Sydney Australia Gay Cruise

 

Sydney, Australia

Australia Gay group cruise from Sydney, AustraliaConsidered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Southern Hemisphere, Sydney offers just about anything-from beaches and wineries to stunning landmarks and world-class shopping. Tour architectural marvels like the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, view life below the surface from Sydney Aquarium's underwater walkways, or take it all in from above on a tour of the Sydney Tower.

Bondi Beach
Australia's most famous beach draws visitors seeking sun, sand and surf - and also dining, theatre, films and festivals.

Harbour Bridge
Known locally as "the coat hanger," this single span, arch bridge was considered both an economical feat and an architectural triumph upon its completion in 1932.

Australia Gay group cruise Sydney, AustraliaMrs.MacQuarie's Chair
The wife of Australia's first governor enjoyed the spectacular views from this point. Visitors and locals alike are drawn here for the sweeping city and harbour views.

Paddington
Dating back to the 1840s, this Sydney suburb of steep hills is lined with classic Victorian-style houses.

Sydney Opera House
The city's most popular tourist attraction, the Opera House is actually a complex of theatres and halls. Its unique sail-like design makes it one of the most recognised buildings in the world.

The Rocks
Given its name due to the sandstone cliffs and bedrock, the site of Australia's first penal settlement is today an area rich in colonial history and vibrant with 5-star hotels, restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries, and museums.

 

Milford Sound, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Milford Sound, New ZealandMilford Sound, located in the southwest of New Zealand's South Island, is located within the Fiordland National Park. Formed by the erosive effects of a glacier, Milford Sound is in fact a fjord and is in some places up to 400 metres deep. Bounded by steep cliffs and dense rainforest with dramatic rivers and cascading waterfalls Milford Sound is a national icon of New Zealand. It runs 15 km inland from the Tasman Sea and is surrounded by sheer rock faces that rise 1200 m or more on either side. Among its most striking features are Mitre Peak, rising 1,692 m above the sound, the Elephant at 1,517 m and resembling an elephant's's head, and Lion Mountain, 1,302 m, in the shape of a crouching lion. Lush rain forests cling precariously to these cliffs, while seals, penguins and dolphins populate the water.

 

Doubtful Sound, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Doubtful Sound, New ZealandSometimes called the 'Sound of Silence' Doubtful Sound is the deepest (421 metres) and second longest (40 kilometres) of the South Island's fiords. It is a powerful place - serene, mysterious and untouched by the modern world.

The fiord was originally named Doubtful Harbour by Captain James Cook, who didn't sail into the inlet because it looked a bit tight for safe manoeuvring. It was later named Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers.

Like other fiords in the area, Doubtful Sound contains two distinct layers of water that don't mix. The top few meters is fresh water, fed by runoff from the surrounding mountains. Below this is a layer of salt water from the sea. The difference in refractive index between these two layers makes it difficult for light to penetrate. As a result, many deep-sea species - such as black coral - grow in the comparatively shallow depths.

Doubtful Sound has some splendid waterfalls, particularly during the wetter seasons. In the Hall Arm, the Browne Falls cascades 619 metres; Helena Falls at Deep Cove tumbles 220 metres. Wildlife is another reason to visit this fiord - keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins.

 

Dusky Sound, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Dusky Sound, New ZealandSteep cliffs that have been carved over centuries by dozens of waterfalls surround the largest and most complex of the many fjords along the New Zealand coast, Dusky Sound. It's also a wildlife paradise, with seals and dolphins patrolling the water, and birds like broad billed prions, mottled petrels and sooty shearwaters floating on the overhead thermals.

Dusky Sound is a fjord on the south west corner of New Zealand, in Fiordland National Park. One of the most complex of the many fjords on this coast, it is also one of the largest, 40 kilometres in length and eight kilometres wide at its widest point. To the north of its mouth is the large Resolution Island, whose Five Fingers Peninsula shelters the mouth of the sound from the northwest. Along the east coast of the island, Acheron passage connects Dusky Sound with Breaksea Sound, to the north.

