This excursion was a bit pricey and a bit average for us.The dancing and singing was great, and the hospitality was lovely but not interesting enough

Berthed right at the town waterfront. We took an independent 'Taste of Waiheke' wine tasting tour to Waiheke Island, which was very memorable for all the right reasons.

Investigated the CBD with some light shopping. Very good transport to and back from town.

We did our own thing in Auckland walked around the city going to sky city tower, what a view from the top, we also went to their Botanic Gardens, great to visit, so easy travelling around this city on public transport.

Took the HOHO and found it to be a small not air conditioned van from which viewing was very limited. It was a significant walk from the ship to the departure point, though on the return, it did stop closer to the ship. Because the ship got in at noon and the HOHO ends quite early, around 4:00, little or no chance to get off the bus. We did take both routes and again because of the type of vehicle, it was very difficult to see the sites. Read Less

The city was beautiful and clean. We did the Waiheke wine tasting. It was fun and if you want to see the beautiful countryside, this is the way to do it. No regrets.

Walk to the sky deck. An amazing view from 60 floors up. Kids did the outside walk. Not for the faint hearted. Take a walk of the wharf. Some amazine boats to be seen.

Guests who did the hop-on-hop-off bus said they were so crowded they couldn’t get on and had to wait 45 minutes for the next bus. Read Less

We had a private driver/guide to take to us to see the sights, including a lunch stop in Devonport. First time visit for my parents but we have been before.

I liked Auckland but I did not take a cruise excursion there. I likewise found my own hotel ahead of time.

We arrived at Auckland on Christmas Day so all the shops were shut. The i site staff were very helpful. I had found out before we left that the hop on and off bus would be running so knew we would at least get a tour of the city. Only half the tour was running, the blue line was closed, but they reduced the ticket price. The i site staff were also able to sell us tickets to the aquarium (small but well presented) and the sky tower. The sky tower was so busy and didn’t seem to have any staff to organise people in to lines of pre purchased tickets so there was extra waiting. The view from the top was amazing as there was very little cloud but still cold. It warmed up in the late afternoon. Read Less

Just another big city. My son commented that we could have been walking down the street in Sydney. Will organise to do something out of the city if we visit again.
