Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Size was ok - not much room to move around the bed when it is as a queen but comfortable enough. Cabin was spotless - great room steward.

Ports of call

Sydney, Australia Did not visit port

Boarded ship here arrived day of sailing - so no exploration of the town.

Noumea, New Caledonia Did not visit port

Been there several times before and do not enjoy it as a port stop

Lifou Isle, New Caledonia

4 out of 5
Lovely little island :) enjoyed the walk up to the Church - so gorgeous up there. Beaches are lovely, remember your reef shoes and a mask and snorkel.

Mystery Island, Vanuatu

5 out of 5
Gorgeous spot - reef shoes, mask and snorkel a must. So relaxing and restful.

Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu

4 out of 5
The only negative at this stage is the taxi drivers but once the port is finished with new buildings etc it will be less stressful! Beautiful spot to go, lots of lovely places to visit.

Luganville, Vanuatu

4 out of 5
We visiting Millionaire Bay - couldn't believe our eyes! Saw the blue pool and went to a village to see the water music that was absolutely brilliant and well worth visiting!

Champagne Bay, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu

5 out of 5
What a beautiful spot to be in..... sand is like champagne, the water is crystal clear heaven on earth!
