Ports

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

Places of Interest
Auckland War Memorial, Sky Tower, Auckland Regional Botanical Gardens

Bay of Islands

Tauranga

Rotorua (some miles inland from the port of Tauranga) is the center of New Zealand's thermal area on the North Island. Spectacular phenomena such as geysers, boiling mud, hot pools, hot springs, and spouts of gushing steam can be seen. Lake Rotorua's waters are icy, yet the sandy shores are too warm for bare feet to walk upon. Rotorua is also the center of Maori life and culture, with a model village, displays of carving, and concerts of Maori music and singing. Tauranga, meaning "shelter" (named by Capt. Cook the Bay of Plenty), with its population of 48,000, is now a modern thriving city supported by the export of lumber and farming. This popular holiday resort is a paradise for deep-sea fishermen, and close to the golden sands of Ohope Beach for surfing and swimming.

Wellington

New Zealand's capital city features brightly painted wooden houses and a red cable car that takes you up to a fine view of the harbor. A must-see is the engaging Te Papa Tongarewa National Museum and Art Gallery, and keep your eyes peeled for the Beehive government offices—the name, of course, is a reference to the architecture.

Akaroa

Dunedin

The Gaelic word for Edinburgh is Dunedin and, not surprisingly, this one retains a number of close links with the Scottish capital. Not only are many of the street names the same, other reminders include the railroad station, University Clock Tower and Gothic Revival Dominican Priory – all built in similar styles. Sightseeing options include Lanarch Castle, a stroll through the Botanic Gardens, a walk up Baldwin Street – the steepest in the world – and a ride on the vintage train through Taieri Gorge.

Melbourne

Dubbed one of the world’s most liveable cities, Melbourne has much to offer the day visitor. The locals’ passion for culture, fashion, food and music has created a swanky, cosmopolitan air. The city’s suburbs present a rich blend of architecture, cuisine and atmospheres. Take a trip to Albert Park Lake, Melbourne’s arts and cultural centre or sample one of myriad restaurants. With one of the world’s largest Greek communities outside of Greece, the Moussaka is much recommended!

Sydney - Australia

Sydney is Australia's largest city, which is the number one tourist destination in the country. It offers a multitude of sights such as the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest centre – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains.

Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity Cruises

Since its inception in 1989, Celebrity has held true to its original commitment of taking the very best aspects of classic, elegant cruising and updating them to reflect current lifestyles. In 1997, we merged with Royal Caribbean International to form Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

What sets Celebrity apart from other vacation choices today is the cruise line's passionate dedication to providing guests with a cruise experience that exceeds expectations. This extraordinary performance level has become the definition of Celebrity Cruises, and has set the worldwide standard for today's expression of what first made cruising famous -- high quality, superior design, spacious accommodations, grand style, attentive service and exceptional cuisine.

The excellence of Celebrity's existing cruise product continues with the cruise line's Millennium-class ships, which embody even greater technical achievement and meaningful innovation, while retaining the distinctive style, sophistication and service elements that have become the hallmark of a Celebrity cruise.
 
 

Celebrity Cruises has recently announced a new “Extend Your Stay” program. Providing guests with convenience and relaxation, it will appeal to those facing waits at the airport before long flights home. In addition to the benefit of a leisurely last day onboard, the program allows guests to stay in their stateroom for an extra hour on the day the cruise ends. Guests who participate in “Extend Your Stay” also can enjoy some of the ship’s services until as late as 90 minutes before the next cruise sets sail.

The program includes a benefits such as non-alcoholic drinks from Café al Bacio; breakfast and lunch in Bistro on Five; the opportunity to watch a first-run movie in one of the ship’s theaters; and access to the pool, fitness center and locker rooms. The AquaSpa will be available for spa services at an additional charge. Bar purchases can be made on the last day of the cruise using a credit card.

“Extend Your Stay” is available on all European sailings. Extend Your Stay departure times may vary by ship and itinerary based on local immigration regulations. 

 

Now, on up to two nights on every cruise, Evening Chic activities are being introduced, and Evening Chic attire is replacing Formal attire. Evening Chic is an acknowledgment that cruising attire trends have moved towards sophistication and relaxation, rather than stuffiness and structure. While dressier than Smart Casual, Evening Chic is intended to be less dressy than Formal attire.

    Women should feel comfortable wearing:
  • A cocktail dress
  • Skirt, pants or designer jeans with an elegant top
  •  
    Men should feel comfortable wearing:
  • Pants or designer jeans with a dress shirt, button-down shirt or sweater
  • Optional sport coat or blazer
