Auckland - Cruise Port Terminal

Auckland sprawls over a narrow isthmus between the sparkling waters of the Waitemata and Manukau Harbours. It is one of the few cities in the world to have harbours on two separate major bodies of water.

Auckland Port is an arm of the Hauraki Gulf, which extends west from the end of the Rangitoto Channel. The Auckland Harbour Bridge extends over the harbour and connects the center of Auckland City with the North Shore.
