Exploring Lyttelton on Our P&O New Zealand Cruise


Exploring Lyttelton on Our P&O New Zealand Cruise

Our fifth port of call on the P\&O New Zealand Cruise brought us to the charming town of Lyttelton. This day was set to be our biggest adventure yet, filled with scenic drives, cultural exploration, and breathtaking views.

We started our day bright and early, eager to disembark the ship and meet our tour bus waiting for us in Lyttelton. The scenic drive towards Christchurch was a treat in itself, with a lookout point offering us a glimpse of the stunning surroundings. As we entered Christchurch, the marks of the earthquake were still visible, a stark reminder of the resilience of the people rebuilding their city.

Once in Christchurch, we embarked on a journey through the city's highlights. We hopped on the tram loop, allotted two hours to explore the city at our leisure. After a few stops, we decided to wander through the streets, immersing ourselves in the local culture. From browsing market stalls to enjoying live entertainment in the main square, Christchurch offered a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.

Our next stop was Punting in the Avon, where we rejoined our tour group for a tranquil ride along the river. The tour guide shared fascinating insights as we glided down the Avon, surrounded by the city's natural beauty.

The grand finale of our tour was a trip up the Gondola, promising panoramic views of Christchurch and its surroundings. As we ascended the mountain in the cable car, we were met with breathtaking vistas that included a view of our ship docked at Lyttelton Port. The experience was truly unforgettable, offering a bird's eye view of the stunning landscapes below.

Returning to Lyttelton, we took the express tunnel back to the port, marveling at the sight of our cruise ship waiting for us. Back on board, we celebrated our day of exploration with a few afternoon cocktails, reminiscing about the incredible experiences we had in Lyttelton and Christchurch.
