Sunshine Melodies: 9 nights in January 2013

This 9- night cruise on the Pacific Pearl to some amazing destinations in French Polynesia will relax and amaze you! The first stop after a few days chilling onboard the Pearl is Port Vila, the charming capital of Vanuatu. Here you can peruse the handicraft markets and just explore the amazing tropical town. There are several shore tours available here including a visit to the chief's meeting house! The next stop is the tiny and uninhabited Mystery Island in Vanuatu, then the gorgeous Isle of Pines in New Caledonia, famous for its pine trees, white sand and turquoise water- a true paradise! Enjoy a few more days at sea and take advantage of the ship's facilities on the way back to Sydney.

About the Pacific Pearl

The Pearl provides a great holiday, with both opportunities to unwind and do nothing and enough activity and entertainment so you'll never be bored! There are loungers around the pool,  spas, an adults-only area with luxury loungers and a bar, and a spa favcility with amazing treatments available. For those wishing to be a bit more active, there is the rock-climbing wall, mini-golf, sport courts and a fully-equipped gym. For evening entertainment, there is always something going on in the bars and the theatre. Dining happens a la carte in the main dining room or at a varied buffet, and there is the Salt Grill restaurant for a gourmet experience- this has a small cover charge.
