Reward yourself and discover parts of New Zealand few people get to see; Marlborough Sounds, Stewart Island and Fiordland.

Small Ship Cruising takes you further and close up to places that larger vessels can not get to. Affinity's smaller size means we can navigate through narrow waterways, shallow bays and areas where bigger ships cannot go.

Small vessels like Affinity allow you to experience places where nature and history remain untarnished, and where the crowds of tourists aren't everywhere you look. Places where you will meet the locals and discover how they live in remote and beautiful surroundings.

With a maximum of 16 passengers on each overnight cruise every guest is welcomed and known as an individual onboard our homely vessel. You are not just another passenger; you become a friend of our crew as they take pleasure in sharing with you their passion and cruising knowledge of these remarkable playgrounds.  You will only get this with Small Ship Cruising.

Home-style meals are cooked onboard and enjoyed at our informal dinner tables. The meals include; continental breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, pre-dinner nibbles, dinner and dessert. 

All of our itineraries are flexible to allow you to discover, or in some cases re-discover these wonderful cruising locations.

We encourage you to go ashore and explore, but that is up to you.  You are welcome to stay onboard and relax with a book or just sit back and enjoy the scenery around you.

We wish to make all of our cruises highly rewarding and memorable for everyone.

So join us onboard 'Affinity' for a cruise that will leave you with a lifetime of memories, new friends and the desire to discover and cruise more.
