Cruise Description

11 Night Cruise sailing from Lyttelton to Auckland aboard Star Breeze.

Star Breeze is large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can’t reach.

Starting 10/27/2020, this all-suite ship will complete renovation as part of the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative to provide more of what our guests love. New public areas, including a two new dining venues, a new spa, infinity pool, and fitness area. The ship also boasts all new bathrooms in every suite and a new category of Star suites, featuring a new layout. With ocean-views and over 277 square feet of comfort, Star Breeze is the perfect ship to watch glaciers and fjords drift by from the serenity of your suite.

Carrying only 312 guests, Star Breeze still tucks into small ports like Le Lavandou and Wrangell or narrow waterways like the Corinth and Keil Canal.

We can’t wait to welcome you onboard for your next 180 degrees from ordinary adventure!

Highlights of this cruise:

Auckland
Auckland is located on the north island of New Zealand, situated between two magnificent harbours, the Waitemata and the Manukau. It is the largest city in NZ and is often referred to as the ‘City of Sails’ due to the large number of yachts which travel in its waters.

Auckland city has a great range of shops including designer boutiques, markets and stalls. It is also home to many fine galleries and museums including the Auckland Museum and the Auckland City Art Gallery. Restaurants in the waterfront suburbs such as Mission Bay or St Heliers and the inner city specialise in local seafood delicacies. There are also a number of attractive public gardens and reserves surrounding the city.

The large Polynesian population in Auckalnd include Maori, Samoan, Cook Island and Tongan people whom all contribute to the city's vibrant culture. Local markets and churches in particular provide an insight to the local cultures.

Wellington
Wellington is the capital city and geographical centre of New Zealand, situated at the southern tip of New Zealand’s north island. It is surrounded by hills and a rugged coastline, and boasts a stunning harbor. It is known both as the Windy city and as the cultural and arts capital of New Zealand.

Wellington has many historic sites and buildings to visit. Among these are Antrim House, the Colonial Cottage Museum and Old St Paul's Cathedral. A trip on the Cable Car is popular, as is a harbor cruise or a ferry trip to Eastbourne, where there are craft shops, galleries and cafes.

There are 350 restaurants and cafes in Wellington serving a wide range of cuisines, and downtown Wellington on Lambton Quay is popular for shopping.

Christchurch
Christchurch is the largest city on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is located on the edge of the Canterbury plains and is a major stepping off point for touring the South Island. Mountains, ocean beaches, rivers, lakes and wide open spaces can be found less than an hour from the city centre.

The Avon River, a spread of Victorian architecture, and the avenues and squares, are a responsible for Christchurch’s reputation of "Englishness”. Internationally famed ‘The Garden City’, one-eighth of its area is devoted to public parks, reserves, and recreation grounds, with the 186-hectare (459-acre) Hagley Park smack in its center.

Due to an earthquake which hit Christchurch on February 22nd 2011, part of the central city of Christchurch is still cordoned off to the general public to ensure people's safety while safety checks and the clearing of damaged areas takes place. This cordon is gradually receding as more of the city is deemed safe and open for business. It is likely however, that some isolated parts of the city will remain behind cordons for some time while rebuilding takes place.
