    Your ship - MS BREMEN

    Your personal expedition

    Having been awarded four stars by the Berlitz Cruise Guide 2018, the BREMEN is the perfect setting for a truly personal expedition with no more than 155 guests. The wonderful experiences of nature that you will enjoy on your cruise are also reflected in the ship’s ambience. A concept in which our architects and designers break new ground to create a special sense of well-being. With carpets, patterns and materials which reflect the animal and plant kingdoms in their appearance and an awe-inspiring chandelier shaped like a school of fish, enjoy an extraordinarily authentic ship with true character.

    Fjordland National Park
    (cruising in Dusky, Breaksea and Milford Sound)

    It is one of the most magnificent nature reserves in the world - marvel at the evergreen hillsides of Dusky and Breaksea Sound as we cruise through the Fiordland National Park. The BREMEN will be spending a considerable amount of time in the famous Milford Sound. The steep rock faces overgrown with rainforest rise out of the crystal-clear water to heights of up to 1,200 m, the fog almost magically hovers between the mountain peaks. The terrific landscape is crowned by the craggy Mitre Peak. With the BREMEN, you will experience these miracles of nature as intensively as possible. If the weather is favourable, you will even set out directly from the ship on unforgettable helicopter flights* to enjoy the mountain world from a bird's eye view. 

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Stewart Island

    The helicopter will also enable you to discover New Zealand's presumably best-kept secret Stewart Island when you explore Paterson Inlet from above*. Alternatively, you may wish to head for the bird sanctuary Ulva Island* in the company of experienced rangers - the lush green rainforest is home to a large number of representatives of New Zealand's abundant bird world. 

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Dunedin, from 7.00 to 14.00 hrs

    You can continue to watch the latter as you set out from Dunedin, a city with gorgeous architecture, to see the royal albatrosses and yellow-eyed penguins on the Otago Peninsula*.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Lyttelton (Christchurch), from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    The port of Lyttelton is a flooded volcanic crater, and the Banks Peninsula, which you will get to know on the excursion Picturesque Akaroa*, also owes its idyllic green landscape to volcanic eruptions. In the sheltered bay with the turquoise blue sea, you may catch sight of sea lions and dolphins. Or you enjoy the spectacular countryside on the way to Arthur's Pass* as well as magnificent views across the mountains and the highland while travelling on the legendary TranzAlpine train.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Kaikoura Bay

    Unforgettable moments in fantastic natural settings also await you in the course of the following days with numerous Zodiac rides and tours of discovery. Start out by discovering Kaikoura Bay where, besides seals and dolphins, you may also spot whales with a little luck. 

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Abel Tasman National Park

    In the small, but impressive Abel Tasman National Park, the local conditions determine our activities - the options range from a walk through the park with its extensive forests via a hike along the coast to relaxed hours on the beach. 

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Marlborough Sounds

    Eventually, you will reach the Marlborough Sounds, a huge and complex labyrinth of waterways with countless islands and bays - virtually made for an exciting expedition day with intense experiences. For instance when you follow the traces of James Cook in Ship Cove, where his "Endeavour" once lay at anchor, or, given favourable conditions, you land on Motuara Island, which is home to New Zealand fur seals and endemic birds. For further unforgettable sights, the BREMEN will subsequently cruise through Queen Charlotte Sound.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Wellington, from 8.00 to 20.00 hrs

    If you wish to experience the breathtaking landscape from yet another perspective, you can set out from Wellington, New Zealand's snug capital, on a helicopter flight to the Marlborough Sounds*. Victorian buildings and the marvellous view from Mount Victoria will captivate you on the excursion Wellington presents itself*. Or you could join a hike in the natural paradise Kapiti Island*, where you will look out for rare native birds together with the experts.

    Relaxation at sea

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Napier, from 7.00 to 19.00 hrs

    For further bird observations at close range, you may wish to visit the famous gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers*, to which you will travel from Napier. Why time in the latter does not seem to have begun until the 1930s although it is significantly older is something you will learn on the walk through the Art Deco district*.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Cruising off White Island

    In the language of the Maori, White Island is called "dramatic volcano" - and you will immediately understand why as we cruise off the coast of the country's only still active volcanic island. 

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Tauranga, from 6.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Starting out from the popular holiday resort Tauranga, you will explore Rotorua - New Zealand's thermal centre*. There, bubbling mud pools and steaming crevices provide graphic evidence of the force of nature.

    Wednesday, 15.08.2018

    Great Barrier Island
    Auckland/New Zealand,
