South Pacific- 10 nights in February 2013

This cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas leaves from Sydney and visits  islands and towns in New Caledonia and Vanuatu. The first stop after some relaxing sea days is the beautiful capital city of New Caledonia, Noumea. This city is best explored by the famous 'Petit Train!' Next on the itinerary is a stop at tiny Mystery Island. This islet is a part of Vanuatu and completely uninhabited, making it a perfect castaway tropical island.

Lifou comes after Mystery Island, back in New Caledonia. This is an archipelago full of friendly locals who will welcome you to 'their place,' before the cruise moves on to the city of Port Vila, capital of Vanuatu, where you can sit by the water and watch the fishing boats come and go in the natural harbour. The final stop before returning to Sydney is the Isle of Pines in Vanuatu, which is what its name suggests- an isle of pines, with stunning white sand and clear waters!

About the Rhapsody of the Seas

The Rhapsody has recently been upgraded to make for an even better cruise experience. Aside from the usual Royal Caribbean sumptuous decor and features, the ship now boasts a poolside cinema, flat screen TVs in the staterooms, iPads in the rooms to access the daily onboard programmes, menus and special events, the complimentary Park Cafe, and more! The main dining room, buffet, and a few more options are included in your cruise fare, and there are a lot of great specialty restaurants, which you can experience for a great price with a dining package.
