Overview of Region

Some 7,500 islands, most situated south of the Tropic of Cancer in the Pacific Ocean, constitute the South Pacific. Grouped into the three main sub-regions of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia, the island nations are home to more than six million people from a diverse variety of backgrounds.

Melanesia consists of several western islands, most notably Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and New Guinea. Further afield, American Samoa, Tonga, the Cook Islands and French Polynesia make up the bulk of Polynesia, while eight tiny islands north of the equator, including scenic Palau, form much of Micronesia.

Boasting some of the world's most spectacular island landscapes, the South Pacific islands are for many visitors a must-see destination. What better way to see them than by cruising the tranquil waters between the islands?

Who goes there?

Australians love visiting the South Pacific and today, plenty of cruise lines offer a wide range of exciting itineraries to this enthralling destination.

Big-ship cruise lines such as P&O Australia, Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia visit the region all year round, while the Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Cunard Line and Holland America Line offer itineraries from September through to May.

Cruise enthusiasts can also indulge in South Pacific cruise on the decidedly luxurious Paul Gauguin, which services the region year-round. Alternatively, enjoy a short trip to the Yasawa Islands with small-ship lines, Captain Cook Cruises and Blue Lagoon Cruises.

Best time to go

Given its warm temperatures and fresh sea breezes, the dry season from May to October is often the best time to cruise the South Pacific. From November through to April, the wet season rolls in, with tropical storms and extreme humidity the order of the day.

The South Pacific also attracts plenty of tourists during the July to August and December to January school holiday periods, so plan around these busy times if you wish to avoid the crowds.

Highlights

Among the countless highlights of a South Pacific cruise, here are a select few to get you started.

  • Dive among historic World War Two shipwrecks in the Soloman Islands
  • Visit one of Nadi’s most recognisable landmarks, Sri Siva Subramaniya Swami Temple, a magnificently-decorated Hindu temple
  • Take a hike on Fiji’s Nounou Mountain - also known as 'Sleeping Giant' - and admire the scenic surrounds of bountiful blossoms and native plants
  • Discover the abundance of colourful coral and exotic marine life while snorkelling at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve in Samoa
  • Be enchanted by Bora Bora’s crystal-clear lagoons on a day of snorkelling or diving.
