Port can be skipped, we did a hop on hop off (new one red open top bus) and the entire we were harassed by the driver for not getting off at stops. No one wanted to as we would have to wait 30-40 minutes for the next bus if there were seats avail. We finally dd get off a couple stops earlier than we planned and walked as we got tired of his attitude

Bay Of Islands, New Zealand

Wish we would have had 2 days here and skipped Aukland, took fast ferry to Russell fun little island then walked around before heading back to the ship
