Bucketeer Hosted Hobbit Express Cruise January 2023


Please call for prices

Come with us on January 26, 2023 when we sail south to New Zealand and Australia on a Bucketeer Adventure.

12 Night cruise, Auckland, New Zealand to Sydney, Australia

Our floating luxury retreat will be the award winning Celebrity Eclipse.

We escorted our very first group to New Zealand and Australia back in 2014. Our 2022 cruise was cancelled due to Covid, so now we’re looking forward to returning in 2023.

The highlights of New Zealand are all about the scenery, fine wines, hobbits, local culture and friendly locals. It’s what makes this remote nation so enchanting and unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.

Our cruise will end in Sydney, Australia. We will be delighted to design for you a custom post cruise package so you may experience Australia in style.

Please call us at 804-557-3006 for details.
