1 Wed 29 Aug 2012 Sydney, Australia 4.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise Cruise ships berthed at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) access sweeping views of the harbour, Opera House, CBD, Circular Quay ferry terminal, and Sydney Harbour Bridge – all within a few minutes’ walk. The OPT is currently undergoing a major expansion to berth vessels with 5000+ passengers. The new White Bay Cruise Terminal, for mid-sized vessels that can pass under the Bridge, docks two cruise ships. Facilities at both terminals are efficient, though White Bay is 30 minutes’ drive by taxi or shuttle bus to the CBD and Central Station. Long term car parking is not too far away from each terminal. During the crowded summer season cruise ships occasionally tender passengers from Athol Buoy and Point Piper Buoy. QM2 has docked at Garden Island Naval Base.

Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is Australia's first and largest city. Astride the magnificent Sydney Harbour, it has come a long way from its convict beginnings in 1788, but still exudes a rough and colonial energy. Soak up Sydney’s gorgeous harbour on a wide range of vessels including yachts, tall ships, catamarans, or even kayaks. If adventurous try a jet boat ride, or perhaps decide that there's no better way to see the sights than on a Sydney Explorer Hop-on Hop-off Harbour Cruise. Take surfing lessons at Manly and Bondi Beaches. On the harbour’s north shore are Taronga Zoo and the Sydney Aquarium, and on a tiny island in the middle of the harbour tour historic Fort Denison.

Adjacent to the OPT investigate The Rocks precinct with its images of a colourful convict past. Day options include a climb to the top of the ‘Coathanger’, tour of the Opera House, dining at the Skywalk of Sydney Tower, strolling in Hyde Park, dining at an ethnic restaurant, Duty-Free shopping, and striking up a conversation with friendly locals. One-day coach tours visit the highlights of Sydney, Hunter Valley wine region, and the spectacular Blue Mountains. Take a scenic flight over the Harbour and Pacific surfing coastline. For lovers of sport, whale-watching, sky diving, and hot air ballooning are also on offer.

4 Sat 1 Sep 2012 Noumea, New Caledonia 8.00am 5.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise Situated in the south of the country's main island Grande Terre, Noumea is the capital of the French Territory of New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean. It enjoys a sunny, moderate climate, and truly is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, where the South Pacific meets the Riviera. The city maintains much of New Caledonia's unique mix of French and old Melanesian culture, while the U.S. wartime military influence lingers. This is evidenced both in the warmth that many New Caledonian people feel towards the U.S., as well as some of the very 'American' names of several of the quarters of the city.

Noumea has excellent museums, restaurants, designer boutiques, markets, and shopping areas, which you are sure to enjoy, here in the 'Paris of the Pacific'. Some of Noumea's best-known restaurants are in the attractive tourist area of Anse Vata. The city's main square, Place des Cocotiers, is also flanked by a variety of cafes and restaurants. And to drink? Try the kava while you're in town – it's a memory you'll not quickly forget. Hiring a yacht is very popular, as are windsurfing and scuba diving. There are numerous hiking possibilities to the craggy mountainous beauty of the interior, and several ranches offer horseback riding.

There are several attractions in Noumea beyond the bays and amid the hibiscus and the bougainvillea. Learn about Noumea's history at the City Museum and Museum of Maritime, and then take in one of the most remarkable collections of Pacific artefacts in the Museum of New Caledonia. Just out of town is the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre, featuring the iconic wooden round houses of the region, an Oceanic cultures library, as well as traditional dancing and music at select times. Snorkelling is popular in Lemon Bay, and wind/kite surfers take advantage of the breezes of Anse Vata in the afternoons.

5 Sun 2 Sep 2012 Port Vila, Vanuatu 12.00pm 7.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise Port Vila, the capital city of Vanuatu (‘Land Eternal’), is situated on the south coast of the island of Efate, and is Vanuatu's most important harbour. Its magnificent setting offers stunning views of Iririki and Ifira islands. Clean and uncluttered, the waterfront area is so unpolluted, visitors are stunned to look down from the seawall and see live corals and tropical fish. The people of the country are predominately Melanesian, but there are now more than 115 distinctly different cultures and languages that thrive here, making it one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Clinging to the hillsides with marvellous views of the harbour, Vila also has a thriving cafe scene and souvenir, handicraft and duty-free shops a plenty.

To support the locally-made products visit the 'World of Wonders' store, and the fascinating outdoor markets. A great option is to hire a taxi for the day. Bargain vigorously and pay at the end of the day. Visit the National Museum to view outrigger canoes and ceremonial headdresses, and the Ekasup Cultural Village in the rainforest nearby. Here you can learn how locals prepare food, watch weaving demonstrations, and shiver at spine-tingling tales of cannibals from olden times. Not to be forgotten are big game fishing, and scuba diving, both very popular among the visitors.

Other options include: visiting and even abseiling down the 50-metre-high Cascade Waterfall deep in the rainforest; taking a head-spinning harbour dash in a jet boat; snorkelling directly off the beach of Hideaway Island; and even taking a sea-plane ride to enjoy the magnificent views. Visitors also have the opportunity to try some kayaking around Mele Bay, go horse riding in beautiful rainforests, and even learn sailing in a shallow lagoon.

