We did this cruise January 2005. You will love it. The ship is one of the bigger ones in the Princess fleet - plenty of things to do on the sea days. I am not sure what you want to know specifically about the ship. She is big and beautiful. We didn't do any tours because we had been to everywhere in NZ before so we basically just caught the shuttle buses into towns and wandered around. Christchurch is a beautiful city with the river Avon meandering through the middle. You can go on gondola rides. When you do to Dunedin, go and do the tour of the castle and the Albatross Colony. You can also do a tour of the Cadbury Chocolate factory in Dunedin. Tasmania was interesting - its one state we hadn't visited. Hobart is full of historical buildings and we found it very interesting. Mummsie

Nancy: Thank you so much for your assistance!!!

My question was: We will be in ports of Tauranga, Christchurch and Dunedin in New Zealand and then to Hobart, Tasmania. We enjoy the outdoors & seeing animals. Am curious to know if anyone who has sailed this particular route on Princess might recommend a shore excursion.
