A South Pacific cruise offers the allure of unrivaled natural beauty and mysterious island cultures. Vanuatu, Krakatau, Java, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga â€“ even the names of these islands evoke images of a fairy tale paradise so removed from our daily lives that they almost seem to exist in the fantastic. Watch water buffalo race across a rice field on the island of Sumbawa. Get a close-up look at Komodo Island's "dragons." During your trip witness the Leonid Meteor shower from the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, or travel to one of the wonders of the ancient world â€” the Buddhist temple of Borobudur. And, of course, enjoy a snorkeling trip to the Great Barrier Reef. There is no better way to access these remote islands and experience so many diverse cultures as on an adventure cruise through the South Pacific.
