Auckland’s city centre is one of New Zealand’s main docking points for cruise ships.

During the summer months, around 300,000 visitors arrive here across more than 150 ships, contributing to Auckland’s economy*

Our AKL in a Day, Your Guide to the Central City guide is designed to keep cruise visitors in the city centre for longer. 

We also highly recommend printing out the timetable on the Ports of Auckland website, so you can be aware of when there may be additional foot traffic in the central city. You can view the Ports of Auckland cruise ship timetable here.
