Enjoy the ultimate tennis experience in Melbourne, followed by a unique cruise to the exotic islands of the Pacific Ocean
Your holiday begins with a four night stay in Melbourne where you’ll experience all the excitement of the Australian Open, one of the world’s most thrilling sports tournaments. Watch tennis history being made at 2019’s first Glam Slam of the year, as the energetic crowds roar with excitement and the world’s best players do battle across the court. With your tickets to the Men’s and Women’s Finals, you’ll witness the best tennis stars in the world compete for glory in a game like no other, aptly named the ‘Fans Slam’ due to the atmosphere on the grounds - an experience every tennis fan would simply love to tick off their bucket list.
Aside from the tennis, four nights gives you plenty of time to explore the city. Melbourne is famous for its markets, where you’ll find everything from local produce to arts and crafts and vintage fashion. Or if you want to escape the buzz of the city, you could travel to nearby Yarra Valley, where you could taste world-class wines and walk through lush forests.
Following your Melbourne stay it’s time to wind down and relax on board the stylish Golden Princess during your 14 night Pacific Island cruise. These gorgeous archipelagos boast picture perfect scenery, serene beaches and friendly locals who welcome you to their own little slice of paradise on earth. You’ll cruise first to New Caledonia’s cosmopolitan capital, Noumea, a little bit of France in the Pacific Ocean. Make a trip to the Port Moselle Market and enjoy a croque-madame amongst stalls selling colourful piles of exotic fruit.
Sailing to Fiji, you’ll visit Port Denarau and Suva, where you can learn about the island culture through fire walking, Kava ceremonies and tribal drumming renditions; before a day at sea delivers you to the deserted beaches and ancient cultures in far-flung Vanuatu. You’ll return to New Caledonia and visit Mare, a rugged island with an abundance of natural attractions including some of the best diving you’ll find in the South Pacific, before returning to Melbourne where you’ll disembark for your flight home.
