    Wellington, 7.00 – 19.00 hrs

    Wellington/New Zealand
    The gently rolling green hills may well remind film fans of the film of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels. It’s hardly surprising that “Wellywood” has developed into the centre of New Zealand’s film industry in recent years. The charming city of Wellington* has an exciting story of its own to tell, with the views from Mount Victoria* or at the Te Papa Tongarewa national museum, where you can see the country’s treasures. The Zealandia* sanctuary is like a journey back in time through the country’s pristine forests. In this lovingly reforested reserve, native birds and animals threatened with extinction are well protected.

    Friday, 10.02.2017

    Nelson, 7.00 – 19.00 hrs

    Nelson/New Zealand
    This idyllic city on Tasman Bay attracts plenty of artists and soul searchers with its charming wooden houses from the colonial era and Christ Church Cathedral built in the art deco style. The waves break gently on the golden sands of Abel Tasman National Park*, and in the surrounding rainforests you can hear a chorus of colourful birds. On a hike* to Pitt Head, you can explore New Zealand’s smallest national park with its amazing natural panoramas. On a kayak tour* along the picturesque coastline, you can see the beautiful scenery from the water.

    Mount Maunganui (Tauranga)/New Zealand
    Like a green lighthouse, the extinct volcano of Mount Maunganui watches over the Bay of Plenty and the city of Tauranga, which stretches along a sand bank. Take a hike* on the mountain and learn all about its ancient legends. One of New Zealand’s many natural phenomena will hold you spellbound in the Rotorua* geothermal area, with geysers shooting water 20 m into the air and brightly coloured pools of hot water.

The excursion to Waitangi* takes you over historic ground: in Treaty House, the first peace treaty between the Maori and the British was signed in 1840, heralding the birth of New Zealand. You can also walk through the grounds to visit the Maori meeting house with its intricate wood carvings.

    Norfolk Island/Australia, 7.00 – 17.00 hrs

    Norfolk Island/Australia
    When James Cook arrived here in 1774, he found an uninhabited island and called it “paradise”. Still today, only about 2,000 people live on the tiny island, which you can explore on your own and see its tropical vegetation and amazing views at Norfolk Island National Park. The island also has an interesting history: at the Kingston and Arthur’s Vale Historic Area, you can see what life must have been like in an 18th-century penal colony.

    Our Vitality at Sea activity programme pays special attention to your health. Take part in lectures and courses, which will vary according to each cruise and are offered in conjunction with some well-known partners, and treat yourself to some refreshing time out far away from everyday life.

    Opera ball

    Once again this year, the on-board programme will be determined by the waves in waltz time as we say "Let the waltz begin." Whilst the debutantes take to the floor for the magnificent Opera Ball at the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna, the officers and crew members on board will start their dance thousands of nautical miles away. Here, in the midst of a sea of flowers and a venue decorated especially for the event, you can dance the night way in evening dress. At the EUROPA Opera Ball, you will also be treated to culinary delights to rival those served in Vienna.
