Cruise ships

Cruise ships are currently banned from coming into New Zealand. You should avoid all non-essential travel including cruise ships.

Cruise ships are banned from coming into New Zealand until at least 30 June 2020. 

All people in New Zealand are advised to avoid all non-essential overseas travel, including cruises. The virus can spread quickly onboard cruises due to the close contact between passengers.  

Some cruise ships have been put into quarantine, and countries have denied entry to ports, which can have significant consequences for travellers.
