Cruise details

16 Night Cruise sailing from Auckland roundtrip aboard Seabourn Encore.

Seabourn Encore is as strikingly beautiful and as excitingly innovative as any Seabourn has ever debuted. It will crown a fleet that is already the newest, most modern and most acclaimed in the ultra-luxury segment. Modeled on the award-winning trio of ships introduced with Seabourn Odyssey in 2009, Seabourn Encore represents another welcome stage in the evolution of small-ship cruising, which Seabourn pioneered and has consistently expanded and enriched.

Highlights of this cruise:

Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbors on two separate bodies of water. The central part of urban Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbor on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbor on the Pacific Ocean. In addition, Auckland's diverse geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle regularly ranked in the world's top ten. A half hour drive from the city there is an abundance of activities: sailing to a secluded island, trekking through the rainforest, picnicking on a volcano, sampling wines at a vineyard or exploring a black sand beach.

Tauranga, the principal city on the Bay of Plenty, is the largest export town in New Zealand. Its name, fittingly enough, means "resting place for canoes", as this was the landing place of some of the first Maoris to arrive in New Zealand. The 19th-century missionaries left a legacy of well-planned parks and gardens for today's residents and visitors to enjoy. Tauranga is one of New Zealand's primary kiwi fruit and orchard regions, and the gateway to the geothermal park, Rotorua.

A major seaport, Fiji's second-largest city, Lautoka is the main center of the sugar and timber industries. Towering royal palms march in a long, orderly row from the main street to the harbor and into the heart of the city. Although Lautoka grew up around the Fijan village of Namoli, it is a very Indian town today.

Isle of Pines
Explore the pristine beaches of this tropical paradise and snorkel over colorful reefs in the crystal-clear waters. A perfect place to enjoy Seabourn's legendary caviar-in-the-surf.

Bay of Islands
The idyllic Bay of Islands is a popular vacation area for New Zealanders. Unassuming Russell holds a premier position in the nation’s history. It was at nearby Waitangi that the Maori chieftains signed a treaty in 1840 ceding their lands to the British Crown. The Waitangi Treaty Grounds remains an important national landmark. Strolling Russell’s tidy streets today, it is difficult to imagine that in the 19th century, this was called the “hellhole of the Pacific” -- a nearly lawless outpost for whalers, sailors and ambitious traders flooding the new imperial frontier. Popular excursions from Russell include surveys of the surviving forests of ancient kauri trees, many well over a thousand years old, and the phantasmagorical formations of volcanic basalt rock; kayaking the crucial mangrove forests of the estuaries; and visiting a traditional Maori marae, or meetinghouse, to learn about the indigenous people’s heritage. Other recreational alternatives include the spectacular 18-hole Kauri Cliffs golf course, rated as the best in the world by Golf Digest.
