Pacific Escapade: 8 nights in December 2012

This cruise from Sydney in December includes some South Pacific favourites, and visits P&O Australia's beautiful new destination, Mare in the Loyalty Islands of New Caledonia. The first port after a few days at sea is Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia. The country is almost independent but still a territory of France, meaning the French and native Kanak cultures are both present and make a beautiful, tropical city. Next is the new port call, Mare in the Loyalty Islands. Extra-special here is the inland pools that fill with seawater and are home to gorgeous coral and fish. There are also caves to explore and beautiful beaches to relax on! The Isle of Pines is the final stop before returning to Sydney.  A small island off the coast of mainland New Caledonia, it is picture-perfect and a great spot to relax band soak up the tropics before heading home.
