New Zealand Wraps Up Strong 2016-2017 Cruise Season

Oceania SirenaThe last ship of the 2016-2017 cruise season sailed out of the Bay of Islands on Monday, marking the end of another very busy summer for Cruise New Zealand and its port members, according to a statement.

The Sirena is the last of 41 ships from 22 cruise lines to visit New Zealand this season, Cruise New Zealand Executive Officer Kevin O’Sullivan said.

“During this cruise season, those 41 ships have made 760 calls to 31 locations, with an expected benefit to the New Zealand economy of $490m spread across our regions,” O’Sullivan noted.

“Cruise ships in our ports contribute to the vibrancy of New Zealand’s cities and have become very much a part of the scenery. Cruise New Zealand states that the numbers of guests enjoying New Zealand on a cruise will continue to increase in future seasons.”
