We land in Auckland, and next ports in New Zealand are Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, cruise around Fjordland Natl Park, then Tasmania. In Australia we go to Phillip Island, Melbourne, and Syndey. From there we fly to Cairns to begin a 4 day Great Barrier Reef tour. Can't wait!
Any suggestions on what kinds of clothes to bring? Are formal nights really formal? I really would like to cut down on luggage -- I always pack too much, and then my hubbie gets annoyed with me for all the extra weight.
Do you remember an shore excursions that were memorable? I'd appreciate any help.
