Australia Stories

What an amazing experience! We visited Melbourne and Burnie AUS, and Wellington, Napier, Tauranga, Auckland and Bay of Islands NZ. And of course, the NCL Jewel crew made our cruise most enjoyable. We always look forward to seeing crew members we met on other NCL ships; they make you genuinely feel like family. We look forward to our next cruise.
