15 night cruise sailing from Sydney, Australia aboard the Seven Seas Explorer
Visit Eden, Phillip Island, Melbourne, Burnie, Tasmania, Dunedin, New Zealand, Akaroa, Wellington, Napier, Gisborne, Bay of Islands and Auckland.


One of the liveliest, must-see cities of the Pacific Rim, Sydney humbly began life as a British penal colony in 1788. Among the colorful characters in its early history was William Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty fame who was deposed as governor during the Rum Rebellion of 1808. In 1852, with the discovery of gold in the interior, Sydney became a thriving port of the Victorian Empire. Today, Sydney looks to the future, its skyline crowned by the graceful billowing sails of its famed Opera House. Visitors can get a glimpse of the past along the narrow, twisting streets of the Rocks, Sydney’s restored historical district and for the adventurous, the Sydney bridge climb will reward you with panoramic views of the city and harbor. Excursions can reveal the spectacular, untamed beauty of the Blue Mountains with a ride on the worlds steepest perpendicular railway; or get up close and personal with Australia’s charming wildlife at the Koala Park Sanctuary, then end your day with a refreshing stop at a traditional Aussie pub.


Formerly a whaling hub in the 19th century, Eden is the southernmost town in New South Wales, nestled between two glorious bays and perched on rolling hills bounded by dramatic cliffs and expansive sandy beaches. Eden’s whaling legacy lives on in its exciting whale-watching opportunities and the fascinating Killer Whale Museum. At the Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre, towering lighthouses and the scenic coastline keep the focus firmly on the ever-changing sea.

Phillip Island

Phillip Island will captivate you with its iconic wildlife, pristine white beaches and hi-octane motor sports. From tiny penguins to sleepy koalas to Australia’s largest fur seal colony, you can find them here in their natural habitat as part of the UNESCO Western Port Biosphere Reserve. Take in some of the best surfing in the country at Cape Woolamai, set against the backdrop of ancient pink granite. The region was recently declared a National Surfing Reserve in recognition of its rich surfing heritage and pristine natural environment. For a thrilling racing experience visit the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.


Far from the clichéd Australia of popular perception, Melbourne is a graceful city of European style and substance, fine living and cultural riches. Its many green parks and public gardens reflect the foresight of this city's 19th century founders and their intention to create a "pleasing to the eye" metropolis for the enjoyment of all. The city's moderate climate and financial prominence have attracted huge numbers of visitors from all over the world.


Located on the northwest coast of Tasmania, Burnie was originally settled in 1827 as “Emu Bay.” The town was later renamed after William Burnie, a director of the Van Diemen’s Land Company. The first settlers literally carved a village out from the rain forests and tea-tree swamps that occupied the area. After mineral deposits were discovered in Tasmania, the town prospered. In the late 30s, Burnie’s industry bloomed even more when Associated Pulp and Paper Mills Limited began large production.


This charming city lies at the head of a fiord-like inlet and is surrounded by seven hills. In the early days, Dunedin was the largest and wealthiest city in the country, thanks mainly to the gold fields. It has been responsible for many firsts: the first to have gaslight, water mains, hydro power and steam trams. Discover the rugged, beautiful Otago Peninsula, filled with geological wonders, and gaze in awe at the great albatross with its ten-foot wingspan. Keep an eye out for fur seals on the rocks and perhaps some yellow-eyed penguins. Visit Larnach Castle, a historic 19th-century property surrounded by gardens and splendid views. It is often said that Dunedin is the most perfectly preserved Victorian City anywhere. Explore historic Dunedin with its splendid Victorian and Edwardian stone buildings. Look for delightful local crafts, artwork, wool and leather items among the souvenirs. Enjoy a wide variety of cuisines as well as lamb and seafood.


Set on a beautiful, sheltered harbor and overlooked by craggy volcanic hills, Akaroa is a popular resort town on Banks Peninsula in New Zealand. The name Akaroa means “Long Harbor.” Sailors from the HMS Britomart proclaimed British sovereignty for the land in 1840, but French settlers also settled in the area that year. There is still a heavy French influence found on the island, including many French local names.


Stroll past Victorian Gothic buildings, visit the exquisite Botanic Gardens, take the cable car up the mountain for a fantastic view, or head for the city beach. Journey around the spectacular harbor with its amazing views and visit a sheep or cattle station. See some of the sites where the Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed. Shopping: Shop for arts and crafts, jewelry, fine woolens, and leather goods. Shop for arts and crafts, jewelry, fine woolens, and leather goods. Enjoy a variety of continental dishes in addition to succulent lamb and seafood.


The twin cities of Napier and Hastings, located within the region of Hawke's Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island, are unique. The area is blessed with a Californian-Mediterranean climate, boasting one of the highest sunshine averages in the country. The area is also dotted with colorful vineyards and orchards, with some of the most fertile farmland you will see. Within the region are more than twenty of New Zealand's finest vineyards.


This charming seaside community was named in honor of the crew member aboard Captain James Cook’s ship Endeavour who first sighted land in the area in 1769. Not only boasting a long maritime history and a vibrant Maori heritage and culture, Gisborne is also known for its wine, often called the “Chardonnay Capital of New Zealand.” Be sure to visit Gisborne’s splendid array of boutique wineries. And for a taste of Gisborne’s history and art, the Tairawhiti Museum is an essential destination in this city of warm smiles and even warmer hearts.

Bay of Islands

The "Bay of Islands" was how Captain Cook described this area two centuries ago and the simplicity of his name masks the diversity of its charms. The Bay of Islands is the finest Maritime Park in the country with 144 islands, secluded bays and abundance of marine life. It is one of the most popular fishing, sailing and tourist destinations in the country, and has been renowned internationally for its big-game fishing since author Zane Grey publicized it in the 1930s.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC), formerly known as Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, offers luxury cruises to over 300 ports world-wide, and specialises in small-passenger ships and all-inclusive cruising. This is cruising as it is meant to be – everything is included, without exception and without compromise. Their cruises have been billed as “the most all-inclusive”, with your cruise fare including most alcoholic beverages onboard the ship, and most shore excursions in ports of call, as well as all gratuities.

The three ships that make up the Regent Seven Seas’ fleet, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Voyager and Seven Seas Navigator, offer comfortable and luxurious stateroom and suite accommodations to all guests, and butler service is provided in higher-level accommodations, such as Penthouse Suites. Voyager and Mariner are often described as the world’s first and second “all-suite, all-balcony cruise ships.”

Onboard you expect sublime personal service, complete and absolute comfort, gratifying luxuries and world-class cuisine. Regent Seven Seas Cruises promises an extraordinary experience, and they always deliver.


Dining onboard a Regent Seven Seas’ cruise is a gourmet extravaganza, accompanied by exceptional wines and impeccable service. And, it’s all included. Dine whenever, wherever and with whomever you choose in the open-seating restaurants. Indulge on meals using fresh produce from international markets, delicious artisan cheeses and scrumptious baked goods crafted from the finest French flour – cruising has never tasted so good!


Cruising with Regent Seven Seas Cruises is geared towards adults, but summer sailings and select holiday cruises have a kids’ programme, in which counsellors supervise activities such as games, craft projects and movies, for kids aged 5 to 17 (in three age groups – 5 to 9, 10 to 13 and 14 to 17). For the younger kids, there are games, craft projects, movies and “food fun” on offer, while teens help the counsellors select activities they prefer.

On non-summer or holiday sailings, an ad-hoc kids’ programme is put together if there are enough kids onboard. The minimum age for children onboard is 1 year, and the cruise line may limit the number of children onboard aged 3 and under.
