Transpacific Crossing Cruise: 22 Nights in October 2012.

Return home to Sydney by cruise. Departing from Vancouver, take a luxurious and relaxing way back to Australia for only a little more than a flight. After 6 relaxing days on the sea, experiencing all the entertainment the cruise offers, arrive in Hilo, Hawaii. On the lush side of the Big Island find world-class botanical gardens, macadamia-nut plantations and, of course, the molten lava flows of Kilauea. Honolulu gives you the classic Hawaiian allure of pineapple plantations, surfing beaches, hula shows, luaus and high-energy discos. Find island bliss in Apia Samoa. Experience a traditional kava ceremony, taste breadfruit, relax in a thatched roof fale on the beach. Cross the International date line before arriving in Nuku' Alofa, Tonga. Hopefully the Tongan people, cheerful and welcoming, will treat you to a version of the lakalaka - their compelling art of storytelling manifested in a breathtaking dance. Relax in Lifou, New Caledonia before exploring Noumea by Le Petit train or just embracing the french island culture in a Cafe. Lay on the pristine white sand beaches or discover the Amedee Lightouse, a perfect place for snorkelling the coral reef. Return to Sydney rejuvenated and refreshed!
