    10 Night Cruise sailing from Auckland roundtrip aboard Pacific Jewel.

    Discover a little bit of everything the Pacific Islands have to offer. Your “must-do” list might look a little something like this: Jet Ski Noumea’s famous lagoon, taste traditional Kanak cuisine in Lifou, zorbing in Vila, beach relaxation on Mystery Island, and snorkelling the natural aquarium in Isle of Pines. Not a bad way to holiday!

    Highlights of this cruise:

    Auckland
    Auckland’s waterside location has fostered the locals’ love affair with the sea, and has earned itself the nickname “the City of Sails”. With more boats per capita than any other country in the world, it truly is a water lover’s paradise.

    Suva
    From its cosmopolitan downtown area to its quaint villages, Suva offers visitors a truly well rounded view of Fiji’s interesting culture.

    Suva is located on a scenic harbour in the southeast corner on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu. It is home to over a third of the nation’s population and is a conglomeration of everything you’ll find in the Pacific – people from many islands, exotic foods, traders, businesses of all kinds, students and, of course, travellers. Although it’s a busy, sophisticated place, it still manages to keep the relaxed pace for which the Pacific is so well renowned.

    Port Denarau
    Just off the coast of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, Denarau Island is comprised of luxurious hotels, a golf course, immaculately manicured residential estates, palm tree-lined streets and excellent shopping and sporting facilities that are among the best in the Pacific. As well as all this, it provides a port for travelling to the many spectacular islands off its coast.

    Vava'u
    The sheer beauty of Vava’u can be overwhelming. It’s a photographer’s dream. The heavily forested main island, actually a coral atoll, rises in to more than 150 metres.

    Nuku'alofa
    Nuku'alofa, which translates to 'home of love', is the capital of the Kingdom of Tonga.

    The first humans to settle Tonga arrived around 3,000 BC. They were Polynesians from the surrounding islands in the area between New Zealand and Hawaii. In the 1600’s various European navigators such as Abel Tasman sailed past Tonga. However, it wasn’t until 1773, and again in 1777 that European contact occurred when Captain James Cook landed and named the islands "the Friendly Islands". Missionaries and traders followed the first European explorers. However, Tonga retained its indigenous governing structure, becoming a fully functioning constitutional monarchy in 2010 when the first democratically elected Prime Minister took office. In the island’s interior the volcanic stone burial tombs of ancient Tongan kings, and a coral-stone arch, known as the Ha'amonga, are vivid reminders of Tonga’s past. The Ha'amonga is known as the "Stonehenge of the Pacific" and reputed to be about 800 years old.
