In the process of booking our flight home to the USA from Sydney arrival port. This will be after a 19 day Transpacific Cruise starting in Hawaii, with our trip starting on 5 days before pre-cruise. Overall a long time to be away from home. Looking for your input if it is worth the stopover in Auckland for a day or two (the connecting city for Air New Zealand back to the USA)? We are already staying a couple of days in Sydney post arrival. I typically become Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz feeling by the end of the trip, 'there is no place like home', but I also don't want to miss the opportunity if its worth the extra time and $$$. Advise also if two full days and nights are enough time in Sydney post arrival.
