In New Zealand, the Maori spirit coexists with British culture. It is a fascinating country and the land of Hobbits and the Kiwis which we can explore on our cruise. Here, nature seems to have concentrated its most majestic features.
If you see more sheep than people, you are most likely taking a trip to New Zealand. The country consists of two islands: North Island and South Island. In the North, the bay and the port of Auckland are the landing point chosen by Costa Cruises. We’ll go to the top of the incredibly high Sky Tower and enjoy an incredible view over the whole city, taking advantage of the trip to explore its neighbourhoods. Just south of Auckland is the city of Tauranga, the ideal port to learn about Maori lifestyle and traditions, due to the presence of many indigenous villages. In the fertile Bay of Plenty region, among the orchards surrounding it, you will taste the sweetest and juiciest kiwi fruits you have ever eaten.
