    Cruise Itinerary

    ** Itinerary may vary by sailing date
  • Your cruise in detail

    15 Night cruise departing from Papeete to Auckland onboard Crystal Serenity.

    Follow the brilliant coral reefs of Rarotonga as you float in cerulean lagoons, and explore the sweetness of “Sugar City” on Lautoka. Discover Ra’iatea’s imposing beauty, and the spectacular waters surrounding the Bay of Islands.

    Highlights of this cruise:

    Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
    Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia, is by no means a sleepy town. With an international airport, wide waterfront-boulevard and new buildings, it boasts all the modern trappings of civilization. Its engaging atmosphere is vibrantly alive, a marvelous potpourri of European manner and carefree island ways. A few steps from our pier, boutiques and galleries abound as Tahitian shopkeepers dressed in bright paréos greet customers with a welcoming iaorana. The nearby open-air market is a bustle of activity. Away from the clamor of town are peaceful fern grottos, tiny villages tucked in verdant valleys and ancient sacred maraes.

    Raiatea, Society Islands
    Raiatea is the largest, highest and most populated of French Polynesia's Leeward Islands. With a surface area of nearly 80 square miles, a population of only 10,000 inhabitants and imposing Mount Temehani towering 3,300 feet above a clear emerald-colored lagoon, Raiatea is a jewel of the sea. Often referred to as "sacred" by historians and archeologists, Raiatea is a historian's and archeologist's treasure. In primitive Polynesian society, Raiatea (the extended sky) was called Havaii, which originates from the traditional name used to designate the land of the ancestors. As a result, Havaii was the Society Island's source of history, religion and genealogies. The industrious people of Raiatea will welcome you to their "sacred" paradise. Discover ancient marae or venture inland for panoramic views and to chat with locals. Or, journey to Raiatea's isolated sister-island, Tahaa.

    Rarotonga, Cook Islands
    Kia Orana and welcome to Rarotonga, the main island of the Cook group. This splendid island chain was named in honor of the great explorer Captain James Cook. Rarotonga's richly covered mountains rise 2,000 feet above white-sand beaches; and its encircling coral reefs create beautiful, safe lagoons. The hospitality here is warm and spontaneous. Smiling faces greet you at every turn of the road. Traditional cultures have been retained on an island where tranquil lifestyles are uncomplicated by the pace of the outside world. You will be captivated by the exuberant dancing and easygoing ways of the gentle islanders.

    Nuku'Alofa, Tonga
    The tiny South Pacific kingdom of Tonga is a member of the Commonwealth. This shows in Nuku'Alofa, the capital, with its Victorian Royal Palace, impressive chapel, and Royal Tombs of the local monarchs. Yet Tonga teems with South Sea beauty as well, including exotic Talamahu Market, wave-swept coastal cliffs, and Fafa Island.

    Lautoka, Fiji
    To the east of the International Date Line lies an exquisite garland of islands known as Fiji. Dignified smiling people bid you "bula," or welcome, to their unspoiled homeland. The bustling port town of Lautoka has a population of 44,000. It lies cradled on the western shores of Viti Levu, the largest of Fiji's 300 idyllic islands. Shop for shell jewelry, wood carvings, woven mats, basketry and masi, the traditional painted bark cloth. Or scour the market for exquisite Indian saris. Not too far distant from our pier are field upon field of lush sugar cane, traditional villages and an orchid wonderland. As the islanders proudly claim, "Fiji is the way the world ought to be."

    Waitangi, Bay of Islands, New Zealand
    Like a stop in Philadelphia or Colonial Williamsburg, a visit to Waitangi lets you trace the founding of a country. It was here that a treaty between the Maori and the British was formed, making New Zealand part of the British Empire. At the Waitangi National Reserve, one of the most important historic sites in New Zealand, visitors can see the Treaty House where the 1840 treaty was signed, and view a faithful replica of the original document. Other attractions of the Reserve include the ornate Maori meeting house and a massive war canoe. Of course, this being New Zealand, there are many natural attractions as well, including lush forest and spectacular coastline.

    Auckland, New Zealand
    Welcome to Auckland, the "City of Sails." New Zealand's largest city is along the shores of an extinct volcanic cone known as Rangitoto, often visible to the east. Auckland's population of over one million people represents almost a third of the country's total.
    New Zealand seems to have a bit of everything: great natural beauty, friendly people, magnificent glacier-studded mountain ranges, sculpted fjords, pristine untouched beaches, lush rainforest, an endless array of sporting activities, and, not to be forgotten, plenty of sheep and rolling farmland.
    Auckland is the perfect city from which to experience most of what New Zealand has to offer. The city lies astride a narrow isthmus between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean on two harbors, the Waitemata and Manukau. Auckland and New Zealand's geographic and cultural treasures beckon for your discovery.
    An enthusiastic welcome awaits you at this thriving city by the sea.
