New…New Zealand and South Pacific cruises.

November 25, 2020 Cruise News No Comments

With cruising a tad stalled recently it is great to see that Coral Expeditions has announced four new 2021-2022 itineraries onboard their new Coral Geographer with the itineraries including some well know and also some lesser known destinations.

While New Zealand’s Auckland and Fiordland may be well known to some, the subantarctic Islands of Snares, Campbell, and the Solomon Islands may be less well known.

Jeff Gillies, commercial director at Coral Expeditions said in a statement, “Our new itineraries celebrate the distinct facets that make New Zealand one of the most aspirational global destinations for a natural and cultural adventure,” adding, “From its vast landscapes and geological formations, an abundance of birds and endemic wildlife, a powerful Maori and Polynesian cultural influence, and a fascinating maritime history, this is a rewarding and educational expedition series.”

According to Coral Expeditions these amazing itineraries explore remote natural landscapes and showcase rich cultural experiences, from hiking through the lush Waimangu Volcanic Valley, the world’s youngest geothermic valley, to encounters with powerful Maori traditions and people in historical Gisborne.

With Coral Expeditions saying New Zealand’s Subantarctic region is the centrepiece of the voyages, they added that guests can expect an array of experiences, including guided shore excursions to the protected natural reserves of Campbell and Auckland Islands, with these islands, cloaked in pastures of endemic megaherbs and red-flowering rata, a sanctuary for rare birdlife, including ten species of Albatross and penguin, including the rare, yellow-eyed penguin, with the islands also a haven for fur seals, sea lions, and elephant seals”.

The voyages vary between eight and 14 nights in length, for the eight-night “South Coast to Fiordland” itinerary, with all bookings including shore excursions, meals, and beverages.
