After leaving Tonga we arrived in Auckland, New Zealand on February 5, 2015. The ship docks next to the Ferry Terminal, in downtown Auckland. To explore the city we rode on the Hop on Hop off bus which takes you to all the major attractions in the city. We enjoyed the native brick and colonial architecture that was seen throughout the city. At the Aukland Museum there is a wonderful collection of Maori crafts and carvings including a Maori meeting house and canoe. On the waterfront there is a promenade that goes along Quay Street which was a nice place to stroll in the afternoon.
