Immerse yourself in one of the most interesting and diverse places on earth - the South Pacific. A cruise through the South Pacific will take you to some of the most remote islands on the planet. The ancient civilizations of Easter Island left giant 100-ton stone Moai for travelers to ponder. Expeditions on small cruise ships enable you to access idyllic islands like the Cook Islands, Society Islands, Hawaii, the Marquesas and the spectacular Bora Bora. In addition, you can visit the rainbow Great Barrier Reef or snorkel with the giant pelagic species across the top of Australia. If you want to visit a more remote corner of the world, you can choose to explore the lush tropical archipelago of the Philippines or the fascinating cultures of Melanesia.
