Pacific Islands from Sydney
Jump on board the Carnival Spirit with a luxury ten night cruise that navigates its way across the gorgeous Pacific Islands from Sydney in early April. During your travels around Noumea, Mystery Island and Lifou Isle, you’re able to sunbake on open swimming pools, enjoy beverages at the bar and be thoroughly entertained at Pharaoh’s Palace Lounge or the late-night comedy act in Club Cool. Worried your kids will have nothing to do? With great youth programs, a 9-hole mini golf course and Techno Arcade, there’s great activities for the whole family to enjoy, living up to the cruise’s “Fun Ship” experience!
Immerse yourself in a stunning 10-night cruise from Sydney, exploring the sunny Port Vila, Lifou and Isles of Pines on the Pacific Pearl. Boasting with one of the most unique landscapes the South Pacific offers, Lifou Isle is blessed with steep cliffs, sandy beaches and crystal waters, conserving the traditions of the Kanak culture and people. Your last destination before making your way back to Sydney is the magnificent Isle of Pines, located 50 kilometres south east of the mainland, holding a reputation for white beaches, blue skies and warm waters.
Short Comedy Cruise
Explore little bites of cruising aboard the Pacific Jewel on a 3-night comedy cruise you deserve. Leaving on April the 2nd from Fremantle, cruise from Sydney to Auckland having a barrel of laughs. To fully indulge in your cruise experience, jump in the biggest spa afloat in the southern hemisphere and the amusing high-wire circus arena and trapeze aboard the Pacific Jewel. Whether you’d like to travel alone, with your partner, friends or family, there are activities and great cuisines to cater for each palate.
Pacific Island Hopper
Enjoy a week’s break from the 4th of April with a cruise vacation to the Pacific Islands from Brisbane to Noumea, Lifou Isle and Vila. Aboard the Pacific Dawn ship, relish in word-class entertainment from the Dome and the International Show Lounge as well as the mouth-watering pizzeria, restaurants, casino and health spa. From the French-chic ambiance of Noumea to the ancient culture of Lifou and the Caribbean atmosphere in Vila, your eyes are sent to a buffet of picturesque views and sandy beaches.
