|'Dawn Princess' in Auckland, New Zealand|
There are more cruise ships than ever in the South Pacific this year. The port of Auckland is expecting over 100 visits. And more cruise lines are sending ships to this part of the world. Holland America, Princess, P&O, Celebrity, Carnival, Seabourn and Royal Caribbean will all be sailing here. The biggest ship to visit Auckland will be 'Voyager of the Seas', carrying 3840 passengers.
Now is a great time to get a good price on a cruise. More ships and a stagnant economy mean there are big price reductions, especially for last minute deals. Cruises have never been cheaper!
