FROM OUR DESK
Ponant, our cruise partner, has now been given the green light to proceed with their domestic New Zealand yacht cruises with their luxury vessel Le Lapérouse. We talked about these in an earlier edition of ATPI News but please note that the dates have changed to February and March 2021.
The New Zealand Government has fully vetted this operation and Ponant has created a ‘sanitary domestic bubble’ for these cruises. We understand that this short cruise series is only available to New Zealanders who have been here for more that 14-days and these cruises will go on sale to the public after 05 January.
This is your chance to explore the New Zealand coast line, the Sounds and our sub-Antarctic Islands in all-inclusive luxury. Le Lapérouse is limited by New Zealand regulations to 100 passengers despite being able to accommodate 190 and so space on board will be generous.
