New Zealand Cruises

Explore the New Zealand Coastline – in Luxury

Our New Zealand cruises offer a luxurious experience that allows you to take in scenic beauty at a relaxing pace. Although much smaller than its Aussie neighbour, New Zealand offers awe-inspiring beauty and unforgettable vistas.

Our New Zealand cruises let you explore the natural wonders of Fiordland National Park to the vibrant cities of Auckland and Wellington. If you prefer a shorter cruise experience, we have a small ship option taking you around the Great Barrier Reef or the stunning Milford and Doubtful Sounds. 

First Class Holidays offers a huge range of New Zealand cruise tours and can tailor a package to suit you. No matter which holiday you choose we can promise an experience of epic scenery and landscapes.
