South Pacific Cruise Highlights

Beaches

It's no secret that the islands of the South Pacific are home to some of the world’s best beaches. On the island of Papeete in Tahiti, you'll find Matavai Bay, where white sand and aquamarine waters make for the perfect place to relax. In Fiji, head to Lautoka's Vunabaka Bay for an unforgettable experience snorkeling over brilliant coral reefs. Raiatea boasts the immaculate, unspoiled beaches of nearby Taha'a, a secluded island just a short boat ride from the port.

Polynesian Culture

One of the most valuable experiences you can have while traveling the South Pacific is to learn about Polynesia’s rich cultures. The isolated position of the islands has given rise to traditions of music, storytelling, dance, and art. In Fiji, visit a typical village, where you’ll be welcomed with a traditional ceremony and kava juice. For a taste of local culture in Noumea, head to the vibrant municipal market, filled with exotic fruit, fragrant flowers, artisanal crafts, and snack bars. 

Wildlife

Wildlife enthusiasts will find plenty of animal encounters during a South Pacific cruise, both ashore and in the water. Snorkel from the beaches of Tahiti and you could be swimming among rays, dolphins, black-tipped reef sharks, and sea turtles. While in Fiji, take a nature tour through Colo-i-Suva Forest Park. Stroll past rushing streams and tranquil pools, one with a rope swing, and be on the lookout for dazzling birds like robins, fantails, and the colorful musk parrot.