7 Tue 4 Sep 2012 Dravuni, Fiji 8.00am 6.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise Dravuni Island is a dramatically rugged volcanic island in the scenic Kadavu group of islands, part of Fiji. The island is home to a couple of hundred friendly Fijians, concentrated in a delightful village that shelters beneath tall palm trees. The island is known for its glorious, pristine beaches and fine weather. Energetic visitors can stretch their legs on a pretty trek up grassy slopes to Dravuni's highest peak from which there is a fantastic view of the surrounding islands. You can really 'get away from it all' as there are no shops, crowds, or anything to disturb you. It is a truly restful port of call.

For those who don’t appreciate walking for a rocky 1-2 hours, a boat trip around the island is very attractive. Take an island tour, hire a car and set your own pace, grab a snorkel and head for the water, or simply find a stretch of unoccupied beach and bask. There are vendors along the beach, but there is no shouting or pushing to get visitors’ attention. If you want to check out the booth, then that’s fine.

8 Wed 5 Sep 2012 Savusavu, Fiji 8.00am 6.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise Nestled between green hills and deep water, Namaka Creek to the SE of Vanua Levu, Fiji's second largest island, is Savusavu - a natural, lush and beautiful paradise. It is as though time has stood still for thirty years. With only one main street that is a hub of activity, it does have all the essentials, including quaint cafes and restaurants, banks, a post office, and a fascinating busy local open-air vegetable market. Tourism is fast developing so there are boutique resorts, but don't forget to visit the famous Planters Club, still a centre for social activity today.

Several independent operators offer scuba diving, sailing trips, fishing, cultural tours, snorkelling and kayaking. Of special interest is the site of the geothermal hot springs, just a short walk up the hill behind the Morris Hedstrom Supermarket where, in the afternoons, you can see pots of root crops steaming atop the springs. Be sure to check out the new Tourist Info Spot located at the Cafe Bula Re, opposite the Post Office, for more information on local activities and attractions. It truly is a delightful visit to times passed by, at Savusavu, Fiji's hidden paradise.

9 Thu 6 Sep 2012 Suva, Fiji 8.00am 6.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise 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.

10 Fri 7 Sep 2012 Nadi, Fiji 8.00am 6.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise 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'.

12 Sun 9 Sep 2012 Lifou, New Caledonia 7.00am 2.00pm
Fiji & Sth Pacific Cruise 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.

Leaving Japanese waters in October 2015, Sun Princess departs for Sydney. The fare is very low, see some of Vietnam, and enjoy your own peaceful sea days. From Sydney visit New Zealand or Pacific islands. A most popular round-trip Cherry Blossom Cruise of 42 nights leaves Sydney late April 2015. Until October 2015 Sun Princess sails from Sydney to PNG, the Great Barrier Reef, and Pacific islands. Late in 2015 the ship repositions to Fremantle. Some exciting port-intensive tours head for SE Asia, and in January 2016 plan ahead for a circle of the Indian Ocean. Princess Cruises organises on-shore tours that can be booked before sailing or during the cruise. For some voyages pre- and post-cruises tours are available to extend your stay in major ports.

Accommodation
There are six main categories of staterooms - Suites with balcony, Mini-Suites with balcony, Balcony, Oceanview Deluxe, Oceanview, and Interior – and 28 grades, which give a broad choice according to guests’ needs of space and price. All cabins have pleasing décor and reasonable storage space, satellite TV, refrigerator, and 24-hour room service. Fresh fruit (by request), evening bed turn-down, bathroom lotions, and bathrobes (by request) come with every stateroom. Standard cabins are well-designed and functional. Some cabins accommodate a third and even a fourth person. Generally twin beds can be made up into a queen-size bed. Bedding is top quality. There are no interconnecting or single cabins. There are many wheelchair-accessible cabins, and guests with disabilities are well catered for. An in-cabin dining menu is available 24-hours.

Food and Dining
There are two main dining rooms (no Anytime Dining), and dinner is served in two set seatings in each dining room with the same waitstaff and assigned tables and tablemates. Dress code is smart casual, and on cruises longer than three days dress for a formal night for every week of sailing. Breakfast and lunch are provided in an open seating arrangement. (Of course a continental breakfast can be delivered to your stateroom, and there is a stateroom menu.) The alternative eating venue is Stirling Steakhouse (extra charge, reservations) for really good steak and barbecued chicken. Passengers booked in cabins with balconies can order several special, romantic meals to be served restaurant-style on the verandah - Ultimate Balcony Dining. Order special dietary requests before sailing.

Entertainment
In the evening having two show lounges (both theatre and cabaret style) is a great way to give passengers more entertainment choices. During her 2010 refurbishment additions included a Movies Under the Stars screen in the main pool area for new movie releases, sporting events and concert videos. Adults have their own private sunbathing area, the Sanctuary, at the front of the ship. Add seven bars and lounges, nightclub and dance floors, and the casino, to the list of evening options. Alternatively, just stroll around and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café. Weddings are officiated by the Captain.
