10 Night Pacific Islands Cruise departing roundtrip from Sydney onboard Carnival Spirit.
You’re gonna need more fingers (and toes) to count all the things to do on board
Carnival Spirit can be summed up in one word: amazing. Well, maybe two words: amazing and exciting. Okay, make it two words plus one hyphenated word: amazing, exciting and jaw-dropping.
Highlights of this cruise include:
It may be oceans away, but the welcome will make you feel right at home. From the moment you arrive you’re greeted with a big ol’ smile. And to make you feel extra special, the locals set up their markets at the port just for you. So get your pirate persona out and hunt for some treasures me hearties.
And the cheer continues as you venture further into the city. Even though Port Vila is Vanuatu’s busiest harbour, the people are famed for their ‘good mornings!’ And of course there’s the hearty traditional food to warm your belly. You’ll even find some (not so traditional) Aussie meat pies.
Yep, the people of Port Vila go to great lengths to make you feel right at home. It kinda feels like a big Vanuatu group hug.
Look at that white powdery sand. Kinda makes you want to make a sand angel, doesn’t it? Go ahead, there’s plenty of room. The whole island is yours for the day. That’s right, it’s uninhabited and the only people who visit are cruise passengers. So it’s all yours. And it’s the perfect size to explore the whole thing.
Because the island is just 200m wide and barely a kilometre long, you can take your time wandering around. Start with the stalls of trinkets set up by locals from neighbouring islands – hello souvenirs. Then who’s up for some hair braiding? Talk about the perfect island hairdo. Oh, and there’s the airstrip built by US soldiers during WWII. Bet you didn’t know it had one of those.
Yep, Mystery Island is full of surprises and unexpected twists. Guess that’s why they call it Mystery Island.
It won’t take long to find your French side in this city. See for yourself, mon ami. It’s got that Parisienne style, sophistication and joie de vivre, with a little sun, sand and smiles thrown in too. And the French cheer is totally infectious. Trust me, you’ll be shouting bonjour! to strangers before you know it.
Aside from ordering delicious croissants (in perfect French of course), there’s plenty of other great stuff to keep you busy. All you gotta do is choose which is more your style. Are you more in the mood for a day at the beach? Or would you rather the hustle and bustle of the city? Perhaps a bit of both?
Whatever you choose, this capital city is sure to please everyone’s tastes. Especially if your tastes happen to have a craving for something French.
