Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Fri 19 Dec 2014 Brisbane, Australia 4.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise C430 Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal at Hamilton, up-river and 6 km from the CBD, is accessed by ships that clear the twin Gateway Bridges. Pacific Dawn sails year-round from here to the South Pacific, Great Barrier Reef, New Zealand, and PNG, and in 2014 she will be joined by Pacific Jewel and Sea Princess. Larger vessels berth at the Port of Brisbane where the river enters Moreton Bay, 20 km from the CBD. In early 2014 Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, P&O’s Aurora, and Dawn Princess depart from here on World Cruises to the UK, with sectors to Asia, the Middle East, Mediterranean and South Africa. The semi-tropical city of Brisbane, situated on the Brisbane River, is the capital of the Sunshine State.

A day’s trip away are the Sunshine and Gold Coasts with their beautiful hinterlands, and the famous Australia Zoo. In the CBD take a free bus around past heritage landmarks, such as the historic Windmill and the Old Commissariat Store, some built by convicts in 1828. Do visit the newly-restored City Hall. Across the river from the CBD is South Bank, with its sandy beach and eateries, Gallery of Modern Art, Museum & Science Centre, Piazza and ferry terminal. Take a CityCat upstream to view river-side parklands, the University of Queensland, and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (a world top-ten zoo). Feed and handle the animals, home to koalas, kangaroos, Australian birds, Tasmanian devils, wombats, dingoes and reptiles. Be photographed cuddling a koala or a python. Climb the Story Bridge at dusk, it’s fantastic.

Take a bus to Mount Coot-tha and take in a 300 degree view of the entire city, while visiting the interesting cafes. The Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a great vantage point to see the Brisbane River and city buildings, while those wanting ‘action’ can go rock climbing and abseiling with the Riverlife Adventure Centre. Meet with the local aboriginal tribe, Mirrabooka, and share in rich Aboriginal culture presented by the Yuggera Aboriginal Dancers in the natural bushland of Kangaroo Point.

4 Mon 22 Dec 2014 Lifou, New Caledonia 7.00am 4.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise C430 Lifou is the largest of the Loyalty Islands, a north-eastern Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France, in the Pacific Ocean. Kanak culture is most present in Lifou, which has managed to preserve its own traditional authenticity. The welcoming people receive visitors as favoured guests. The island's natural wealth, consisting of long, deserted beaches, and crystal-clear lagoons, make snorkelling and scuba diving very popular. With multi-coloured sea life and coral fauna not found anywhere else in the world, this is not surprising. Get your camera ready to take photos of the deceptively-fast majestic turtles that roam these waters.

With rocks such as the Cliffs of Jokin rising like legendary fortresses, invigorating walks such as the 30-minute walk to the Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel on the headland are great ways to enjoy a wealth of glorious landscapes. Visit the local marketplace, and learn about the residents' imaginary environment filled with myths and legends. If possible get permission to visit the main 'hut' of the Hnathalo tribe, with its huge open fireplace that is set in a garden behind the chief's house. A visit to the Mucaweng Vanilla Plantation set within a beautiful forest is also very popular.

Lifou's beaches are also popular destinations for watersports such as canoeing, windsurfing and sailing. You can hire single canoes from $16 per person per hour and this is a great way to view the enormous cliffs from below. Other places of interest include: Luengoni Bay - on the east coast - home to a stunning turquoise lagoon with a spectacular coral rock emerging from its depths; Lifou's caves which include the Grotto D'Avio with its 4km-long stalactites and jade waterhole; and the Devil's Cave, near the village of Tingeting, which has three huge interlinked caverns.

5 Tue 23 Dec 2014 Santo (Luganville), Vanuatu 10.00am 7.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise C430 Santo is the largest island in Vanuatu. It belongs to the archipelago of the New Hebrides in the Pacific region of Melanesia, and is home to Vanuatu's highest peak, the 1,879 m Mount Tabwemasana. The town of Luganville, on Santo's SE coast, is Vanuatu's second-largest settlement, and the provincial capital. The island is possibly best known for its renowned diving and snorkelling spot, Million Dollar Point, where visitors can 'feel' the US and Allied forces’ presence from WWII. This equipment grave, including tractors, aeroplanes and millions of 7-Up and Coca-Cola bottles lined up on the seabed, makes for an unforgettable experience.

