Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Fri 29 Mar 2013 Brisbane, Australia 4.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise 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 1 Apr 2013 Noumea, New Caledonia 8.00am 5.00pm
Fijian Jewels 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 Tue 2 Apr 2013 Isle Of Pines, New Caledonia 7.00am 4.00pm
Fijian Jewels Cruise The Isle of Pines is located in the Pacific Ocean, in the archipelago of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France. With 60 km of coastline and surrounded by its own extensive reef system, the Isle is world renowned for its distinctive columnar pine trees. Then there’s the unspoilt beauty of crystal clear water and glorious fine white sandy beaches, as well as a truly carefree lifestyle. Apart from the island's fabulous flora and fauna, interspersed with wild tropical orchids, ferns, pines and palms, as well as the magnificent lagoons that offer snorkelling and scuba diving, there are some hidden treasures that should not be missed.

Escorted tours are readily available, or you can hire a car and explore for yourself. You might enjoy horse-riding in the forest or, indeed, along the water's edge. Visit the Reine Hortense Caves, which according to legend were the retreat of Queen Hortense during tribal wars, or climb the picturesque 260 m N'ga Peak, from which you can see the whole island and surrounding islets. Shop for sandalwood and sarongs at market stalls, explore Vao village, and visit the churches and some of the natural grottos and landmarks of this lovely island.

A fifteen-minute walk from the wharf are the ruins of the old convict prison barracks that show just how tough life was for these prisoners. A tour or local bus trip to the Natural Aquarium at the southern end of Oro Bay on the other side the island takes about 30 minutes and offers awesome views on the way. Add to this a 15 minute stroll through pristine forest and a shallow creek, and then plunge in for snorkelling to eyeball angelfish, giant clams and clownfish. Back in town shop for sandalwood and sarongs at market stalls, and explore Vao village.

6 Wed 3 Apr 2013 Port Vila, Vanuatu 9.00am 6.00pm
Fijian Jewels 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.

8 Fri 5 Apr 2013 Nadi, Fiji 8.00am 5.00pm
Fijian Jewels 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'.

9 Sat 6 Apr 2013 Suva, Fiji 8.00am 5.00pm
Fijian Jewels 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.

There is a great cruise departing 30 March 2014, from Sydney to Kobe, Japan (22 nights). Then until September 2014 she takes short cruises around Japan’s islands. The return journey from Kobe to Sydney is in September 2014 (23 nights). Sun Princess will be based in Sydney until March 2015, cruising around New Zealand and to South Pacific islands. 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. In April 2015 consider the journey from Sydney to Kobe, Japan, over 24 nights, at a very good fare.

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.

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.

(Of course a continental breakfast can be delivered to your stateroom, and there is a stateroom menu.)

Passengers booked in cabins with balconies can order several special, romantic meals to be served restaurant-style on the verandah. Order special dietary requests before sailing.
