Fiordland National Park, New Zealand

2018 HAL World Cruise

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

 

After rounding the Southern tip of South Island and entering the Tasman Sea, the MS Amsterdam spent a day cruising the sounds of Fiordland National Park before leaving the New Zealand shores.  We explored Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound, and the most spectacular Milford Sound.  We had a gorgeous day to experience the beauty of this wonderland park.  The pictures will tell the tale!