Several large islands lie in the sound, notably Anchor Island, Long Island, and Cooper Island. Sightseeing highlights include the hundreds of waterfalls cascading into the sound during the rainy season, seals and dolphins. Bird and wildlife sanctuaries are also attractions with sightings of Curlew, Shag, Petrel, Pigeon and Parrot Isles; Shag River; Seal Rock; Goose, Duck and Woodhen Coves.

 

Dunedin, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Dunedin, New Zealand Were it not for the absence of the Scottish brogue, you might think you'd landed in Edinburgh. Both the scenery and the architecture borrow heavily from Scotland. You can even shop for kilts or dig into a piece of fresh haggis. Dunedin is also home to New Zealand's only castle, a 15-year construction endeavor complete with the only staircase of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and magnificent woodwork.

Dunedin is a bustling university city, located at the head of the long, narrow and wonderfully picturesque Otago Harbour. Originally a Presbyterian Scottish settlement, this second-largest city in the South Island retains a distinct Scottish ambience. It is known for its grand 19th century public buildings and homes reflecting the wealth derived from the goldfields in the interior of the Otago Province in the 1860s.

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Dunedin, New ZealandThe early arrivals of settlers in Dunedin and the anticipated growth of the gold rush obliged the authorities in Britain to undertake some hasty planning. Plans for a classic 19th century English town were quickly drawn-up in England without regards to the actual topography of the land. As a result many of the streets in the city go straight up very steep hills. Dunedin actually boasts the steepest street in the world as recorded by the Guinness Book of Records. Fortunately the city center is largely unaffected.

The Otago Peninsula that protects the harbor is also a haven for wildlife seldom seen so close to a major city. Best known is the royal albatross colony, at Taiaroa Head, and the yellow-eyed penguins, both have received international recognition.

 

Akaroa, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise - Akaroa, New Zealand Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano, Akaroa is rich with beautiful bays, French and English colonial history, even the largest little penguin colony on the mainland. It's also home to the rarest and smallest marine dolphin and lots of water sports-kayaking, sailboats, also hiking paths and cycle tours. Pick up a unique souvenir from one of the many local craft shops and boutiques.

Christchurch
From the moment you step onshore, you'll understand why locals long ago tabbed this the "Garden City." Lush gardens and parks punctuate well-spaced avenues and squares, all adorned with Victorian architecture. Of particular note is the 57-acre Christchurch Botanic Gardens, which features wide-open lawns, some of New Zealand's oldest trees, and a thriving population of ducks. At the center of town is Christchurch Cathedral, a stunning example of Gothic Revival architecture.

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise - Christchurch, New ZealandChristchurch, the "Gateway to the South Island" is on the east coast and is surrounded by the province of Canterbury. The city is bordered by hills and the Pacific Ocean, and is situated on the edge of the Canterbury Plains. Best known as the Garden City, the city is renowned for its expansive gardens and tree-lined avenues. Christchurch's unique blend of contemporary and neo-gothic architecture sets the scene for a city that prides itself on arts, culture, festivals and events.

To the west, beyond the extensive alluvial plain, are the imposing Southern Alps and Arthur's Pass National Park; to the north, beyond the rolling hills, are Hanmer and more forest parks; and to the south-east is the absorbing Banks Peninsula.

A short drive away is Lyttelton, the Port of Christchurch/ Canterbury. Lyttelton Harbour, crater of a long extinct volcano, offers visitors spectacular scenery, Maori and European history and an abundance of activities. The township of Lyttelton offers banking/foreign exchange, telephones, shops, restaurants/bars, taxis, public transport, postal facilities, and a visitor information center.

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Christchurch, New ZealandCanterbury Museum
This fine museum, on Rolleston Ave. at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens. Particularly interesting are the early colonist exhibits and the Antarctic Discovery section. Christchurch is the headquarters for "Operation Deep Freeze," the supply link to Antarctica. There is also a gallery called "Ancient People – New Land", which features displays of the now extinct Moa and the early Polynesians who hunted them. Included in this informative exhibit are three life-size dioramas, a crawl-in sinkhole cave and computer information system.

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu
Located on the corner of Worcester Blvd and Montreal Street. The gallery hosts one of New Zealand's largest art collections including a fantastic selection of works by Canterbury artists.

