Selected Itinerary

11 Day Itinerary

  1. Day 1 - Lautoka, Viti Levu, Fiji

    Settle into your suite, in the sweet city of Lautoka, nestled in the heart of Fiji's sugar cane growing region. Step ashore where the first Fijians landed to understand why they chose to make this island paradise their home. In a land of dramatic displays such as warrior dances and firewalks, the attractions are much gentler: botanical gardens thriving with orchids; blissful beaches; lush forest; and warmly welcoming locals. Your journey into wonder begins with a warm greeting by the crew as you step on board Scenic Eclipse. 

    Please book your flight to arrive into Nadi prior to 02:00 PM.

    Meals Included: Dinner

  2. Day 2 - At sea

    Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax and indulge in the luxuries onboard Scenic Eclipse.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  3. Day 3 - Tanna Island, Vanuatu

    Tanna’s erupting Mount Yasur is regarded as the world’s most accessible active volcano. Known for its continuous activity since Captain James Cook observed ash eruptions in 1774, it’s considered a sacred area by members of the John Frum cargo cult, who believe their deity resides inside.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  4. Day 4 - Lifou Island, New Caledonia

    A coral atoll atop a collapsed volcano, Lifou is the largest and highest of the Loyalty Islands. In the north, the coastline ends abruptly in cliffs, while the south is a long expanse of beaches. Further inland, the rich Kanak culture is proudly upheld by the local community.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  5. Day 5 - L’Île-des-Pins

    The “Jewel of the Pacific” is named after the tall trees that line the white-sand shores. It’s the southernmost of the Caledonian islands and the largest in the marine area of the Great Southern Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Isle of Pines is also a former penal colony, where political prisoners from the Paris Commune and Kabylians from Algeria were deported at the end of the 19th century.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  6. Day 6 - At sea

    During your day at sea, make the most of the onboard services and activities, such as the Senses Spa, fitness centre and all-inclusive bars and restaurants.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  7. Day 7 - Norfolk Island, Australia

    This South Pacific island lies off Australia's east coast, blessed with deserted beaches, Emily Bay lagoon, Mount Pitt and parrot-filled Norfolk Island National Park. But there’s also a turbulent history to uncover at the Norfolk Island Museum in Kingston.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  8. Day 8 - At sea

    Another day to enjoy the open sea, spot the marine life and unwind onboard.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  9. Day 9 - Bay of Islands, New Zealand

    Russell, the first harbour city founded in New Zealand by Europeans, is your entry into the Bay of Islands on the east coast of the North Island. Admire gorgeous gardens, whitewashed houses, beautiful beaches, and Christ Church, the oldest church in the country.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  10. Day 10 - Great Barrier Island

    Largely forest-covered, New Zealand’s Great Barrier Island is an official Dark Sky Sanctuary, recognised for its exceptional stargazing. Explore ashore or join a Zodiac cruise before we sail into the Hauraki Gulf, keeping an eye out for the critically endangered New Zealand Storm-petrel. Other birds to spot include Buller’s Shearwaters, Australian Gannets, Little Blue Penguins, White-faced Storm-petrel, Grey-faced Petrel, Little Shearwater and Black Petrel. Cruising along the east coast of the North Island, we will certainly see albatrosses including the Campbell, Shy and Wandering.

    Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

  11. Day 11 - Auckland

    This lovely city has two harbours offering waterfront walks and views of Auckland’s harbour bridge, but the best cityscape vista is from 192 metres high at the Sky Tower. Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, a French-Renaissance building houses New Zealand’s most extensive art collection, including works by Maori and Pacific artists. Disembark after breakfast as you farewell the crew and take away memories of a truly unforgettable cruise.

    Please book your flight to depart out of Auckland after 12:00 PM.
