Milford Sound

9 of 24

Rudyard Kipling called Milford Sound “the
eighth wonder of the world,” and it’s hard to argue when you behold the
ethereal beauty of a waterway little changed since the Maori people discovered it
more than 1,000 years ago. In South Island’s Fjordland National Park, the sound
cuts through steep cliffs carved by glaciers. Your ship may get close enough to
a roaring waterfall for you to feel the spray.

Season: Year-round.

Sample Itinerary: 14-day New Zealand, round-trip from
Brisbane, Australia, on the 1,990-passenger Sun Princess. From $1,699 per person,
based on double occupancy.