The Arts Centre of Christchurch,
formerly the University of Canterbury town site, has been transformed into the biggest arts center in New Zealand. It's worth a look, even if just to see the beautiful old buildings. New Zealand has a lot of good handicraft centers producing some fine pottery, jewelry and other crafts, and Christchurch is particularly well represented. The Arts Centre has everything from handmade toys to Maori carvings, a couple of good restaurants and a good bookshop.

Christchurch Cathedral
Built of native stone, the cathedral is the finest Gothic-style Church in New Zealand.

 

Tauranga, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay group cruise visiting Tauranga, New ZealandKnown as the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga is located at the entrance to one of the largest natural harbors in New Zealand. You can take a ride on a bush jet boat, go white-water rafting on the Rangitaiki River, or dine on the freshest fish and chips you'll ever taste, served al fresco. If you're looking for a more exotic counter, travel to the Mount Mauganui Hot Salt Water Pools.

Tauranga's majestic Mauao (Mount Maunganui) marks the harbor entrance of the Bay of Plenty region, with Tauranga as its main center. The Bay of Plenty is aptly named – it has a wide range of recreational activities, a mild climate, New Zealand's most popular beaches, and the world's first kiwifruit orchards. The Port of Tauranga has a full range of services available, with only a short stroll to the Mount Maunganui shopping center and banks. Also, within walking distance of the port are two magnificent beaches – the inner harbor has a gentle beach, while on the ocean side is a well-known surf beach.

New Zealand Gay cruise RotoruaRotorua, perhaps best known for its geothermal activity, is only a 1.5 hour drive from Tauranga. For nearly 150 years the thermal wonders of Rotorua have lured visitors. Bubbling mud pools, silicone terraces and other earthly forces capture the imagination of all visitors. There is no better place in New Zealand for people to experience first hand the arts and crafts of the Maori people. From carving and weaving to song and dance, there are endless opportunities to experience the warmth and friendliness of the Maori in Rotorua.

 

Auckland, New Zealand

Australia and New Zealand Gay Group cruise from Auckland, New Zealand Your official welcome to New Zealand comes by way of a bustling harbor. Step ashore and into a surprisingly cosmopolitan environment. And once you venture inland, even more surprises await, including a total of 48 dormant volcanoes, a lush, leafy urban cityscape filled with beautiful parks, and a number of renowned art galleries.

Wellington may be New Zealand's capital but Auckland is the most important city and is the country's major gateway for ship and air traffic moving between Oceania and North or South America. Auckland is also designated as the largest city in the country with nearly 1.3 million residents. Built atop a cluster of extinct volcanoes, the municipality is located on a constricted isthmus that helps the landscape blend nicely with the city's modern skyline.

Auckland has a reputation of being old-fashioned and traditional which visitors find refreshing. The polite manner of the local people and the cleanliness of the streets are what help to keep visitors returning year after year. Auckland were hosts to the "Americas Cup," the most revered trophy in the sport of yachting. With Team New Zealand's' win over Italy's Prada Challenge in March of 2000, this country became the first to successfully defend the Cup outside the U.S. The Cup activity around Auckland's waterfront has transformed the area into one of the most fashionable eating areas in the city, which was already renowned for its International restaurants.

Australia and New Zealand Gay Group cruise from Auckland, New ZealandAuckland Museum
Located in the Auckland Domain offers an excellent display of Maori artifacts and culture including an 82 foot (25 meter) long war canoe. The museum also houses a fine collection of South Pacific items and New Zealand wildlife including a giant Moa model and exhibits from around the world.

Auckland Art Gallery
Located atWellesley and Lorne Streets and Wellesly and Kitchener Streets is New Zealand's first permanent art gallery opened in 1888. The country's most significant collections of New Zealand and European art, over 10,000 works, are housed in the gallery's two buildings.

Sky Tower
Located on the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets. At 1,176 feet (328 meters), the Sky Tower is the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere. Three observation levels (including and outdoor deck) offer superb panoramic views of Auckland cityscape and beyond. "Orbit" is the brasserie-style revolving restaurant in the tower. Sky City is designed to be a New Zealand experience. Its indigenous theme is carried throughout the complex with commissioned works representing different aspects of New Zealand's heritage, drawing on Maori legend and early settlement. Murals and sculptures by leading New Zealand contemporary artists have a spectacular visual and physical presence.

