Napier City Drive


Learn why Napier was hailed the ‘Art Deco City’ on an hour long orientation city tour’. Napier was rebuilt in the early 1930s, following a major earthquake. The new buildings reflected the style of the times, Stripped Classical, Spanish Mission, Art Deco, and some incorporated unique Maori motifs. Your drive will discuss the city’s history and stories including the devastating 1931 earthquake as you follow the seashore along Marine Parade. Pass the sunken gardens, National Aquarium, Spirit of Napier, and Art Deco buildings. Continue through Napier’s suburbs for views of the city and Hawkes Bay. Travel through the Marewa District, noted for its many Deco homes and superb gardens. Special Notes: At the end of the tour, stop at the Napier visitors centre. Guests may choose to have free time for further sightseeing and shopping. A complimentary shuttle is available for the return to the ship. Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and bring bottled water.
