Why a Cruise Holiday in the South Pacific is now at the top of your bucket list

Long gone are the days that only elderly people took cruise holidays, nowadays anyone and everyone can take a cruise holiday, be it as a family, as a group of friends, solo or as a romantic duo. 


Thanks to competitive rates, cruise holidays are now at a reasonable price, making them a great, and indeed more environmental, alternative to holidays with flights. 

But why take a cruise in the South Pacific?

The South Pacific covers an immensely large area that is bounded by the equator to the north, Antarctica to the south, Australia and Asia to the West and South America to the east. Thus there are many, many, many stunning islands to be discovered, each more beautiful than the last. 

Here is just a taste of what the South Pacific has to offer:

Bora Bora

Contrary to popular belief, Bora Bora isn't actually a country - rather it's part of French Polynesia which is an overseas country of France. 

What Bora Bora lacks in identity though, it makes up for in beauty: stunning white beaches, breathtaking turquoise waters. This is a stop on your South Pacific Cruise that you'll never forget.




Easter Island

Again, not a country itself but rather a part of Chile located very far away in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. 

They'll be one main reason you'll want your cruise to stop here: the famous Easter Island statues that hint at civilisations of long ago. History buffs and fun-loving selfie takers alike will have a blast here!

The Galapagos

Just like Easter Island, the Galapagos is part of a South American country - this time Ecuador. But just like Easter Island it's situated far out into sea. Contrary to popular belief, the Galapagos are still part of the South Pacific Ocean (not the north).

Unparalleled island beauty aside, the main reason your cruise will stop here is no doubt for the unusual and interesting wildlife. Find out why Darwin found it so easy to discover evolution here!



New Zealand

A trip to the South Pacific Ocean wouldn't be complete without a trip to New Zealand, whether it's for incredible mountainous scenery, or just to get close to where the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Hobbit trilogy were filmed, you will fall in love here time and time again. 

We recommend choosing a cruise that makes the most of New Zealand by stopping off at lots of different points of it - including Wellington and Auckland. 

Australia

Australia has held a special place in our hearts ever since we started travelling, which is why we recommend you go here on your cruise. We actually suggest taking it a step further by departing and/or ending your cruise in Australia. You will find many cruises from Brisbane with the added bonus that you can spend time in Brisbane before/after your cruise - make sure you check out Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to get some koala cuddles!



Conclusion
So there you have it, hopefully we've convinced you to take an unforgettable cruise holiday in the South Pacific to make memories of beautiful beaches, exotic animals and mysterious historical sites that will last you a lifetime.
