Best Time to Cruise
The best time to cruise in Australia and New Zealand is during the summer. Remember though that the seasons are reversed in this part of the world so summer would mean December to end February. At this time the weather is warm and wonderful!

Duration of Cruise
Cruise durations in the Australia and New Zealand region can range between 7 to 15 days and over. A repositioning cruise normally happens at the start and end of a season and depending on where the ship is coming from the voyage may be of a longer duration than normal. Australia also falls in the world cruise path, so it possible to embark from here on a cruise that may well be between 16 -100 days.
