Cruises to Auckland
Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, and has earned itself the nickname “the City of Sails”. With more boats per capita than any other country in the world, it truly is a water lover’s paradise.
This British colonial settlement came into existence in 1840 when the site was chosen by the first governor, Lieutenant William Hobson, and was purchased from the local Ngati Whatua Maori chiefs. The city’s history remains evident in its stately old buildings, which have been restored to their Victorian elegance.
