Seabourn's Australia & New Zealand ports map
We will sail Seabourn Encore under the stars of the Southern Cross, the constellation that graces the flags of lands as warm and welcoming, as unique, spirited and stunningly beautiful as the ship herself. The multi-colored miracle of the Great Barrier Reef, the sun-swept splendor of Sydney Harbour and the soaring majesty of Milford Sound make fitting backdrops for Seabourn Encore’s debut. Cultured, cosmopolitan Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington well suit her sophistication, while her elegant precision is reflected in the traditional Maori haka ritual. The rustic charm of Oban together with Dunedin’s Scottish heritage and Picton’s majestic coast lay the framework for a magnificent maiden season.

Featured Ports

Sydney, Australia

Arriving in Sydney Harbour by ship provides an unequaled impression, with the iconic white sail domes of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge punctuating the city’s skyline.

Auckland has harbors on two sides. Urban central Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbor on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbor on the Pacific Ocean.

Bora Bora is dominated by palatial Mt. Otemanu and Mt. Pahia, volcanic peaks with lush, verdant slopes. Its turquoise-blue lagoon is dotted with colorful motus, or coral islets.

Milford Sound, New Zealand

New Zealand's most famous tourist destination, Milford Sound is a part of the Fiordland National Park and the Te Wahipounamu UNESCO World Heritage site on the South Island.

A sophisticated city flanked by forests and golden beaches, Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda, and the Daintree Rain Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
