Tauranga lies in the heart of the Bay of Plenty region, about 2.5 hours south of the city of Auckland. It has become one of New Zealand's fastest-growing areas thanks to plentiful sunshine and beautiful beaches. But with a population of only about 100,000, Tauranga can still offer you generous space to yourself. In fact, the densest concentration of attractions, and perhaps the biggest crowds, is on The Strand in the downtown area. Tauranga also hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year, including arts, comedy, film, jazz and blues.
Please remember you have up to 4 days prior to your sail date to purchase your Royal Caribbean International Shore Excursions online. If you are within the 4 days, you will then need to purchase your Shore Excursions on board; land excursions would need to be purchased directly through your tour director on the land portion of your Cruisetour.
