This holiday season was a bit different from years past because this year, we celebrated Christmas and New Years far far away from home… in New Zealand and Australia! We had this family vacay planned for some time and I had no idea what to expect going into it because I’ve never been in the Southern Hemisphere. Let me just say, both places are absolutely stunning!
Our trip started with a long, 12 hour flight to Auckland, NZ. There we boarded our home away from home, Crystal Cruise Symphony. This was my third and my parent’s fourth time on Crystal Cruise. If you want to take a fabulous, luxury cruise, go on Crystal- you won’t be disappointed, I can promise you. Everything from the food to the cleanliness of the entire cruise ship to the amazing, attentive staff will make all of the dollars so incredibly worth it. Luckily, my parents are kind enough to invite my brothers and I on such a phenomenal vacation.
Below are some pictures capturing most things we did… and ate! From Christmas on the beautiful ship to New Years Eve celebrations in the Sydney Harbor. It is definitely a trip I will always remember!
