Taking the ferry to the North Island, Wellington, was a total cruise. The ferry was HUGE with a cinema, several restaurants, cabins. You name it, they had it. We ended up going to the cinema and at the end of the movie the boat started rocking. Half an hour later it was pale faces galore and here and there an occasional puke. Lovely. The water in New Zealand isn’t really like the Maldives. So after a rocky entrance we arrived in Wellington. In the pouring rain. But ready to explore the North Island.
