Anzex Is Back For Passengers Travelling To And From New Zealand, With Connections To And From The USA And Europe Via China

Last year, on December 1, Maersk Line purchased Hamburg-Sued and closed down the German line’s passenger services. One of the areas worst affected by this was New Zealand, which lost its passenger service from both coasts of North America. Service to and from Europe had closed earlier when the ships serving that route had changed.

Now, with the introduction of the 5-passenger British-registered CMA CGM Amber to the Anzex line, passenger service has been reinstated between New Zealand and China, as well as with Noumea on the outbound voyage and Brisbane on the return. Ports served in New Zealand include Auckland, Port Chalmers, Lyttelton, Napier and Tauranga, while in Chinese waters, the CMA CGM Amber calls at Hong Kong, Yantian, Keelung, Shanghai, Ningbo, Shekou and Kaohsiung. This marks a return of passenger service to the Anzex sline that has been absent for several years.

The voyage from Tauranga to Hong Kong is 14 days and from Shanghai to Auckland 21 days, while Hong Kong to Brisbane is 22 days. Fares are €110 per person per day in a double cabin and €130 per day in a single. There are also fares of  €130 per day double or €150 single for voyages of ten days or fewer. To this must be added a booking fee of €70 per passenger and management fee of €45.

Connections to and from US and European ports can be made over Hong Kong or Shanghai.

In addition to service to Hong Kong, four 10-berth ships operate between Australia ports and Singapore but do not serve New Zealand.
