Noumea was a little disappointing I think next time I would do a tour of the islands as the city is looking a bit tired

Did the hop on bus to Duck Island. Pretty little island with upscale furniture but poor snorkeling because all the coral was broken. We saw better fish as we swam towards the buoys. They wanted $ to sit on the chairs. I got annoyed and left. Took the bus again and stopped at the little aquarium. Fantastic exhibit and good turtle exhibit also.

Well developed port. Excursions at welcome centre were fraction of the price of ship for same experience, and hop-on-hop-off shuttles got us to every location for the day very cost effectively.

Take reef shoes, due to coral. Snorkel if you can, either take your own or you can hire. Use local currency & buy from markets.

Was very easy to navigate around Noumea using the Hop On Hop Off Bus. But the ship did not promote this, preferring to promote their overpriced tours. Beaches were great
