This cruise was perfect from start to finish. Safety drill was fun adding the love boat theme to it. Beautiful sailaway out of Sydney. Amazing food. Great shows just don't go long enough. Party band evolution is really good with a wider range of songs than other cruise ship party bands. Jumari is a very good singer too. Silver line is also a reasonable band on board too. Dj whitney is good. Lots of great movies to see onboard. Love the watercolour fantasy shows on deck 16. Game shows are quite good too. Hollywood is a great place to relax and take in all the scenery. Easy to get a water shuttle to get to the island and back to the ship with very little wait time. Australia day and hot Latin deck party were lots of fun. Ice carving, fruit & veg carving are good. Sadly no towel animals. Zumba is good a way to burn off your breakfast and have a bit of fun in the morning on sea days.
Very picturesque port to visit. Scenery seen when arriving & at sailaway is magical. If you want to snorkel. You can save yourself a lot of money by going to bekana island for $50 and you choose when you want to return to your ship. A great little island to relax and for the price the snorkeling is quite good. Downside is they only offer 2 Indian dishes lunch for $30/35 if you are into that kind of food.
Suva is a scary place to visit and insist you to buy souvenirs you don't want. Just say no and keep walking. Take a tour to see the real parts of fiji. Great villages to see cultural performances, participate in the snake food, sample some local food. Pearl resort has a nice beach and great views out on the breakwater. Snorkeling is also possible at the breakwater. Clarity & reef system not good but some big fish can be seen at the end of the breakwater. The drive to get there is very picturesque
Simply beautiful. Fish visible soon as you get off the tender at the yacht club. Great place to go for scenic walks. Follow the foreshore & the road up the hill and take the 2nd dirt road at the top and follow that for great views
Lots of local tour operators. Efate island is very beautiful. Love blue lagoon. Nice barbeque lunch at naiwe beach and a great place to get close to turtles. Rarru falls is very picturesque and love the water taxi ride on port vila harbour back to the ship.
Noumea is an interesting city to explore. the totem poles and wood carvings are quite impressive. Lots of lookout advantage points to take in the scenery. Signal island tour is really good value-lots of turtles, fish, birds & the water taxi ride is fun in rough seas
