Cruising the South Pacific

If you are a Survivor fan, you might have had a yearning to visit Vanuatu in the South Pacific.   Vanuatu’s 83 island’s offer a mix of fascinating tribal cultures and communities, beach getaways and some of the best scenery in the world. The underwater world is just as magnificent, with superb visibility, warm water and numerous accessible dive sites, including that of the famous ‘President Coolidge’ shipwreck.

While it sounds like paradise I’m guessing you’d prefer to visit the islands in very different circumstances than the crew of the reality show! Try this on for size: a P&O cruise on Pacific Dawn that stops at Champagne Bay, renowned for its sweeping curve of pristine sand – unquestionably the whitest in the region. Located on the north east coastline of Espiritu-Santo, Vanuatu.

Pacific Dawn has recently been in dry dock and there are some new additions: connecting cabins (great for families and a first for the P&O Cruises fleet) a giant LED Big Screen, MIX cocktail bar and pub-style venue, The Orient. The main restaurant has been transformed into The Waterfront Restaurant, new furnishings have been implemented in the Marquee Theatre and all of the suites and mini suites have been refurbished. There’s also the tasty new addition of a New Zealand Natural ice cream bar on top deck.
