Sydney 2 nights-- 1 hotel and 1 on ship
Sea--Milford, Doubtful and Dusky Sounds
Sea--Volcanic White Island
Aukland--2 extra nights here in hotel.
While on the cruise we booked a S. Carib. cruise for next Jan. It's always nice to have something to look forward to.
What is the best way to get into Wellington (city area) from the cruise ship dock? About how far is it? Is it an area that's okay to walk in? Did you take a tour here?
