Relax, you have hours to enjoy this

Our Kaitaki Plus lounge is a secluded oasis of calming indulgence. While the excited hordes mill around outside, you can relax with a complimentary magazine, sip upon a coffee, and treat yourself to a butter croissant. 

Of course, there is much to see outside and you are free to come and go as you please. From the lounge, there is direct access to the viewing decks where you can breathe in the ocean breeze and take in the astonishing views. 

Our Kaitaki Plus also provides premium views from your seat, so you can sit back with a wine or beer and drink in the views. This is a journey to savour, so take your time and enjoy it.
