This Specialised Cruise: P&O Australia
The Pacific Island Hopper is a special cruise operated by P&O Australia and it includes a number of fantastic treasures of the South Pacific. This cruise takes place over 7 nights which makes it perfect for those who are strapped for time or trying out cruising for the first time. Of course, it’s also a decent enough length to allow passengers to fully relax and benefit from their time away. Brisbane is the closest of all Australian ports to the South Pacific Islands. It will take just one sea day there and two upon your return.

Similar itineraries are offered by Carnival, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean.
Island Hopper Ports: Paradise in the South Pacific
The Pacific Island Hopper begins its journey in Brisbane and sets off on a journey to Noumea and Lifou. Both of which are in New Caledonia. Hereafter, it makes one last stop in Port Vila, Vanuatu before making its way back to Brisbane. The tropical city of Noumea is New Caledonia’s capital and it’s remarkable to see how the native culture and colonial history have blended in this beautiful place. Lifou’s perfect white beach and underwater treasures will make everyone’s tropical holiday dreams come true. This is the ideal spot to explore the life under the sea with some snorkels or go scuba diving. The friendly town of Port Vila has a busy harbour and the local craft markets are great for picking up all sorts of goods and souvenirs.
