The South Pacific is defined by vast expanses of open ocean dotted with idyllic island oases. That's why the best way to experience this region is on a cruise. Many of the boats we have included here operate exclusively in the South Pacific, guaranteeing a captain & crew that will expertly navigate through the deep ocean, such as the Oceanic Discoverer, the Coral fleet, and the Caledonian Sky. Aboard the Aranui & Aranui 5, you'll have a unique cruise, as half of this hybrid boat is dedicated to a comfortable Polynesian cruise & the other half functions as a cargo vessel. The other boats, like Le Soleal & the Nat Geo Orion, vary their itineraries, so availability changes throughout the year. Between catamarans, expedition ships, luxury oceanliners, & sailing boats, we offer tours to satisfy all maritime interests.
