A Pacific pearl of a trip with ecruising
Next Spring why not treat yourself to the tour of the South Pacific with ecruising’s sensational 19-night Pearl Harbour to Sydney Harbour cruise package.
Commencing in Honolulu on 26 September 2020, this itinerary from one of Australia’s leading travel experts, offers up an unparalleled opportunity to experience some of the South Pacific’s most stunning and iconic destinations, onboard Celebrity Solstice, plus 2 nights at Honolulu’s magnificent Hilton Hawaii Village beforehand.
The luxurious Hilton Hawaiian Village is Waikiki’s only true resort destination, located on the widest stretch of the world-famous stretch beach on the island of Oahu’s south shore. Relax and do as much – or as little, as you like on the pristine white sands of Duke Kahanamoku Beach & Lagoon fronting hotel, making sure to leave some time to explore the Hawaiian capital with its myriad attractions from Pearl Harbour to Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States, not to mention a buzzing dining, nightlife and shopping scene.
On 28 September farewell Honolulu as you prepare to embark upon the next stage of your journey – a 17-night cruise onboard Celebrity Solstice bound for Sydney, taking in French Polynesia and New Zealand along the way.
Ranked amongst Condé Naste Traveler’s 20 top large cruise ships in 2014, the highly decorated Solstice features ultra-modern styling, sophisticated spas, tranquil relaxation areas and a wealth of fantastic dining options, not to mention beautifully designed staterooms and suites, the distinctive Lawn Club – a half-acre of real grass perched at the very top of the ship, and two sensational pools, making it the perfect place to bask in a little Spring sunshine.
On board, your first port of call is Lahaina on Hawaii’s Maui Island, for a chance to enjoy some whale-watching, a helicopter ride over the dormant Haleakalā volcano and the spectacular Manawainui Valley waterfalls or play a panoramic round of golf at 1,100 feet overlooking the Pacific.
In French Polynesia, immerse yourself in Bora Bora’s turquoise seas, stunning sunsets, coral reefs, and volcanic landscapes, while a stopover in capital, Papeete, on the main island of Tahiti is the perfect base from which to discover the Island nation’s intriguing blend of French lifestyle and Polynesian culture including the fascinating Paul Gaugin Museum.
Crossing the international date line, spend a day in Auckland where you can explore New Zealand’s most cosmopolitan city with its melting pot of British, Asian, Pacific, and Māori cultures, and visit its many attractions including the iconic Auckland Sky Tower commanding 360 degree panoramic views over Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island, the extensive collection of Maori artefacts housed at Auckland Museum and the upscale shops and cafes along Parnell Road. Sailing further north, admire the pristine beauty of the sub-tropical Bay of Islands, not to mention a chance to glimpse the many ‘locals’ including dolphins, penguins, marlins, whales and bird life, for which the area is famous.
Heading across the Tasman, relax and enjoy your last few nights at sea before disembarking in Sydney on 16 October 2020.
