Itinerary

Show / hide full Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 – Depart Adelaide (D)

Your holiday begins with a transfer to Adelaide’s Outer Harbour Passenger Terminal in time for the start of your Fiji & South Pacific cruise.

❱ Ocean cruise: Golden Princess (18 nights)

Day 2 – At sea (BLD)

Enjoy a full day at sea as you sail around the Australian coast towards Melbourne.

Day 3 – Melbourne (BLD)

Victoria may be Australia’s smallest continental state, but Melbourne, its capital, is big on everything. With a population of 4.25 million people living in 59 separately named communities within 715 square miles, Melbourne is a sprawling city offering culture, art, fashion and friendly, sports-minded Australians. It is also an easy city to explore. At the heart of the city is the Golden Mile, the city’s governmental and commercial center, home to hotels, shops, restaurants and theaters.

Days 4 to 6 – At sea (BLD)

Relax onboard the Golden Princess as it sails across the Pacific Ocean for 3 days.

Day 7 – Mare, New Caledonia (BLD)

Discover Mare, a true paradise of New Caledonia. The island is renowned for its majestic flora & fauna, natural wonders and world-class white sand beaches. Spend a day exploring the island, visiting the stunning natural aquarium or relax on the island’s picturesque beaches.

Day 8 – Port Vila, Vanuatu (BLD)

Vila is the capital of Vanuatu, an archipelago of some 83 islands in the Coral Sea. Vanuatu is a new republic, having achieved independence from France and Britain in 1988. Before then the archipelago was better known as the New Hebrides, the name given the islands by Captain Cook. Cloaked in dense rainforest, these volcanic islands were little known until World War II, when the islands of Espiritu Santo and Efate served as Allied bases. Today increasing numbers of travelers visit Vila, drawn by its easy-going charm, superb white-sand beaches and pristine rainforest. The islands are also renowned for their excellent dive sites and for their big game fishing.

Vanuatu’s visibility on the American scene increased when the CBS television series “Survivor” filmed in the archipelago. Vanuatu is also noted among anthropologist – its island of Tanna is home to the unique “John Frum” cargo cult.

Day 9 – At sea (BLD)

Relax onboard the Golden Princess as you sail across from Vanuatu to Fiji.

Day 10 – Lautoka, Fiji (BLD)

The second-largest city of Fiji, Lautoka is located in the west, on the island of Viti Levu. It is nicknamed The Sugar City due to its expansive sugarcane plantations producing the island’s most important crop. Its soft-sand beaches are fringed with swaying palm and coconut trees reflected in the crystalline turquoise waters. A drive through the city center allows glimpses of tree-lined streets, colonial houses, colorful markets and a vibrant local culture.

Day 11 – Suva, Fiji (BLD)

The Fiji archipelago is at the cross roads of the South Pacific. In the days of sailing ships, it was known as “The Cannibal Isles,” where mariners carefully avoided its fierce warriors and perfidious waters. Thankfully, Fiji’s pagan days live only in the tales recalled by tour guides – in rituals such as firewalking, Kava Ceremonies and in renditions of tribal drumming, dance and song.

Fiji is an exotic destination, with 333 islands that provide an exciting adventure or peaceful repose. The northwest region, where the sun shines almost every day and a tropical shower ends as quickly as it began, is home to the majority of the resorts. Suva, the political, administrative, educational and commercial center, has a backdrop of lush rainforest maintained by the inevitable “tropical downpour.” The people of Fiji are the most multiracial and multicultural of all South Pacific island countries – this being reflected in churches of all denominations, mosques, temples and shrines.

Built around a reef-protected natural harbor, Suva, with its colonial buildings nestled alongside modern commercial venues, shops and local markets, parks and residential sprawl, is home to nearly half of Fiji’s urban population.

Day 12 – At sea (BLD)

Relax onboard the Golden Princess as you sail across to Noumea.

Day 13 – Noumea, New Caledonia (BLD)

The capital of New Caledonia, Noumea is a little piece of France in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Before World War II, New Caledonia was a little known and seldom-visited French possession known for its penal colony and its natural resources. (Nickel smelting still plays a major role in the island economy.) Today, travelers are drawn to New Caledonia for its scenic beauty. The island is famed for its white-sand beaches while its barrier reef is the world’s second longest. The offshore waters also offer superb diving and snorkeling.

In 1774, James Cook thought the island’s rugged hills resembled those of his native Scotland. Hence he christened the island New Caledonia. The island and its outlying groups became a French colony in 1854 and an overseas department of France in 1956.

Day 14 to 16 – At sea (BLD)

Enjoy all of the activities onboard the Golden Princess as you sail across the Pacific Ocean towards Melbourne over 3 days.

Day 17 – Melbourne (BLD)

Enjoy a second day in Melbourne, with a full day in Victoria’s capital city.

Day 18 – At sea (BLD)

Enjoy a final full day at sea as the Golden Princess sails back to Adelaide.

Day 19 – Arrive Adelaide (B)

Arrive back at Adelaide’s Outer Harbour Passenger Terminal this morning. Adelaide travellers will be transferred to their home address, and all other travellers will be transferred to Adelaide Airport in time for their flight home.