There are also many reefs and beautiful beaches to visit. The main road – wide enough to accommodate four army trucks – is home to interesting shopping at all-in-one stores, as well as tourist boutiques, crafts markets, local restaurants, and most importantly, friendly faces. Activities include tours to villages, riding a horse along a tropical beach, trekking through exotic jungle, taking a buggy tour to visit coconut plantations, and paddling a dugout or a kayak. You could hire a cab, scooter, or taxi, to explore the island at you own pace, and even visit a cave or grab a rod and catch a fish.

7 Thu 25 Dec 2014 Nadi, Fiji 7.00am 5.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise C430 Nadi, known as the 'gateway to Fiji', is the third largest centre in Fiji. It is popular among travellers seeking to take ferries to island resorts in Fiji's western Mamanuca Group of islands. Nadi Town is tourist oriented and a great place to experience, while Namaka, near to the international airport, is also renowned for its shopping. Other places of interest include Sri Siva Subramaniva Temple, the largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere, with a range of sacred statues of Indian influence. Visit the Waqadra Botanical Gardens, and the Sleeping Giant Gardens which house Raymond Burr's magnificent orchid collection. One may then choose to take an easy 33 km side trip to Lautoka, Fiji's second largest city, a genteel contrast to Nadi.

Denaurau Island is just a matter of minutes away across a short bridge, and whisks you from the Third World into the First World, with its shopping complex at Port Denaurau. You can take long walks on the beautiful warm water beach, play volleyball or simply enjoy swimming. There are a range of organised day trips on which you could visit the Nausori Highlands or the Sabeto River Valley. Also on offer is some great diving, with a wide variety of dive sites including wall dives, swim-throughs, caves, canyons, and picturesque reef dives. Take a helicopter or hire a boat and enjoy many beautiful islands. Nadi certainly lives up to its reputation of 'the most often visited Fijian city'.

8 Fri 26 Dec 2014 Suva, Fiji 7.00am 4.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise C430 Suva is the capital and largest city of Fiji is perched on a hilly peninsula between Laucala Bay and Suva Harbour in the SE corner of the island of Viti Levu. It is a beautiful tropical city full of colour and diverse cultures. Although it is the only place in Fiji where you will see buildings taller than palm trees, local folk traditions such as fire walks, welcoming ceremonies, wood-carving and the fabrication of tree-bark cloth, remain strong. Hire a taxi for the day or take a tour and enjoy its tall modern buildings which are beautifully balanced by rich traditional colonial architecture. Interestingly, restaurants offer a great selection of cuisines including Chinese, Indian, traditional Fijian and European.

Well-known landmarks worth visiting include Suva City Library, Government House, the official residence of the President, the largest University in the South Pacific Islands, and the Fijian Museum that . There are also numerous parks such as theThurston Gardens which house the new Takashi Suzuki Garden, and Apted Park with its picturesque location at Suva Point. Albert Park, made famous when Charles Kingsford-Smith made an emergency landing here on his 1928 trans-Pacific flight, also attracts many visitors. Then there’s the Fiji Museum that displays archaeological findings dating back 3500 years, as well as cultural objects reflecting the Fijian manner of life during the past 100 years.

Colo-l-Suva Forest Park offers hiking trails, swimming and bird watching. Along with its modern shopping plazas, and the vibrant and colourful shopping area of Cumming Street, is the sprawling complex of municipal markets near the waterfront where you will find an assortment of artefacts and handicrafts. For those who love shopping, a visit to the air-conditioned shopping mall of Tappoo City is essential, though others may prefer to bargain for artefacts at the Municipal Handicraft Centre.
