Luxury Cruising, New Zealand
Rua Moana offers sublime seclusion at its floating finest!
A super-sleek ultraluxe cruiser built to the highest standards, Rua Moana provides nearly 27m (88ft) of privilege, privacy and pure indulgence; from the heated spa on the foredeck to the submersible beach platform at the stern.
Designed for maximum comfort and minimal environmental impact, Rua Moana provides modern indulgences (think wifi and air-conditioning, a movie theatre and gym equipment) whilst also going to unprecedented lengths to protect the precious environments she visits (including a glass to sand bottle crusher and a sea- to freshwater desalinator).
Guests enjoy effortless luxury, en suite accommodation for up to eight guests (in four queen-size cabins, with additional accommodation for your crew) and an impressive collection of floating toys. Savour chef-prepared meals while drinking in the magnificent scenery.
Waitematā Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf offer some of the most spectacular accessible cruising grounds in the world. Set sail from the Auckland city centre to call in at beautiful bays and beaches or visit spectacularly located golf courses, wineries and restaurants; stay on a little longer to explore the Mercury Islands, Great Barrier or the blissful Bay of Islands.
No need to venture far: moored at the Auckland Viaduct, Rua Moana makes an ideal waterfront city base.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
