The Pacific Ocean has more than eleven million square miles of ocean dotted with islands, some no larger than a suburban back yard.

The names themselves conjure up images of times past, great voyages of discovery and pitched battles, now etched in history - Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Samoa - they all have a charm and allure which has attracted explorers, adventurers and fortune seekers since the dawn of time.

Thirteen island nations, with a total population of just over 6 million people offer so much to see and do. Going on a cruise to the rich and diverse South Pacific will let you experience the enchanting islands and beautiful people that for hundreds of years stirred the mind and excited the imagination.

Did this cruise Jan 2015. Would not recommend to the older traveller. Entertainment theme was "Rock the Boat" and there was plenty of that going on in the evenings in the Promanade and the Disco. The entertainment in the Theatre was amazing every night and the Ice Show was a show stopper. Cabins were comfortable and clean. The staff in all areas were great (except for a few older ones in the main Dining Roomn who have been there too long). Food service was very good however the buffet became a bit boring- same things every day. Ended up eating in the Main Restaurant for Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner. Dream Works is great for the kids however there were very few children on board and the characters turned up everywhere. There were no adult movies in the evening, again geared up for children.
