Here are some suggested South Pacific Cruises

11 Night Cook Islands and Society Islands South Pacific Cruise

On this South Pacific Odyssey, you'll discover the isle of Huahine, renowned for its spectacular rain forests. Then experience the unique majesty of the Cook Islands. Arid Aitutaki is virtually flat-so much so that you can spot the ocean from nearly any point on the island, sitting in sharp contrast to sister island Rarotonga's jagged peaks and deep valleys. Rarotonga's fertile slopes of red earth and sparkling aquamarine lagoon call to mind the classic Victorian ideal of paradise, which the island was called by its first European explorers. Return to the Society Islands for days in alluring Bora Bora, Taha'a, Moorea, and Papeete.

10 Day Society Islands and Tuamotus South Pacific Cruise

Visit the gracious Society Islands, including Huahine, with its stunning crystalline lagoon. The Tuamotu Archipelago awaits you next. Comprised of very low-lying atolls, none of the chain's many islets rise more than ten feet above sea level. Visit Rangiroa, home to the second-largest lagoon in the world. It is noted for its fantastic diving - you may see rays, sharks, dolphins, and myriad small reef fish. Go on to call at legendary Bora Bora, Taha'a, and Moorea.

7 Day Tahiti and Society Island South Pacific Cruise

In 1891, when Paul Gauguin arrived in Tahiti, he captured the charm, culture, and languid grace of its people in oils.You won't find his paintings here, but the breathtaking scenic splendor and easygoing lifestyle of its people remain. This 7-night itinerary is perfect for those who want to experience the best French Polynesia has to offer in just a week.Aboard the award-winning m/s Paul Gauguin, you'll draw close to the islands that inspired Gauguin, author James A. Michener, and so many others. Call on Huahine, the "Garden Island" ... spend a day on our own private islet off the coast of Taha'a ... explore magical Bora Bora and bask on our private white-sand beach on a motu off the coast ... and discover Moorea, said to be the model for Michener's Bali Hai.There's a reason these islands are world-renowned— their beauty is unmatched.

13 Day Tahiti, Society and Cook Islands and Fiji Cruise

Follow in the wake of explorers on this comprehensive cruise. Begin in the spectacularly beautiful Society Islands, home waters of The Gauguin, and sail on to the Cook Island of Aitutaki, with its unique culture and exquisite lagoon. Cross the International Date Line en route to the islands of Vava’u, Tonga, with their spectacularly clear waters brimming with colorful marine life. Your captain next charts a course to legendary Fiji, where you'll visit the country’s cultural centers along with more remote destinations. Contrast Savsavu, sometimes called the “Hidden Paradise of Fiji,” with lovely Suva, Fiji’s bustling capital, where you’ll discover a blend of Polynesian flair and European sophistication. And enjoy a true escape from everyday cares on the remote, family-owned Malolo Island before arriving in the “Sugar City”—Lautoka, the heart of Fiji’s sugarcane-growing region, where your cruise draws to a close.

7 Day Sailing Cruise through the South Pacific

A graceful sailing yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. We’ll let the trade winds fill our sails as we visit one legendary island after another, staying overnight in most to give you time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers.

South Pacific Cruises and Vacation Plans

Ahhhhh. The South Pacific. Talk about the pinnacle of relaxation. Visiting the South Pacific is very different than any other places that people want to go on vacation. The vacation to the South Pacific is a Bucket List Idea in and of itself. People imagine themselves laying on a chaise, reading a book in a hammock, staying in hut over the ocean. Others can envision snorkelling with experts at secluded beaches.

What is the Best Time of Year to Visit the South Pacific?

The best time of year to visit the South Pacific is from March to September. During this time, it is not quite as hot and avoids the rainy season. It is important, however to undertsnad that this is a tropical climate and there can be spells of rain every day.

Should I stay at a Hotel or take a Cruise in the South Pacific?

We believe that you should do a little bit of both. It is a very long journey to get all the way to the South Pacific. Therefore, visitors will typically choose to stay for at least 10 days. Ten days at a single hotel resort can start getting a little bit old. Our reccomendation is to arrive and stay for 2 days on land before taking off on your cruise. And then at the end, spend 3 days at one of the extraordinary hotel accommodations.

How many days should my South Pacific Cruise be?

We recommend 7-10 days as the perfect fit for a cruise. There are many cruises that length and this will also give you some time to spend on the ground, on your bungalo over the ocean. 

Where should I fly to for a South Pacific Cruise?

It is easiest to fly to Fiji or Tahiti. We can provide you with the best flight options to suit your travel needs. Just contact us to get a little bit more info.

What is the best hotel in the South Pacific?

We would love to thell you that there is a best hotel in the South Pacific. But the truth is that the top hotels throughout the region are all fantastic. Whether you want to be in Bora Bora or on a private Island, like at the Marlon Brando hotel. Then there are the rest of the 5 star accommodations, which rare all....FIVE STAR!
