Tue 26th Sep 2017               At Sea
Wed 27th Sep 2017             Isle Of Pines, New Caledonia                        Arrive 08:00              Depart 17:00
If you can tear yourself away from the picture-perfect waters of Isle of Pines long enough, head inland and take in the lush forests, grottos and landmarks on an Island Discovery Shore Tour. Before you leave, drop by Kuto Beach markets for local art and sarongs. You may want to pick up a memento, or a gift for a friend at home who is probably wishing they were you right now.

Thu 28th Sept 2017                   Mystery Island, Vanuatu                                      Arrive 08:00                        Depart 17:00
Mystery Island is located just 600m off the SW corner of Aneityum, the southernmost inhabited island in the Vanuatu archipelago of the South Pacific. The islet is uninhabited apart from tourists, and its airport that was originally a World War II landing strip for the allied forces. The twice-weekly flights serve the population on nearby Aneityum Island. Cruise ship visitors arrive by tender, and are greeted by friendly locals from Aneityum, who come across to meet them, alongside an attractive Welcome sign. They provide entertainment with a string band and singing. Of great interest is the Thong Instrument, played by banging a thong on the end of various lengths of bamboo. It is surprisingly very musical.

Fri 29th Sept 2017                             Port Vila, Vanuatu                            Arrive 08:00                      Depart 18:00
Port Vila, the capital city of Vanuatu (‘Land Eternal’), is situated on the south coast of the island of Efate, and is Vanuatu’s most important harbour. Megaliners can now dock at its recently upgraded pier. Its magnificent setting offers stunning views of Iririki and Ifira islands. Clean and uncluttered, the waterfront area is so unpolluted, visitors are stunned to look down from the seawall and see live corals and tropical fish. The people of the country are predominately Melanesian, but there are now more than 115 distinctly different cultures and languages that thrive here, making it one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Vanuatu is the most popular destination for cruises departing Australia.

Sat 30th Sept 2017                              Lifou, New Caledonia                                Arrive 08:00                         Depart 17:00
Lifou is the largest of the Loyalty Islands, a north-eastern Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France, in the Pacific Ocean. Kanak culture is most present in Lifou, which has managed to preserve its own traditional authenticity. The welcoming people receive visitors as favoured guests. The island’s natural wealth, consisting of long, deserted beaches, and crystal-clear lagoons, make snorkelling and scuba diving very popular. With multi-coloured sea life and coral fauna not found anywhere else in the world, this is not surprising. Get your camera ready to take photos of the deceptively-fast majestic turtles that roam these waters.

Sun 1st Oct 2017                  Noumea, New Caledonia                              Arrive 08:00                         Depart 17:00
The Pacific’s most cosmopolitan city is also its most French – and that means delicious cuisine! Our Shore Tours take you to the very best restaurants in town. Treat your tastebuds to authentic French croissants and cheeses while you try to pronounce ‘crêpe’ properly. Allow our expert local guides to lead you to stunning bays, beaches and the world’s largest lagoon. Kayak down pristine rivers, or visit Amedee Island with its crystal-clear waters teeming with brightly coloured fish. C’est magnifique!
