Secret Treasures Cruise- 11 nights in June 2012



Get in quick for the amazing last-minute deals on this cruise. Secret Treasures will introduce you properly to Vanuatu and its tropical treasures. Departing from Sydney, there is a stop at the beautiful Isle of Pines in New Caledonia for a break from sea days before continuing to Mystery Island in Vanuatu. This is an uninhabited piece of paradise, with just a few locals who come for the day to sell handicrafts to cruise passengers. The next stop is the charming city of Port Vila, Vanuatu's capital city set on a natural harbour. Peruse the markets here or sit in a cafe and watch the comings and goings of fishing boats. Pentecost Island is the next stop and is one of the real secret treasures of Vanuatu- here is the sport that gave birth to bungy jumping, vine jumping. Locals tie vines to their ankles and jump off high platforms! A terrifying custom, but one that is entertaining to watch. The island is also home to some absolutely stunning scenery. Before the return to Sydney, the cruise also stops at Luganville, a major export centre for Vanuatu. The town is a walkable distance from the chips and overlooks the pretty Segond Channel. A few sea days before returning to Sydney will help you fully relax!

About the Pacific Pearl:

The Pacific Pearl is, like the rest of the fleet, a fun-loving ship with plenty of things to do, both active and sedentary! Hit the gym, pool, mini-golf court or rock-climbing wall to work up a sweat, or relax at the spa, in one of the many bars with live music or a sports game, or in the Adults-only Oasis. The main dining room will tickle your tastebuds, as will casual fare by the pool. For a gourmet experience, try Luke Mangan's Salt Grill.
