We also offer an easy two night off-ship overland option allowing guests to delve into the spectacular Southern Alps of New Zealand’s South Island to visit Queenstown and play Jack's Point.

Finally on arrival in Sydney we offer a three night post cruise package including play on two of its finest golf courses - The Lakes and New South Wales Golf Club, which offers both the ocean and the Sydney skyline as a background.

Embark Azamara Pursuit beginning at 1:00PM. All aboard by 3:30PM. 

Welcome Cocktails & Briefing this evening. Meet your fellow participants.

SIGHTSEEING: Auckland is the capital and most populous city in New Zealand. The only city in the world built on an active basaltic volcanic field;  its warm, coastal climate allows for surfing at black-sand beaches, picnics in secluded coves, or horseback riding.  Tour a sheep farm, take a guided tour of the coastal rainforest, or go on a harbor cruise. Immerse yourself in Auckland’s art, Māori culture, and history.  View the beauty of the coastline from above when you go hang gliding, or take a trip around the winemaking regions of either Matakana or Waiheke Island.

FEBRUARY 7, SUNDAY: WAITANGI, BAY OF ISLANDS, NEW ZEALAND (6:30AM / 6:30PM)

GOLF: Kauri Cliffs was designed and built by David Harman of Golf Course Consultants, Orlando, Florida. It is a par 72 championship golf course that measures 7,119 yards with a selection of  five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Tee selection is an important decision here, with gorges and fairways with some of the healthiest and thickest grass in the world making it easy to mount up a tally of lost balls. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland. KKauri Cliffs is currently ranked by Golf Digest as #39 among the top 100 in the world.

Short VIDEO - Kauri Cliffs Golf Course

SIGHTSEEING: Waitangi is the home of the Māori culture. If one of us walks right up, leans in close, and touches noses with you, don’t be alarmed. We’re just saying a friendly “hongi” hello. You may have seen the haka dance, which has been made famous by the New Zealand Rugby team before the start of a match or watched the movie Whale Rider. However when it comes to really understanding and appreciating the Māori culture and people, the best way to do so is visit Waitangi. Māori chiefs signed their 1840 accord with the British Crown at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, making it New Zealand’s most historic site. Not only does Waitangi honour the birthplace of a nation and offer stunning views of the Bay of Islands, but it also features cultural and musical performances, including, yes, the haka. So if you’ve ever wanted to dive into an absolute treasure trove of all things Māori, come with us to Waitangi.

<Kauri Cliffs

Kauri Cliffs was designed and built by David Harman of Golf Course Consultants, Orlando, Florida. It is a par 72 championship golf course that measures 7,119 yards / 6,510 metres with a selection of five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Tee selection is an important decision here, with gorges and fairways with some of the healthiest and thickest grass in the world making it easy to mount up a tally of lost balls. Fifteen holes view the Pacific Ocean, six of which are played alongside cliffs which plunge to the sea. The beautiful inland holes wind through marsh, forest and farmland. Kauri Cliffs is currently ranked by Golf Digest as #39 among the top 100 in the world.

<The Kinloch Club

The Kinloch Club is a recent addition to New Zealand’s golf selection, opening in 2007 as Jack Nicklaus’s signature course. Although the course is situated far inland it pays homage to British Links. Situated on volcanic terrain it seamlessly blends the raw links style into age old kiwi sheep farming territory, surrounded by craggy hills and scenic views of the imposing Lake Taupo. It is now considered by many golf experts to be the #1 course in New Zealand and is sure to give even the most experienced golfer a rugged test.

<Cape Kidnappers

Cape Kidnappers is consistently rated the #1 course in New Zealand and has received critical acclaim from around the golfing world. This Tom Doak design occupies a huge expanse of property, with the drive from the public road to the clubhouse taking you through a sheep and cattle station. The golf course is set on pristine land, wedged between the station and the huge cliffs of the Cape. The much photographed course has a number of holes separated by deep ravines which run down to the South Pacific Ocean. The course also offers commanding views over the wine region of Hawke's Bay and the nearby small port town of Napier.

<Christchurch Golf Club

Christchurch Golf Club has a proud history that dates back to 1873. The club is the second oldest in New Zealand and the fifth oldest outside the United Kingdom. Its Shirley Links course has held numerous New Zealand Open and Amateur Championships. In 1990 it hosted the World Amateur Team Championship. The course is renowned world-wide as a challenging championship course of the highest quality which offers a fair test of golf for both club and professional golfer. The Club Patron is former Club Champion Sir Bob Charles, New Zealand’s most successful professional golfer, best known for winning the 1963 British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes, England.

<Chisholm Links

Chisholm Links, located just outside Dunedin, is a genuine links course in the truest sense of the word and may well be considered the hidden gem of this golf voyage. Developed on reserve land in the 1930s, several of its holes occupy a magnificent headland wedged between two beaches. It is hole #9 which guests tend to remember most keenly with the tee clinging to the edge of a huge precipice high over picturesque Tomahawk Beach. The playability and character of the holes along with striking views over the Pacific Ocean and neighboring beaches make it a very special experience. The links have previously hosted the New Zealand Amateur Championship in 2003 plus three Australasian PGA Tour Events.

<Jack's Point

Jack's Point Golf Course, is situated between the majestic Lake Wakatipu and 2,300 vertical metres of the Remarkables Mountain Range. Jack's Point was named after a 19th century Māori local named Jack. He was awarded a medal from the Royal Humane Society of Britain after saving the life of a man when they had capsized in Lake Wakatipu in winter 1862, an extraordinary rescue. It traverses through wetland to the lake edge encountering steep bluffs, indigenous vegetation and wildlife. The course is not only one of the most spectacular in the world but with an 18 hole par 72 Championship course offers a challenging and lasting experience to any calibre of golfer.

<Tasmania

Tasmania Golf Club is surrounded by water on three sides and perched atop the picturesque Barilla Bluff. This scenic and enjoyable layout is routinely ranked among the top three in Tasmania. A frequent host of the Australian Amateur and Tasmanian Open, the club moved to its current location in 1971 with this course designed by noted architect Al Howard.

Important Information

Golf Handicap Limit: The golf courses we play around the world offer varying challenges. Players often require to be of a certain standard to properly and fully experience them in the company of likeminded fellow golfers. We therefore set a maximum permitted golf handicap to participate on our tours and cruises; The maximums are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Golf Courses: The included list may be subject to change in the event of any club accepting any conflicting national or international event, or for any other reason. Should such a situation occur, PerryGolf will endeavour to book a course of comparable standard, and all booked guests would be notified of the change and replacement venue at the earliest opportunity.

Transfers: No transfers are included to or from the ship at arrival/departure airports.
