Away from the ship, Montrose’s sailors experienced a wide-ranging package of adventurous training, from bungee jumps to mountain biking, canyoning to stand-up paddle boarding.
The ship’s netball team beat their hosts, but the rugby squad lost to the New Zealand Navy All Blacks.
The vessel's Commanding Officer, Commander Conor O’Neill, said the five days in Auckland had "delivered on every front".
"Montrose has re-kindled relationships with our hosts and allies in the Royal New Zealand Navy, demonstrated our capability, undertaken adventurous training and sport and explored an amazing city," he continued.
"Our time in and around Auckland has definitely been a highlight of our global deployment so far and one we will long remember."
Upon leaving New Zealand, Montrose will visit four continents before arriving at the new British Naval Support Facility in Bahrain for deployment in the Gulf region.
