Hobart, Australia

Tasmania’s capital has much in common with Sydney. Founded but a few years later, Hobart also owes its origins to the establishment of a penal colony - and its natural setting is just as impressive. Seen from its fine deep-water harbour, Hobart spills over the lower reaches of the Derwent Valley as Mt. Wellington towers in the background. Much of the city’s heritage is centred on the historic waterfront. North of the city stretches the vast parkland of the Queen’s Domain. Many of Tasmania’s other attractions are within easy reach of Hobart.
Onboard meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner

Milford Sound, New Zealand

For first time visitors and lifelong natives alike, Milford Sound is one of the most immediately breathtaking places in New Zealand. The 13 mile (20 km) long fiord is dominated by beautiful Mitre Peak and calmed by gorgeous waters that mirror the sheer peaks surrounding them. Although remote, Milford Sound has visitors from all over the world to admire its raw, unspoiled beauty and rare marine life.
Doubtful Sound, New Zealand
Often referred to as the ‘Sound of Silence’, Doubtful Sound is a tranquil, awe-inspiring destination known for its cascading waterfalls, looming mountains and rare marine life. Whereas in the past only the most courageous sailors would enter the sound, today it is one of the most beautiful, protected bodies of water in Fiordland National Park, attracting photographers, adventurers and cruisers from all over the globe.
Dusky Sound, New Zealand
One of the most complex fiords on New Zealand’s southern coast, Dusky Sound is a place of serene beauty, accessible today only by sea or air. European explorers first spotted this treasure when Captain Cook and his crew happened upon it in the late eighteenth century. Although they returned to explore its waters months later, Cook and his crew named it Dusky Sound for the time of night when they first found it.
Onboard meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner


Monday 9 March
Dunedin, New Zealand
