About South Pacific Cruises

The South Pacific enjoys a slow, relaxed pace of life with a tropical climate all year long. Traditionally, the best time to visit the area is the dry season, between May and October. The weather is generally drier and less humid, with sea breezes refreshing travelers seeking a more comfortable climate. Honeymooners will enjoy solstice time around late March and late September, when rays of sunshine stream across the water to show off lagoons and corals in spectacular style.

Due to popularity, July and August can be much busier times to visit the area. As a result, prices rise higher to match demand, while late December is less busy for those who wish to beat the crowds.

Major departure ports for the South Pacific include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Perth and Singapore. These contrast with the vastly smaller ports visited, such as Honiara in the Solomon Islands and Papeete.

At ports like Singapore, visitors modern infrastructure, and easy navigability, make a day-long port call easily managed. Major tourist attractions are found around Orchard Road, Sentosa and the colonial district. Perth enjoys a cosmopolitan vibe with plenty of bars and restaurants as well as the excellent Western Australia Maritime Museum, which is just a short walk from where the ships dock.

Smaller ports, such as Hilo, Hawaii, also offer plenty to enjoy. Despite being the hop-off point for shore excursions to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the city of Hilo itself is full of history and charm. The port of Koror also has sights to see, but many find the real star of the show to be mountainous scenery.

For those longing for a tropical island experience, Princess Cruises offers a fifteen-day tour on the Grand Princess, which includes a late-night stop at Honolulu to enjoy its famous nightlife. On board, there’s an opportunity to learn about Hawaiian culture by trying local instruments and crafts. The itinerary includes four Hawaiian Islands, as well as a stop in Mexico, before returning to port at San Francisco.

For a luxury South Pacific cruising experience, Paul Gauguin Cruises visits the Society Islands and Tuamotus on a ten-day tour. Starting from Tahiti, it continues to Bora Bora to enjoy the beach, and has plenty of choices for shore excursions. Visitors can encounter sharks and stingrays, take a trip in a glass-bottom boat, and enjoy a breezy island tour or snorkel amongst the incredible marine.

For a chance to visit some of the Pacific’s most exciting cities in a tropical paradise, Crystal Cruises offers a sixteen-night trip. Departing from Los Angeles to take in Honolulu and Lahaina, passengers canå enjoy several lazy days relaxing on the open ocean before arriving at Vancouver aboard their Crystal Symphony ship.
