South Pacific Cruises to the Pacific Islands
South Pacific cruises to the Pacific Islands will take you to such exotic destinations as Hawaii, Fiji, Polynesia, French Polynesia, New Caledonia and New Zealand. The continent of Australia is also in this part of the world.
Cruise New Caledonia and Australia’s Pacific East Coast
Explore the French overseas territory of New Caledonia, which is now classified as a special collectivity as it gains a measure of independence. Cruise the South Pacific island chain from the ports of Brisbane or Sydney on the Australian mainland in seven nights, with options to spend up to two weeks on board you cruise ship. The Pacific eastern coastline of Australia can also be explored from nearby New Zealand, beginning in the northern city of Auckland and taking in Brisbane, Sydney, Airlie Beach and Newcastle.
Fiji Islands Cruises
Sailing out into the vast South Pacific, the island of Fiji is best known for its laid back way of life, clear blue waters and long sandy beaches. A cruise in the South Pacific from the Fijian city of Nadi takes you to the tropical Yasawa Islands, brimming with cultural and natural feasts. You can choose a short cruise of just three nights, or explore the entire island chain in up to seven nights.
French Polynesia Cruises
Tahiti is an island formed by volcanic activity and the centre of French Polynesian culture and society. Explore the stunning coral reefs and the volcanic islands and atolls that make up the Society Islands. You can enjoy some of the best South Pacific cruise scenery on a Tahiti cruise winding around these islands, the most well-known of which being Bora Bora and, of course, Tahitia black sand beaches.
Hawaii Cruises from America
The Hawaiian Islands can be explored on their own or as part of a cruise taking in the Western California coast of the United States of America, and can also connect you to the Canadian coastline and city of Vancouver. The diverse volcanic islands of Hawaii are in themselves a destination to be explored and enjoyed. As with all the South Pacific Islands, the sound of waves gently lapping on the shore is never far away.
If all of this seems too good to be true and you just can’t decide which of the South Pacific cruises sounds best, why not visit all of the islands on a 35 night South Pacific Islands cruise, which takes in the highlights of the island chains mentioned so far plus the Polynesian island of Samoa. Cruising the Pacific Ocean, no matter which route you choose, promises to be a holiday filled with glorious sunsets, sand between your toes, rich tribal cultures steeped in ancient practices, natural vistas and not to mention colourful drinks with little umbrellas to help you reach ultimate relaxation!
