DreamBreak Cruise: Spend Christmas & New Year’s Down Under

‘Tis the season to sail away to New Zealand & Australia on a 12-night cruise aboard the Celebrity Solstice®. (This trip does not include a host.)

About Your Trip

Price displayed above is per person based on double occupancy for the inside cabin and does not include US$225.96 in government fees and taxes per person. Upgraded cabin categories are available at an additional cost. Click “Update Price” for final price per person, which includes government fees and taxes.



Escape the everyday with a well-deserved DreamBreak and enjoy your DreamTrips™ Membership a different way — on your own, instead of in a group! Your DreamBreak does not include a host, so you can create your own adventures, your way.

After boarding the Celebrity Solstice in Sydney, Australia, you’ll set off on a picture-perfect 12-night holiday cruise to ports in New Zealand and Australia.

But first, celebrate Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at sea, doing as much — or as little — as you want! Experience magic when you step out onto the top deck — real, manicured grass! — at the world’s only Lawn Club on the water. Feel like a kid again as you play outdoor games, enjoy a picnic or simply feel the grass between your toes. Once hunger strikes, you’ll find plenty of outstanding dining options — from traditional Japanese fare at Sushi on Five to contemporary French and everything in between. Over at Cellar Masters, you can discover new vintages with special wine tastings.

Once you reach New Zealand, you’ll drop anchor in fabulous Picton, a great place to relax with cafes, galleries and restaurants. Then, you’ll head north to Napier, the renowned wine-making region of Hawke’s Bay. Your journey continues to New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, where you can go for a ride on the historic red cable car or meander around the waterfront. Then it’s onto historic Akaroa on the South Island — known for its colonial architecture — followed by Dunedin. A mecca for food, Dunedin offers everything from Thai and Japanese to some of the freshest seafood you can find. 

On New Year’s Eve, you’ll sail through one of the most picturesque places in the world — Fiordland National Park (Te Wahipounamu), a UNESCO World Heritage site. Get your camera ready for incredible views of snowcapped alpine mountains, forested valleys and glacier-carved fjords as you glide through Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and Dusty Sound.

After spending 2 more days — including New Year’s Day! — at sea, you’ll make your last stop in Newcastle, Australia’s second-oldest city, before arriving back in Sydney to disembark with memories to last a lifetime!

What we love:

• You can stroll along the attractive Wellington Waterfront (just a 5-minute walk away), home to a bustling scene of restaurants, bars, shops, parks, water sports and more. 
• Around-the-clock onboard entertainment options include comedy shows, live music, dance, theater and more. Looking for something different? Head to Canyon Ranch SpaClub® for a variety of wellness services and treatments, including massage, skin care, a full-service salon and more.
• Your cruise begins and ends in Sydney, home to the Sydney Opera House, Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Harbour Bridge across the world’s largest natural harbor. 
• You can maximize your enjoyment on dry land too! Just download the DreamTrips app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select port-city spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!
