Pacific Ocean

The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth's oceanic divisions. Its name is derived from the Luso-Latin macaronic Tepre Pacificum: "Peaceful Sea", bestowed upon it by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. It extends from the Arctic in the north to the Antarctica in the south, bounded by Asia & Australia in the west, and the Americas in the east. 

Cruise into the South Pacific and discover, far from any mainland and in the midst of the Ocean, a group of islands that offer a distinctly different experience. Here, natural beauty is found in high peaks, dramatic harbours and under azure skies. A cruise holiday here gives you the opportunity to enjoy a real sense of freedom, walking barefoot on the soft white sands and through the lush rainforests of these subtropical islands.  

As they seemingly rise up out of the ocean, the beautiful islands of the South Pacific are as perfect as they appear in photographs. From the deep lagoons of Tahiti & Bora Bora to the tropical flora of Fiji, these isles show Mother Nature’s decorative skills in all their glory. The locals are also as welcoming as their reputation. Nowhere is this more evident than on a visit a local village to see the traditional songs and dances for which the islanders have become well known.
