Highlights of the 50-Day South Pacific Voyage
#1. Moorea, French Polynesia – The coastline of Moorea is one of the most magnificent places on the planet. An optional excursion that caught my attention is an opportunity to join marine biologist Michael Poole or his assistant on a dolphin tour. Dr. Poole has been studying dolphins in French Polynesea since 1987 and on 95% of the tours they see dolphins in the wild.
But, even on the 5% of the tours that do not see dolphins, no one is complaining about the view:
#2. Suva, Fiji – Suva is the Capital and second most populated municipality of Fij. It is the most Cosmopolitan city in the South Pacific.
The contrasting beauty of the the rare island city tucked up against the South Pacific will make this one of your favorite visits on your 50-day voyage.
Here is the view just minutes away from the capital city:
#3. Lahaina, Hawaii – A variety of restaurants, bars, and shopping lining historic Front Street, the Lahaina Fort, and a magnificent banyan tree at the city center gives Lahaina, Hawaii its one-of-kind personality.
While in Lahaina, you can enjoy the fishing town on your own or go 65 ft underneath the ocean and see first hand the sea life below onboard an air-conditioned submarine. [Submarine tour is an optional excursion offered by Holland America.
If you’d rather watch the sea life from above the water, there is also an optional Maui Whale watching excursion offered by Holland America.
#4. Bora Bora, French Polynesia – Your 50-Day Voyage on Holland America will overnight on the picturesque tropical paradise.
Holland America offers at least 10 shore excursions that give you the opportunity to explore the lagoons, forests, beaches and marine life that make Bora Bora so special.
Honestly, I could list all 25 ports of call on the 50-Day itinerary – each island offers a mix of pristine beaches, lush forests, and undisturbed wildlife. View Full Itinerary.
#5. No International Flights Needed! It was mentioned above, but wanted to make sure it was listed as a highlight. For the 2015 50-Day Tales of the South Pacific, ms Amsterdam will sail from Seattle to San Diego.
