The City of Sails and Adventure

Adorned with a harbor and a spectacular bridge, the largest and most populous city in New Zealand is also one of the most beautiful. Auckland will be the next stop on your MSC World Cruise, for an extraordinary vacation in the "City of Sails", named as such for its beautiful bays and its passion for water sports and yachting.
Its superb location, on a narrow strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea, is made even more attractive by the lush subtropical forests that surround the nearby hills and the volcanic landscapes of the surrounding islands. Another stop on your trip with MSC Cruises that can not be missed is the Sky Tower, the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere. At 328 meters in height, this tower offers breathtaking sights: out of its glass windows, the view stretches for 80 kilometers in every direction.

To find out all about the Maori culture and the origins of life in the ocean, you can visit the Auckland Museum, with a section dedicated to the Second World War. Here you can not only enjoy the collections on the local traditions, but also watch live vocal performances and dances by the local people. The National Maritime Museum instead will reveal the secrets of sailing in New Zealand, and at Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter & Underwater World aquarium, you can see fish of all kinds, alternating with the recreation of fantastic arctic excursions.

The city has a lot to offer in terms of art galleries, festivals and events of all kinds, related to music, cooking, wine and adventure, such as bungee jumping, skydiving, kayaking, swimming with dolphins and diving or shellfish. Thanks to your MSC cruise ship, you will experience unique moments in one of the most amazing cities in the world.

New Zealand

Kiwi spotting in a land of pioneers and adventurers
Kiwi spotting in a land of pioneers and adventurers

New Zealand lies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, in Oceania.

It is made up of two main islands: North Island and South Island, as well as numerous smaller islands such as the Chatham Islands. It is a sparsely populated country, full of surprises, rich in natural beauty and vast landscapes. 
A visit to the capital Wellington is a must; a lively and fun city with street musicians and colourful markets. However, New Zealand’s largest city is actually Auckland. Known as the “City of Sails” because of its strong links with the sea and all the activities connected to it, the city enjoys a privileged location between the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea. 
A visit to the Sky Tower is a must: from a height of 328 metres you can enjoy a wonderful view that extends for 80 kilometres. Half an hour from the city there are the forests of the Waitakere Ranges, where you can see thousand year old Kauri trees which have trunks with a diameter of several meters, and Piha, which will enchant you with its black volcanic sand beach, a popular destination for surfers from all over the world.