Hobson Wharf Maritime Museum
Located harborside at the Viaduct Basin, on the corner of Quay and Hobson Streets. This museum on the downtown waterfront is dedicated to one of New Zealand's national obsession – sailing. This extensive museum is a must for lovers of the sea and explores 1,000 years of the seafaring history of this Pacific island nation.

Australia and New Zealand Gay Group cruise from Auckland, New ZealandAuckland Zoological Park
One of New Zealand's leading family attractions set in stunning park-like surroundings. Spend a day exploring native New Zealand bush, African grasslands or a subtropical rainforest. Over 1,500 native and exotic animals including kiwi, tuatara, elephants, rhino, giraffe, monkeys and lions.

Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World
Kelly Tarlton's is a unique aquarium housed in old stormwater holding tanks. An acrylic tunnel runs through the aquarium and you travel through on a moving footpath, with the fish swimming all around you. You can step off at any time to take a better look and the whole place is designed to recreate the experience of scuba diving around the coast of New Zealand. Located at 23 Tamaki Drive, 3.75 miles (6 km) from downtown.

Rangitoto Volcanic Islands
Rangitoto is just 6 miles (10 km) northeast of the city. The youngest of the 50 or so volcanic cones in the Auckland region, Rangitoto rose from the sea only about 600 years ago, in a series of volcanic explosions. Rangitoto is a good place for a picnic. It has lots of pleasant walks, a saltwater swimming pool, BBQs near the wharf and a great view from the summit of the 853 foot (260 meter) cone. Lava caves are another attraction. The hike from the wharf to the summit takes about an hour. Up at the top a loop walk goes around the crater's rim. The walk to the lava caves branches off the summit walk and takes 15 minutes one way. A tractor train tour also meets the ferry and goes to the summit for a charge.

 

Bay of Islands, New Zealand

New Zealand Gay cruise Bay of IslandsDiscover indigenous New Zealand Maori culture in a land of sparkling seas and pristine beauty. Bay of Islands is a sub-tropical paradise of clear blue water, hundreds of undeveloped islands, diverse wildlife, and historical significance. The pristine oceans, warm weather, and many animal species attract nature lovers from around the globe. Take an eco-cruise and discover the area’s dolphins, penguins, marlins, whales, and bird life. Journey into a beautiful cave with majestic rock formations and glow worms. Kayak, sail, swim, or sunbathe on one of the many beaches.

Those who love beaches consider these in Bay of Islands & New Zealand some of the world’s finest, with their perfect white sand and crystal-clear water. And as tempted as you’ll be to pull up a lounge chair and soak in the surroundings, many consider a Bay of Islands cruise the ideal time to partake in more active pursuits, such as kayaking, mountain-biking, parasailing, swimming with dolphins and scuba-diving.

Celebrity Solstice Lawn Club

 

Patio on the Lawn
Luxury adopts a casual, country club charm at the Patio on the Lawn. Overlooking the beautiful The Lawn Club, it's an ideal place to read the morning paper, your current novel, or enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee with friends.

The Lawn Club
A freshly manicured lawn on the highest deck. Enjoy casual outdoor activities in a decidedly Country Club atmosphere, and let the grass between your toes take you places no cruise has gone before.

 

Celebrity Solstice Sunset Bar

 

Sunset Bar
This popular spot on the Solstice Class ships anchors one end of the Lawn Club, the first half-acre of real grass on a cruise ship, on the highest deck. Spectacular views and a casual country club atmosphere make this a relaxing ritual every evening. Watch the sun set on the water accompanied by pop and folk tunes from a live guitarist. Enjoy an award-winning Eureka cocktail created by Celebrity's own Bacardi Bartender of the Year.

Solstice Deck
When you arrive at the highest point on the ship, you won't be disappointed. Whether you're looking for the ideal spot to do some early morning yoga, stretch out on a canopied lounge bed, or for the best view of the beautiful starry sky to cap off another magical evening aboard, The Solstice Deck is where your search ends and the relaxation begins.
