Great experience and that’s before we go!

The agent was quick to pick up on what we wanted and gave us options. He didn’t put pressure on us to book when we said we wanted to think about it and it was the whole booking experience that made Scotland’s cruise centre the one we chose to book with. No one else came near

Excellent customer care

Great customer service from Scott Fulton for amending our forthcoming cruise to a later date due to the uncertainty with Covid 19 and required testing for travel. Scott was extremely helpful and rearranged everything very professionally and kept us updated with his progress.

Day 6 - Embark Ovation of the Seas

Sydney, capital of New South Wales and one of Australia's largest cities, is best known for its harbourfront Sydney Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design. Massive Darling Harbour and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbour Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby. Sydney Tower’s outdoor platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city and suburbs.

Day 7 - Cruising

An 'at sea' day is your chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, including doing nothing at all. Relax in the Spa, take in a show at the theatre, or experience any of the incredible dining venues. There's so much to do the difficulty will be choosing what to do next!

Day 9 - Milford Sound / Doubtful Sound

The Maori believed it was a godly mason whose hand carved Milford Sound. The sheer precision of every slope is unfathomable, which is why Milford Sound is one of the most visually enticing natural wonders in all of New Zealand.

One of the unusual features of Doubtful Sound is that it has two layers of water. The fresh water flows on top of the seawater, and the two never mix together. As a result, much of the marine life can be found closer to the surface.

Day 10 - Dunedin, New Zealand

The grand 19th century Victorian buildings are as characteristic to the city as the natural surroundings. Stroll through the historic part of town or travel by vintage train to view Otago Harbor, where seals and penguins sunbathe.

Day 11 - Wellington

A red-hot arts scene, hip wine bars, designer boutiques, and steep hillsides lined with picture-perfect Victorian houses – the Kiwi capital has them all. If you’ve had enough of city trappings, nearby destinations like Wairarapa wine region beckon.

Day 13 - Tauranga

Blessed with bucket-loads of sunshine and sandy shores, you’ll see why Captain Cook called this area the Bay of Plenty. Not far away lie the steaming hot springs, geysers and exploding mud pools of Rotorua, a stronghold of Maori culture and crafts.

Day 14 - Auckland

Ascend the soaring 1076ft Sky Tower for jaw-dropping 360-degree views of this captivating Kiwi city. Or venture just a little further inland to explore the nation’s proud Maori heritage amid majestic landscapes shaped by no less than 48 volcanoes.

Day 15 - Bay of Islands

Some 150 isles-many still secluded-and a handful of coastal towns make up the Bay of Islands. Captain Cook gave the region its name in 1769. Nowadays, the azure waters full of big game fish attract visitors from far and wide.
