland crested and blue penguin.

Steep cliffs that have been carved over centuries by dozens of waterfalls surround the largest and most complex of the many fjords along the New Zealand coast, Dusky Sound. It's also a wildlife paradise, with seals and dolphins patrolling the water, and birds like broad billed prions, mottled petrels and sooty shearwaters floating on the overhead thermals.

Day 10 - Dunedin, New Zealand

Day 11 - Christchurch

New Zealand's "Garden City," featuring numerous parks and gardens as well as Victorian architecture, avenues and squares.

Day 12 - Wellington

From the new to the old, Wellington offers a bit of everything. Locals are particularly proud of the National Museum of New Zealand - Te Papa Tongarewa. Loosely translated as "our place" from the native Maori tongue, the museum is one of the world’s largest and most progressive. A great way to explore the city is on the restored cable cars, which traverse the shopping district. And if you want to experience it all from above, take in the panoramic views from Mount Victoria.

Day 13 - Napier

Arguably one of the prettiest cities in New Zealand, with elegant art deco architecture, captivating beaches and award-wining vineyards.

Day 14 - Tauranga

Known as the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is located at the entrance to one of the largest natural harbors in New Zealand. You can take a ride on a bush jet boat, go white-water rafting on the Rangitaiki River, or dine on the freshest fish and chips you’ll ever taste, served al fresco. If you’re looking for a more exotic counter, travel to the Mount Mauganui Hot Salt Water Pools.

Day 15 - Auckland

Your official welcome to New Zealand comes by way of a bustling harbor. Step ashore and into a surprisingly cosmopolitan environment. And once you venture inland, even more surprises await, including a total of 48 dormant volcanoes, a lush, leafy urban cityscape filled with beautiful parks, and a number of renowned art galleries.

Day 16 - At sea

Day 17 - At sea

Day 18 - Sydney, disembark & transfer to airport / Fly Sydney to UK
