					NAVIGATING NEW ZEALAND’S ISLANDS
ABOARD THE 128-PASSENGER CLIPPER ODYSSEY ®                DEC 27, 2006 – JAN 7, 2007

Explore New Zealand during the austral summer, venturing off the tourist path to
experience North and South Islands’ breathtaking bays, abundant wildlife, spectacular
national parks and nature reserves, and rich Maori culture (and Jewish history!) during a
cruise aboard the yachtlike Clipper Odyssey, winner of the 2005 World Travel Award for
Best Small Ship (under 150 passengers). Travel with fewer than 130 passengers, tying up
in quaint towns and sparkling cities, and discovering secluded spots virtually untouched
by tourism, where large ships could never venture. A distinguished group of naturalists
and experts will accompany you, enhancing your enjoyment of this fascinating region.
