Itinerary

Sun, Dec 8: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Once considered the 'country cousin' among Australian cities, Brisbane is today the nation's third-largest metropolis - and one of the most desirable places to live in the country. Lying on the banks of the meandering Brisbane River, this cosmopolitan city boasts elegant 19th-century sandstone buildings, a lively cultural scene and superb parklands. Brisbane is also your gateway to uniquely Australian adventures, be it the theme parks of the Gold Coast or Queensland's dazzling beaches.

The beaches south of Brisbane form Queensland's Gold Coast.
Travel tip: Brisbane is pronounced "Bris-bin."

Mon, Dec 9: at sea

Each day, a world of exciting activities awaits, from cooking demonstrations to dance classes, trivia contests and a range of enrichment programs, including our Encounters with Discovery at SEA speaker series from experts who offer insights into the places you’ll visit.

Wed, Dec 11: Alotau (Milne Bay), Papua New Guinea

Welcome to an undiscovered paradise of white-sand beaches, crystal waterfalls and volcanic mountains. And if you've come for history, you'll find that, too. This peaceful town was the site of fierce fighting during World War II. Today, it's a peaceful retreat offering the vacationer plenty of time to relax and connect with nature. Beyond the city you'll find a tropical rainforest full of birds of paradise and a laid-back ease worth discovering.

Thu, Dec 12: Kitava, Papua New Guinea

Fri, Dec 13: Rabaul, Papua New Guinea

The former capital of New Britain has a history of destruction and resurrection - the city rebuilt after a massive 1937 volcanic eruption only to be destroyed by Allied bombing in World War II. In 1994, the eruption of Mt. Tavurvur dropped hot ash and rock on Rabaul, leading to its partial abandonment. Since that cataclysm, the city has slowly returned to life - hotels have resumed operating, the market continues to trade, and the harbor remains one of the most impressive in the entire Pacific basin.

During World War II, Rabaul served as a forward operating base for the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. Allied bombing forced the Japanese defenders underground, into a complex system of bunkers and tunnels on the Gazelle Peninsula.

Sat, Dec 14: Kiriwina Island, Papua New Guinea

Sun, Dec 15: Conflict Islands, Papua New Guinea

The word conflict may conjure up images of struggle and discontent, but this group of 21 islands encircling an enormous lagoon on the rim of a sunken volcano is an undiscovered Shangri-La. Named after their discovery in 1886 by HMS naval survey ship The Conflict, the islands were purchased by Australian businessman Ian Gowrie-Smith in 2003 whose goal is to preserve and protect this pristine ecosystem. Sheltered by an untouched reef system, the island is abundant with marine life and perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. Whether you prefer activities fast and furious or slow and steady, you're sure to find paradise. What more could you wish for in an island destination?

Mon, Dec 16: Kawanasausau Strait (Scenic Cruising), Papua New Guinea

Tue, Dec 17: at sea

There’s always something happening on board — from heading to the Princess Theater for a lavish original musical production to enjoying a blockbuster movie poolside under the stars or simply relaxing in a lounge sipping a cocktail where a live band is playing your song.

Wed, Dec 18: at sea

Everything you need to refresh body and mind is right on board. Indulge in a manicure, pedicure or a makeover in the salon, or a soothing massage in the Lotus Spa. Or maybe it’s a brisk workout in the fitness centre, followed by a little 'me time' in The Sanctuary, a tranquil retreat reserved just for adults.

Thu, Dec 19: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
