AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

Cruise on the MS Noordam
Feb 1-16, 2020

Islands, Volcanoes, Kiwis and Kangaroos

Join us and Holland America Cruise Lines to discover the “Land Down Under” on this scenic 16 day cruise through Australia and New Zealand – it’s sure to appeal to all your senses! The adventure begins in Auckland on the North Island where you’ll board the ship and cruise around marine volcanoes, white-sand beaches, rustic fjordlands covered in rainforests, and view wildlife ranging from herds of sheep to penguins, whales and dolphins. You’ll smell the sea air and notes of fruit in New Zealand’s world-class wines. You’ll have the chance to taste local seafood, fresh lamb raised on the islands, and sample the melting pot of New Zealand cuisine. You’ll witness the culture and history of New Zealand’s original settlers, the Maori people, who braved this impressive “middle earth” landscape back in the 13th century. A stop in Wellington, the southernmost capital city, will provide a chance to see the urban side of New Zealand! En route to Australia, the ship will stop at Tasmania Island. The tour will wrap up in Sydney, Australia, home of the iconic Opera House and Harbor Bridge. Highlights include visits to multiple UNESCO world-heritage sites, cruising Fiordland National Park, and many additional opportunities to explore beyond the ship and ports. Tulip Tours will offer optional add-on tours in Australia for those that want to more adventure.
