New Zealand

It is a world you enter the moment the ship leaves Earth and launches off on your adventure. A world where you are free to have your holiday any way that you choose. Start dinner with dessert. Wake up at the crack of midday. Discover strange new worlds.

Trust us, you’ll want to be on deck and looking outwards for this one. New Zealand is not just about awe- inspiring natural beauty.
