A 10 day South Pacific cruise on P&O’s Pacific Jewel.
The Pacific Jewel departed Sydney and was at sea for two days before arriving at Noumea. The next ports on the South Pacific cruise were Mystery Island, Vila, Lifou and finally the Isle of Pines.
The cruise was taken in July – The weather at that time of year was very pleasant in the South Pacific. Noumea was around 23 degrees celcius and Port Vila around 28 degrees.
P&O arranged shore tours or you could just find a taxi or local tour operator and take a guided or self guided tour.
