This excellent exotic destination surely represents the Pacific Islands, a unique archipelago scattered throughout this immense ocean. A few companies keep their ships in this area year-round. Many others arrive here only in some periods of the year and others still only use it as a stopover during longer around-the-world cruises. For the itineraries that don’t have a homeport in these islands, the departures are usually from the West Coast of South America or California or from the opposite side of the ocean from Australia or New Zealand. Whether it is Polynesia or instead the Society Islands, the Marquesas, Fiji or Samoa ... a cruise here is sure to be a unique experience not found anywhere else in the world.
