Santo
Located on Espirito Santo, the largest island in the Vanuatu archipelago, Santo is a major export centre. The quayside bustles with activity; on a typical day you’ll see locals unloading sacks of copra that fill the whole quayside with a distinctive ‘coconut’ aroma. The town is located less than one kilometre from the ship overlooking the attractive Segond Channel. Walking into town you pass handicraft stalls and remnants of buildings surviving from when the American’s were stationed there in WWII. Santo is becoming a popular destination because of its beautiful undiscovered beaches (many only a short drive from the ship), superb scuba dive sites, fascinating traditional villages and WWII American wartime relics such as the President Coolidge. Traditional village life, firewalking ceremonies, water music and dance are among Santo's cultural curiosities to be discovered!

Vila
The substantial dock and port area of Port Vila overlooks a natural harbour. There are beautiful coastal views of the city with its clusters of houses and small scale resorts nestled amongst tropical vegetation makes an attractive scene. The harbour is quite active with fishing boats, yachts and speedboats passing between the various nearby islands. The dock bustles with dancers and music and there are lots of friendly locals selling handicrafts. The covered market place is a colourful and interesting place to visit selling handicrafts, fruits and colourful tropical flowers. Port Vila is clearly visible from deck and is around 1.5 kilometres from the port. The capital is really just one long street with a few smaller streets intersecting it. The main street Lini Highway has lots of shops some bars and restaurants. Many of the resort hotels with excellent restaurants and bars are easily accessible.

Mystery Island
Tiny Mystery Island is picture perfect, with sandy pathways that lead to white beaches edged with coconut trees and crystal clear lagoons offering great snorkelling. This small, uninhabited island is one of the most southern of the Vanuatu group. Mystery Island was used as a World War II landing strip for the allied forces. There is now absolutely no tourism development except for the occasional visit by our ship. There are no roads, no shops and no stress! The locals from a nearby island will come to sell their few shells and goods and your day may be spent relaxing on the sand while the local band plays songs of welcome. The surrounding reefs offer ideal opportunities for experienced snorkellers.

Noumea, New Caledonia
The port of Noumea is from where New Caledonia exports most of its nickel ore. It is one of the largest ports P&O Cruises visit in the South Pacific. The city of Noumea is a short distance away from the port. Le Petit Train is one of the most popular ways of getting into Noumea and exploring the city.The city is spread out over a long distance. The famous Tjbaou Cultural centre, one of the jewels of the South Pacific is an architectural masterpiece and is 20 minutes outside the centre. Many of the other sights are quite a distance apart and tours by motor trike, fun car, bike or helicopter offer the best way to see the city. Some great tours are on offer outside of the city, 4WD in the bush, hiking Mount Koghis, Kayaking the Dumbea River.
