Australia / New Zealand ranks among the top travel cruise destinations despite the peculiarities of geography of the region. Washed by the South Pacific and Indian oceans, the continent and the archipelago should be first reached by air, then tourists transfer to the ship, and only after that the voyage begins. The departure point is usually Sydney whereas the ports of call include Noumea, Vila, Auckland, Denarau and sometimes Apia, Nuku'alofa, Honolulu as well as Papeete.
Actually, according to official tourist info, Australia — New Zealand cruises are available to customers all the year round so you can go to the region at any season. However, there are some peculiarities one should keep in mind while planning a voyage. Firstly, as the area is situated in the Southern Hemisphere, the winter there lasts from June to August, the summer begins in December and finishes in February. So the peak tourist time, called ‘the Wave season’, tends to be from October to May. At this period the choice of cruise deals offered by Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Azamara, Seabourn and other operators is enormous, but the prices are relatively high. Secondly, a cyclone season occurs from November to the beginning of May. The weather may be especially stormy in March and April.
Both Australia and New Zealand have a lot of sights to offer inquisitive tourists. Even more attractive they are because of high security level everywhere. Besides, while traveling across the region you may feel comfortable thanks to good roads, quality healthcare facilities. Australia is famous for historical sights; many of them are concentrated in Sydney (e. g., the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, etc.). Natural parks where endemic animal species live (koalas, kangaroos, wombats) are worth paying attention too. Besides, do not forget to have a look at the Great Barrier Reef and its underwater world. As for New Zealand, that is often called ‘the Land of the Long White Cloud’, it is not by mere chance that the archipelago was chosen for shooting ‘the Lord of the Rings’ movies. The nature there with all its geysers, glaciers, mountains and lakes is really something!
