New Zealand, known by local Maori as "Aotearoa", or the 'land of the long white cloud', has some pretty stunning sights to behold.

This 13-night voyage on the luxurious Dawn Princess departs January 24 and heads straight for the south, starting at the South Island’s Fiordland National Park. Milford Sound is one New Zealand’s most famous tourist destinations -- you'll experience scenic cruising here and witness dramatic waterfalls, ancient rain forest, shimmering lakes and granite peaks before heading around the bottom of the South Island. There you'll discover the historic city of Dunedin, famous for its Victorian architecture and jangly pop music -- and home to penguins and seal colonies.

As you travel up the South Island's east coast, you'll get to the port of Lyttelton, the gateway to the city of Christchurch. In the North Island you'll explore the sophisticated cities of Wellington, Tauranga and Napier, soak up Maori culture and entertainment in Rotorua, and head to NZ's biggest city, Auckland. Known as the City of Sails, Auckland is a vast, sprawling city with loads of sight-seeing activities to check out. To find out more about this New Zealand Cruise go to
