This was a nice shore excursion and allowed for time to walk in the gardens and go to the Museum.

A nice trip through the city with some history of the devastation of the earthquake in 2011 and a visit to a beautiful garden. We later toured some of the Botanic Garden on our own.

As the port at Christchurch is still closed to large cruise ships due to earthquake damage, our ship docked at Akaroa instead. We spent the day wandering the streets here. The Giants House was the highlight, a garden & sculptures of mosaics, much like Gaudi's work. Unique & well worth the visit. The old timber Church of St Patrick was also worth while.

It consists of a memorial to numerous former citizens, & the brass plaques of only two mounted on the memorial. Read Less

We stuck around Akaroa and again we were given no information on the port and we missed a good fish place by 100ms.
