Journey with us on this extraordinary, 10-night itinerary which affords the rare opportunity to circumnavigate the South Island of New Zealand and experience inimitable natural wonders that exist nowhere else on the planet. Cruise the breathtaking scenery of the South Island for seven nights aboard the exclusively chartered, Five-Star Le bellot—featuring only 92 Suites and Staterooms, each with a private balcony, and the extraordinary Blue Eye, the world’s first luxury, underwater Observation Lounge. Cruise the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Fiordland National Park and board Zodiacs for up-close views of glacier-cut fjords, cascading waterfalls and valleys hung with cumulus clouds in spectacular Milford Sound, Dusky Sound and Doubtful Sound. Navigate pristine Queen Charlotte Sound and visit the world-famous Marlborough wine region. Spend three nights in cosmopolitan Auckland, including a Northland country farmstead adventure, and experience the convivial spirit of New Zealand “Kiwis” and rich Māori culture in Wellington. Tour charming Christchurch, where English influence persists in Victorian architecture and manicured gardens. Extend your journey with our Spectacular Sydney Pre-Program Option and New Zealand’s Southern Alps and The Remarkables Post-Program Option.
