Your Experience:

Following a stunning cruise around New Zealand on board Sapphire Princess, experience the excitement of the Australian Open’s Finals.

Flying to Melbourne for an overnight hotel stay, you’ll sail away to New Zealand’s coastline on board Sapphire Princess. Gliding through Fiordland National Park, savour the unparalleled views of soaring, forest-caped peaks, wispy waterfalls falling like trails of broken lace and glassy waters reflecting these stunning vistas. You’ll continue to Dunedin, the ‘Edinburgh of the South’ and charming Akaroa, home to the smallest dolphin in the world. Walk within idyllic Picton, visit the steaming, hot saltwater pools in Tauranga and explore the thriving multi-cultural city of Auckland before arriving back in Melbourne for the highlight of this cruise holiday: the Australian Open. During your stay in Melbourne, witness some of the world’s most renowned tennis players go head-to-head in nail-bitingly intense matches to be the champion of this highly anticipated competition.
