Unfortunately I found Wellington a very boring city and surprised that it was their Capital. I thought Canberra was dull but Wellington was worse. Apart from an excellent coffee at Mojo's and lunch at David Jones this City didn't really excite me at all. Read Less

Docked away from city center in cargo port area but continuous free shuttle bus service was provided. Simply but, this was a big city port call, but had various historical buildings as New Zealand’s capital. Weather was cloudy with light rain/mist later in the day, so me merely took shuttle bus into city and rode cable car up to botanical gardens. Gardens were a disappointment since being late Summer there was very little flowering plants except in one area. We definitely would like to tour again in late Spring. Read Less

A lovely city. Everything is close. Great views from Mt Victoria and Cable Car. Maritime and TePapa museums are well worth seeing. It was a little windy on the day we were there, but you can't beat Wellington on a good day.

We independently booked a friendly, private driver to take us to visit fur seals, and give us a tour of Wellington that focused on the things we were eager to see/do.

Great city to tour on your own. Cable car, Botanic Gardens and Te Papa museum. Te Papa was outstanding. Lots of shops for browsing.

This was not on the original itinerary. The inclement weather at the Fjords forced the change. So Wellington replaced Port Chalmers/Dunedin. The ship docked around 6 p.m. on the third night. We rode the free shuttle bus into town. But most of the stores and attractions were closed. The next morning, we hiked up to Mount Victoria from the second shuttle stop. We also visited the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and walked along the waterfront. From the waterfront, we walked along Lambton Quay to do some shopping. We ended up at the Beehive where the first shuttle stop was. Read Less

This is an easy city to do on your own. Get off the shuttle bus at the second stop. We toured the museum for free, took the cable car (for about $5) to the top of the hill and walked down towards shuttle stop one through the gorgeous gardens. Tours of Parliament are available but probably should be booked in advance. Make sure you stop in St Paul Anglican Cathedral. It is beautiful with a lovely gift shop and helpful people. Read Less

We took the shuttle into Wellington getting off at Stop 2, then we walked up Cuba Street, finding a wonderful Italian bistro Ombra for lunch. Food and Coffee brilliant.
