Vancouver – Canada (Part 2)

Two more things to do in Vancouver, is to go to Granville Island and Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. It’s very easy to take a bus to Granville Island, which is surrounded by smaller wharfs/terminals for boats, as well as the ferry taxis that stop there (so taking a ferry is another option). Shops, boutique shops …

Vancouver – Canada (Part 1)

Right in the heart of Vancouver, your cruise ship will dock at Canada Place. From there, it is easy to fill your day with all the must-see destinations Vancouver has to offer! In today’s post I will mention 2 top places to visit, and next week I will have 2 more for you 🙂 One …

Nawiliwili (Kauai) – Hawaii

Nawiliwili is a small town on the island of Kauai. The beach is an easy walk from the ship, though there are many free shuttles to go there, as well as different parts of town. At the beach area you will find many water sport facilities – surfboards for rent, stand-up paddling for rent, surfing …

Lahaina (Maui) – Hawaii

The ship throws anchor in Lahaina Bay and passengers are taken ashore via tender boats. When you get to the harbour there are many little local shops to visit for souvenirs or other things as well as a whole buffet of restaurants to choose from. Within a short walk there is also a beautiful beach …

Honolulu – Hawaii

I.Love.Honolulu! This place is probably what all the hype around Hawaii is all about. Here everyone will be able to find the thing they consider making it the perfect holiday destination: beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, amazing waves (for beginners and advanced), shopping, restaurants, hiking, volcanoes, scenic drives, very vibe-y nightlife and much, much more! …

Hilo – Hawaii

For our day in Hilo, we decided to hire bikes…more ground covered in less time ;)! It was a fantastic way to explore the town of Hilo as it is very biker-friendly and so much better than spending time in a taxi. We set out along the coast, taking the main road, but every now …

Savusavu – Fiji

Savusavu is such a lovely underdeveloped area in Fiji. Where villages work together, people depend on the river for water, coconuts (with all its goodness) are used on a daily basis, cattle are free-roaming and the people are unbelievably friendly. For our day out, we went to the Vuadomo Waterfall. This beautiful waterfall is about …

Suva – Fiji

Suva is the capital of Fiji. This, of course, means that there are a great variety of things to do in Suva. We did only one thing, but it was utterly and totally fantastic!! We went to the Suva waterfalls. There are a series of 7 or 8 waterfalls and you can start at the …

Noumea – New Caledonia

Noumea is the capital of New Caledonia, and as of 2007, has been the fastest growing city in the Pacific. Noumea also has more sunshine days than any other Pacific Island capital and that, combined with excellent beaches, equals FUN! Once you get off the ship there is a fantastic Info Centre from which you …

Lifou – Loyalty Islands

You know those pictures you always see in magazines or in holiday ads, with the perfectly white beaches, crystal clear water, palm trees and sun sun sun!? That is exactly what you find when the ship stops at Lifou. I want to say it is paradise, but it depends on what your definition of ‘paradise’ …
