Whether it's a port day or a disembarkation and embarkation day, most cruise ships in Auckland, New Zealand will dock at either Princes or Queens Wharf. Both are in downtown Auckland and just a short walk from many of the city's sightseeing, dining and retail establishments. Take a stroll along Auckland's waterfront and check out both Shed 10 and "The Cloud", the two structures which comprise Queens Wharf. Depending on the day and time, you may even see a cruise ship arriving or departing!

Have you ever seen your cruise ship arrive at your embarkation port?
Since most ships arrive to disembarkation / embarkation ports in the wee hours of the morning, it's not that common to see the ship that you will be boarding as it pulls into port. Because of a port cancellation due to weather, the Grand Princess arrived early to the Port of Auckland. Our Airbnb was located very close to the port, and we were able to sit on the balcony and watch as she docked the evening before we boarded.
