South Pacific: 10 nights in October 2013

Enjoy 10 nights aboard the Carnival Spirit with this cruise around the islands of the South Pacific. The ship leaves from Sydney and the first port of call is Port Vila, the capital town of Vanuatu. Based around a natural harbour, it is busy with fishing boats coming and going. Visit the local markets for handicrafts and produce! The next stop is Mystery Island, also in Vanuatu but a much different destination than Vila. It is small and completely uninhabited, making it an unspoilt paradise. Two calls at New Caledonian ports come next- first is Lifou, an island of varied and beautiful landscapes and scenery both above and below the gorgeous clear water. Snorkeling and diving are popular here! The final stop is at Noumea, a city of French-Melanesian fusion and the capital of New Caledonia. Here there are beaches, cafes, restaurants and more to be explored whilst the ship is in port, before returning to Sydney over 2 days at sea.
