Princess Cruises proudly presents Across the Ditch, an immersive program designed to bring guests the very best of New Zealand. Our program brings authentic Maori experiences, culture and local flavors onboard and ashore to showcase what makes New Zealand so unique. With more New Zealand wines, beers, entertainment, enrichment (including the Matariki Festival) and more Shore Excursions than ever before, you’ll have the chance to enjoy even more of this fascinating country as you journey Across the Ditch on a New Zealand cruise.

“Across the Ditch” is an affectionate term for crossing the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand and vice versa – known colloquially as “the Ditch”.

On a cruise to and from Auckland, delight at the sight of glittering glowworms inside Auckland’s Waitomo Grotto, and enjoy an exclusive kiij at Māori and Polynesian exhibits in Auckland. Travel along Akaroa’s Southern Alps, and see white-flippered blue penguins and New Zealand fur seals on a cruise through Akaroa Harbour. On itineraries with More Ashore Late Night calls, we stay until at least 9 p.m. in port so you can experience some of the fabulous nightlife.

And with a range of Discovery Recommended and Exclusive excursions available only with Princess Cruises, you’ll see New Zealand in a whole new way.
