Default Australia or New Zealand -- need advice

I took my first cruise to Alaska last year and I'm eager to take another one. I'm currently looking at Australia in November 2012. I would like to stay with Princess since I had such a positive experience with them. However, I need some itinerary advice.

I'm looking at a cruise of Queensland, 11-nights including a solar eclipse viewing. I would be interested in New Zealand, but the other itineraries that include New Zealand leave out a stop at the Great Barrier Reef, which to me, is one of those things I need to see. Here are links to the two cruises I'm considering and I would be very interested in any feedback you might offer of the pros and cons of each itinerary.

Queensland
Princess Cruises : 11 days Queensland Roundtrip From Sydney : Details & Availability

New Zealand RT from Sydney
Princess Cruises : 13 days New Zealand Roundtrip From Sydney : Details & Availability

Thanks!

Do the NZ and Ozzy cruise starting from the NZ end and then do the Great Barrier Reef as a separate part of your holiday as you would enjoy spending more than one day there???

Why not do a cruisetour? I'm doing the 22 night in Nov. 2012. The eclipse won't be total on my cruise, but I've seen them before and cloudy weather is always a factor.

In Australia, I thought RCI's itineraries were much more appealing than Princess's, so much so that I just gave up my first Platinum status cruise.

New Zealand is a very popular among those tourist who like to travel and enjoy in cruise. I had only one time travel in a cruise in my life and I really enjoyed my vacations. It was such a great adventure for me.
