This was a very memorable trip but the highlight was visiting New Zealand.

Ruth and Alfred, London - (trip to Sydney, Australia)

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing cruise to Australia and New Zealand aboard the Celebrity Solstice!  Sydney has so much to offer and we took in the Botonical Gardens, hop on, hop off bus, and saw the famous Bondi Beach. We enjoyed the complimentary Sydney Harbour Cruise.  At our Melbourne port, we took the excursion, 12 Apostle National Park, on the Great Ocean Road.  Tasmania was a beautiful city and we enjoyed a Wild Animal Sanctuary for injured or orphaned animals, where you can actually interact with the kangaroos and feed them.

Our highlight was when we reached Milford Sound, New Zealand with beautiful fiords.  From here we took the multi-day overnight tour which went to Queenstown.  We saw magnificent views of snow-capped mountains, rushing rapids, dazzling waterfalls and deep lush valleys of the Southern Alps and ended up in Dunedin where we joined the ship. We stopped at Akaroa and Wellington  where we saw vineyards, bungy jumping, and green countryside with fields of sheep. We took a tour to Christchurch gondola, Orana Wildlife Park and Zealandia Sanctuary. At Napier we had an Art Deco tour and saw black sand beaches.  At Bay of Islands we had a tour with a cruise to Zane Greys Hole in the Rock where we spotted dolphins and penguins thriving in their natural habitat.   Auckland was our last port where we took in a city tour and harbour cruise dropping us off at the airport.

This was a very memorable trip but the highlight was visiting New Zealand.   The landscape of New Zealand takes in mountains, lakes, rivers, beaches, hills, plains, volcanoes, rainforests and fiords all contained in a relatively small area.
