Setting sail from Auckland

Auckland offers a buzzing waterfront and a vibrant arts scene, and provides a fascinating introduction to New Zealand's proud cultural heritage. The centre is home to excellent shopping and a number of fantastic restaurants, while the north of the city has a distinctly more laid-back vibe, and to the west is the city's oldest wine region.

Our tip

Standing 328 metres tall, the Sky Tower offers the best view of the city from the observation deck or from its two restaurants.

Caledonian Sky at sea
Suite on Caledonian Sky
Caledonian Sky sundeck

One of Noble Caledonia’s flagships, Caledonian Sky is more akin to a country hotel than a big cruise ship.

What we love

Formerly known as the Hebridean Spirit, the MS Caledonian Sky has exceptionally spacious suites with a traditional feel created by the wooden panelling and brass features. The grand yet comfortable Lounge and Restaurant contrast with the modern furnishings on the Sun Deck but all combine to make a wonderful home from home on a usually in-depth and fascinating itinerary.
