At IDNZ we have a policy of one staff member taking "ownership" of each particular ship that visits New Zealand waters. This gives both head office personnel and crew onboard the ship a dedicated point of contact and the essential continuity that flows from this. Every ship is met by this person at the port of entry.
Our team understands the complexities and challenges that shore operations can pose. We realise how important it is for the cruise staff to know that they can rely on us completely during their time in New Zealand.
