Top cruising destination: New Caledonia

By Adene Cassidy | Feb 14, 2018 |
Pacific charm, French flavour.

Baguettes and beaches may seem like a strange combination, but this is part of daily life in New Caledonia. With its exotic French flair and aquatic wonderland, it’s no surprise that New Caledonia is our top destination for layby cruises. 

There are 4 ports of call to visit when you cruise around New Caledonia; Isle of Pines, Lifou, Mare and Noumea. Set sail around the stunning azure landscape and get a taste of the beautiful French cuisine on offer. 

The casual-chic capital of Noumea blends Melanesian traditional, Asian-Pacific influences and French style in a stunning hillside setting. The Isle of pines, Lifou and Mare are famous for their crystal-clear lagoons and white sandy beaches. 

Think snorkelling, island hopping, diving, endless water sports, tropical fruits, flavours, cocktails and happy hour. But most importantly, experience the charm and culture of New Caledonia and immerse yourself in this strikingly colourful country. 

Ranging from 7 -12 nights on board, both our P&O and Royal Caribbean South Pacific cruises explore the stunning islands of New Caledonia, and we understand why! 

Layby a cruise from just $13.80 per week and you could experience a taste of New Caledonia
