Australia & New Zealand Odyssey

Star Breeze

January 10 - February 4, 2023

Discover the wonders and beauty of Australia and New Zealand on this lengthy cruise on Windstar's Star Breeze, allowing you to dive deep and truly discover this incredible region. Set sail from Auckland, New Zealand's bustling biggest city, and voyage to Tauranga as you make your way around the north eastern corner of the North Island to Wellington. Explore the delights of this hilly capital city, from its bright red cable cars and windy waterfront views to world-class art at Te Papa Museum. Next, you'll cross the Cook Strait to the South Island of New Zealand, stopping in Picton to enjoy the Marlborough region, famed for its wine cultivation. Sail along the eastern coast of the South Island, stopping in Christchurch and Dunedin, known for their stunning architecture, beaches, and dolphin and penguin viewing opportunities. You'll then have the opportunity to explore the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Fiordland, where craggy glaciers meet plunging waterfalls and majestic fjords. Cross the Tasman Sea to Tasmania, the small but jam-packed island where you'll be able to explore beautiful beaches at Freycinet National Park, the hip and vibrant city of Hobart, and exemplary cuisine in Burnie. Sail on to mainland Australia, stopping at Phillip Island along the way, known for its colonies of adorable penguins and seals. 

Set sail on Windstar's luxurious Star Pride for this all-encompassing tour of the Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean, visiting some of the most beloved and important ports of the region. Embark from Athens and stop by some of the iconic Greek isles like Santorini and Mykonos before visiting Istanbul, the fascinating city where east meets west. From there, the Star Pride will enter the Black Sea, where you'll have the opportunity to visit ports rarely visited by cruises like Odessa, Sochi, and Batumi before disembarking back in Istanbul.
