Review summary

It was one of the best cruises we have ever taken. From the iconic Sydney Opera House to Tauranga’s Te Puia Thermal reserve and Maori Village recreation to the stunning Fjordland National Park and colorful Botanical Gardens in Wellington and Dunedin it was exciting, interesting and unique. The Majestic Princess is a beautiful ship, the rooms comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly and the entertainment was wonderful!

Our favorite port! We went to Te Puia Thermal Reserve home to the recreation of an early Maori village where they greeted us with a traditional Haka Welcome Ceremony followed by a beautiful dance by the women. The magnificent Pohutu Geyser , boiling mud and National Carving School is also there. From there we went to the Agrodome where we saw a sheep shearing and demonstration of the herding Sheep Dogs!
