Kia Ora !*FIRSTNAME*!,

This coming summer season there are 82 cruise ships scheduled to visit the Port of Tauranga bringing in excess of 155,000 passengers and 60,000 crew into the Bay of Plenty.

We are compiling an information sheet for crew aboard these ships who have shore leave and interested in shore excursions while in port. Remember crew are interacting with guests continually onboard and the more they know about our destination the more they can influence future decisions of passengers. Therefore we suggest a strong offer to encourage crew to visit your business.

On that note if you are interested in having an offer put forward through Cruise New Zealand to all onboard crew please email  by Wednesday 28 September. This information is shared with all the cruise lines  who undertake to ensure crew are aware of the options for them.

The information we require is:

  • Company Name:
  • Address:
  • Phone number:
  • Website:
  • Email:
  • Distance to Port:
  • Duration of Activity:
  • Prices: (with crew ID):
  • Transport options: (if any):
  • 100 Word Description of Attraction/Activity/Experience: 

If anyone has any feedback from crew visits last season we would be interested to hear so we can address it in the information put forward to the cruise lines.
