If you are tired of "typical" cruises where every port looks alike after a while, then you should take an exotic cruise to Australia and New Zealand. If you don't mind the long flight, a cruise around these South Pacific islands will be educational, scenic, and of course, action-packed. Learn about the indigenous Maori culture. See the Tazmanian devil. Scuba dive along the Great Barrier Reef. Or you can relax on the beautiful beaches of Auckland. Before traveling, note that you need to get a visa, but the process is easy.
