    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.

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 and Breaksea Sound)

    Thundering waterfalls flow into the fjords, and imposing peaks are reflected in deep-blue bays. Right at the beginning of your expedition, one of the world’s greatest nature reserves awaits you on New Zealand’s South Island: Fjordland National Park.

    Thursday, 05.03.2020

    Milford Sound

    Marvel at the evergreen slopes of Dusky and Breaksea Sound, before the BREMEN spends a day in the famous Milford Sound. British writer Rudyard Kipling aptly described it as the “eighth wonder of the world”. Covered in overgrown rainforests, the escarpments rise more than 1,100 m (3,600 ft) out of the water, an almost magical fog floating between the mountain peaks.

    Friday, 06.03.2020

    Stewart Island

    The mountainous national park on Stewart Island is just as outstanding. The natural canvas of dense forests and numerous bays will thrill you on a hike to Ackers Point* with impressive views across Halfmoon Bay. With a little luck, you will see sooty shearwater and blue penguins here.

    Saturday, 07.03.2020 to
    Wednesday, 11.03.2020

    New Zealand’s South Island (Dunedin, Lyttelton, Kaikoura Bay , Kaiteriteri , Marlborough Sounds )

    You can also discover New Zealand’s rich bird life in Dunedin: southern royal albatrosses and yellow-eyed penguins will greet you as you explore the breathtaking scenery during your visit to the Otago Peninsula*. For many European immigrants, the small harbour of Lyttelton was their first point of call in their new home. For you, this will be the starting point for a cruise to New Zealand’s green soul: the TranzAlpine train to Arthur’s Pass* weaves through wide valleys and deep gorges. Wild animals, untouched forests and majestic fjords: your expedition days will be full of exciting tours of discovery. Kaikoura Bay is a paradise for seals and seabirds. With a little luck, you might also see some whales during the Zodiac landing. The most beautiful facets of nature will be revealed in Kaiteriteri on a hike in Abel Tasman National Park*. Rainforests and rugged granite cliffs give the park’s coastline its picturesque outline. Again and again, wonderful bays and fine, sandy beaches invite you to relax. Exploring the coast by kajak* will allow you to experience the many sides of the national park from a different perspective. An unforgettable expedition day also awaits you in the Marlborough Sounds, a sprawling labyrinth of waterways with countless islands and bays. Subject to official approval, follow in the footsteps of James Cook in Ship Cove, once the anchorage point for his vessel, the Endeavour, or – if the conditions are good – land with the Zodiacs on Motuara Island, home to numerous native species of bird. The BREMEN will then cruise through Queen Charlotte Sound to provide further impressive views.

    New Zealand’s North Island (Wellington, Napier, cruising off White Island, Mount Maunganui, Great Barrier Island )

    Wellington will welcome you to New Zealand’s North Island. If the weather is good, discover the spectacular landscape around the capital on a helicopter flight*. Gain insights into the native bird life of the kakas and takahe in the Kapiti Island Nature Reserve*. The BREMEN will stay here overnight, which gives you the opportunity to experience the charms of this metropolis at your own pace during the evening. In the style of art deco, Napier is a feast for the eyes, and not just for fans of architecture. From here, explore the vineyards of Hawke’s Bay* in the “Tuscany of New Zealand”. The gannet colony on Cape Kidnappers*, the bizarre stretch of land at the southern end of Hawke’s Bay, is an eldorado for bird watching. You will also marvel at the drama of a pristine natural world when the BREMEN cruises off White Island, New Zealand’s only volcanic island that is still active. Similar primeval forces shape the view from Mount Maunganui of Rotorua, New Zealand’s thermal area* with bubbling pools, steaming fissures and colourful lakes. Great Barrier Island is a small paradise with brilliant white beaches and untouched natural beauty. Erosion has created some true masterpieces here. After the hike to the Kaitoke Hot Springs*, enjoy a dip in the warm water, surrounded by greenery. Which of the many natural experiences from this cruise will remain etched in your memory? The answer is already clear: all of them.
