What to do in Auckland when you arrive by cruise ship
When arriving in Auckland by cruise ship, be sure to disembark and explore! The compact city centre sits right on the harbour's edge awaiting your arrival. There's so much to see in central Auckland and if you'd like to experience some of Auckland's hidden wonders, a short, scenic ferry ride will have you discovering one or two of more than 50 island gems in Auckland's majestic Hauraki Gulf.
