Cruises from Auckland FAQ’s
Where do cruise ships leave from in Auckland?
Cruise ships from Auckland typically leave from either Princes Wharf or Queens Wharf. Have no fear, as both of these wharves are located right next to each other, so if you end up going to the wrong one, it’s just a quick taxi ride to the other. If you have some extra time before your cruise from Auckland, be sure to check out some of the local restaurants at Princes Wharf. While there, take some time basking in the gorgeous Auckland waterfront on one side or the impressive city skyline on the other. Otherwise, Auckland’s city centre is within walking distance from both Queens and Princes Wharf, allowing you to do some quick sightseeing (if you have the time) before your Auckland cruise!
How far is Auckland Airport from the Cruise Terminal?
The Auckland Airport is approximately a 30 minute taxi drive from both Queens Wharf and Princes Wharf. Bear in mind this travel time can increase to up to 50 minutes during peak, so plan your travel arrangements accordingly. Alternatively, cruise lines usually offer an option of a shuttle bus that will take you from the airport directly to where you need to be, taking out all the hassle with the logistics. Contact your cruise line once you’ve booked your cruises from Auckland to find out if this option is available for you.
If you wish to (potentially) save some money instead of taking an airport transfer, you can try your luck with booking either an external shuttle bus or taking public transport. External shuttle busses are usually at a cheaper cost (namely on return trips), however, may not drop you off exactly where you need to be. Similarly, taking public transport from the airport to the cruise terminal is by far the cheapest option. Nevertheless, travel times range wildly between 1-1.5 hours and may require you to make multiple transfers depending on the route you take. We advise that this option should only be done for those who know the area and don’t mind carrying your luggage fair distances.
