Hi there I notice our cruise ship is not listed for 2016/17. It is Crystal Symphony arriving Napier Sat Jan 14 2017. Is there a reason for this ? Thanks Andrea

Response from Hamish P | Property representative |
Hi there, the cruise ships listed on our website are those whom we have our shore excursion on. If you check the Napier port cruise schedule you will notice that your ship is indeed listed to visit Napier Jan 14th 2017.

For door-to-door service, do we need to stay in a specific area of Napier / Hastings for the pick-up and drop off?

I believe they pick up anywhere in the immediate Napier region. We stayed in Mahia and got picked up at the Napier National Aquarium.

Hi Hamish and Ian, My husband and I, and another couple will be on a cruise. We will be in Napier on Feb 12, 2017. My concern is, will we have sufficient time since Our ship docks at 7 am sails out at 2 pm. I am interested in the Moana winery and if feasible the lunch as well. Thanks to the great reviews, we would like to experience this tour. Regards, Melanie Rodericks
