When Bluebridge’s first ship, the MV Santa Regina, set sail on her maiden voyage across Cook Strait in early 2002, NZMCA members were there among the very first passengers – and you’ve been with us ever since. This year we’ve installed VSAT WiFi to give you the fastest internet on Cook Strait, reduced caravan fares, and launched a new family discount that you can get on top of your really low NZMCA fares.
