Cultural on sea Programs is an exciting series of hosted cultural interactive and participatory events for passengers during the cruise. These events are scheduled to provide passengers with an awareness and introduction of cultural history, protocols, language, songs and performing arts of the Maori people of New Zealand. Maori On Sea Programs teach passengers how to make their own Poi ball and how to use them during a cultural Maori action song. Passengers also learn how to make their own Maori headbands and get to keep them. The raw materials are provided for passengers to complete their Maori crafts.

Scheduled workshops teach passengers how to make these crafts and also teach them how to sing and perform with these items. Maori on On Sea Programs also teach the famous Haka ‘Ka Mate, Ka Mate’ made famous around the world by the New Zealand ‘All Blacks’ which the All Blacks perform before each rugby match in preparation to their rugby game. The cultural workshops prepare the passengers to participate in a stage show extravaganza as a production held in the main theatre with a 45 minute show.

In addition to the cultural workshops, a series of lectures provide a unique informed cultural perspective on an array of Maori themed topics as the cast of ‘Maori on location’ present a 40-minute PowerPoint presentation.
