When the stunning South Pacific Islands finally appear on your horizon, prepare for the epitome of paradise.

Meanwhile, on the islands of Tahiti, Raiatea, Moorea and Bora-Bora, you’ll be immersed in a mix of uncanny tranquillity and unmolested beauty as you uncover their out-of-this-world beaches and crystal clear waters, set to back-drops of rolling valleys and towering peaks. And, you’ll even get to visit Tonga, the iconic ‘island where time begins’, as you complete your journey with a relaxing week of Pacific Ocean cruising to New Zealand.
