New Zealand/Australia 12/22/09
 
We're going on Diamond Princess 12/20/09 to New Zealand and Australia. Has anyone been on this type of cruise before? Shore excursions? Weather very hot?? Any help would be appreciated.

We did this cruise in November and December, weather was cool, anywhere from 60 degrees to 75 degrees. We were told it was unseasonably cool spring for them (on both New Zealand and Australia) We would do the cruise again1 Throughly enjoyed it, what ports of call will you be doing?

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.
