Vanuatu Cruise Highlights

Coral Reefs and Shipwrecks

In the calm ocean water surrounding the islands of Vanuatu, you will find exquisite coral reefs that are home to sea turtles, reef sharks, and an abundance of colorful tropical fish. Vanuatu's most famous dive site is the shipwreck of the SS President Coolidge, which sank in 1942 after hitting two American mines. The ship is now a protected marine site and is one of the largest wrecks in the world that is accessible to divers of all levels.

Blissful Beaches

Vanuatu boasts pristine, white-sand beaches on each of its islands with plenty of tropical shores to explore during your cruise. You can find secluded beaches for relaxing and snorkeling, among them Eton Beach on the island of Efate. You'll also find busier beaches, like  Port Vila's Iririki Island Beach Resort, the perfect spot for beach games, jet-skiing, and windsurfing. Many of Vanuatu's beaches are fringed with coconut palms, adding to the idyllic tropical atmosphere of the islands.

Dining & Cultural Ceremonies

You will find a diverse range of dining options in Vanuatu that showcase the wide array of cultural influences of the Melanesian, French, British, and Chinese, all of whom have all called Vanuatu home. There are also many dance shows and other traditional cultural ceremonies that highlight the rich heritage of the nation and its people. You might see a ceremonial ritual called a “sand drawing”, where artists tell stories via temporary images in the sand. You can also try a traditional dish like lap-lap, made with yam, coconut milk, and vegetables.
