The vast Pacific Ocean is home to an equally vast array of islands, peoples, cultures and lifestyles. From Samoa to New Zealand, from Fiji to Australia, from Micronesia to Vanuatu, the warmth of the welcome is matched only by the warmth of the climate.
Tropical islands in scattered archipelagos, teeming cities and deserted coastlines, vast ocean panoramas that shrink to tiny bays and lagoons, the South Pacific has them all.
Almost everywhere you visit will be utterly different to the last stop. Culturally, there is a world of difference between French Polynesia and Australia. Geographically, too, the rugged, mountainous coast of New Zealand is utterly different to the atolls and lagoons in Tahiti. Samoans are unlike Fijians, who are unlike Micronesians, and yet they all offer a welcome and approach that is reassuringly similar.
Equally, you can choose almost any length of trip. At one extreme is a two night hop along the northern Australian coastline, while at the other is a choice of cruises that are fully two months long - up to 60 nights at sea, crossing the international dateline not once, not twice, but three times in all, taking in the entire Pacific from Auckland to Sydney to the Solomon Islands to Hawaii and ultimately Los Angeles.
There truly is something for everyone here. Whether you‘re an intrepid adventurer or dedicated to easy-going relaxation, it’s possible to find a South Pacific cruise to satisfy your every urge.
The South Pacific is a huge ocean and whilst we cannot detail the vast array of itineraries available here, we shall do our upmost provide an overview of the most popular itineraries.
First, other than round-trip Tahiti cruises, the majority of South Pacific luxury cruises are not round-trip from one port. The most popular ports to depart from are Los Angeles, Sydney, Auckland and Bali. Because of the sheer size of the pacific ocean and the many islands being spread over a considerable distance, most South Pacific luxury cruises are of a duration from 12 to 18 nights. But it is possible to enjoy a decadent month or so cruising around this tropical paradise.
Those luxury cruises that depart from Los Angeles often call into the Hawaiian islands before travelling on to Kiribati, Tuvalu and The beautiful islands of Micronesia. The Cruises that depart from Sydney, Auckland and Bali often call into New Caledonia, Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu. They will also call into Micronesia in addition to various ports of call in either Australia or New Zealand.
At Sovereign, our favourite ports in the South Pacific include Sydney, New Caledonia, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Fiji, New Guinea, Micronesia, Duneden, the Marshall islands and Auckland.
