‘Micronesia and So Much More’ fly, stay and cruise package

A luxury, all-inclusive cruise exploring remote, rarely-offered destinations in Micronesia in 2024 is available through Cruise Traveller, which is offering savings of $4,960 per couple and $11,590 for solo travellers for earlybird bookings made by 30 April 2023.

Ideal for seasoned travellers who have often cruised to the popular ports of the South Pacific or for intrepid adventurers seeking new places to explore, the ‘Micronesia and So Much More’ fly, stay and cruise package features an exotic, 16-night expedition voyage from New Caledonia to Guam in March next year aboard Ponant’s 264-guest exploration ship, Le Soleal.  Boasting a refined and intimate, French-styled elegance, Le Soleal offers a fine dining restaurant and grill restaurant, panoramic lounge, theatre, library, open-air bar, pool, an expert expedition team and personalised service.

The adventure begins on 7 March 2024, with an included flight from Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane to Noumea in New Caledonia for a night’s stay. Next day, guests will board Le Soleal bound for 11 tropical destinations in Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, The Solomon Islands and Micronesia.

The unique itinerary through Micronesia features pristine idyllic islands, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, stunning coral atolls, spectacular volcanoes, gushing waterfalls, rugged mountains, tropical jungle, isolated, culturally intact villages and fascinating World War 2 relics. The adventure embraces many places few Australians have visited or heard of including Santa Ana Island in the Solomons, the beautiful Lamotrek Atoll in the Caroline Islands and the pristine, far-flung atolls of Ifalik and Gaferut in Micronesia where the sight of Westerners is rare.

The clean and pristine coral atolls of Micronesia offer incredibly rich underwater scenery perfect for certified divers who will have the opportunity on the trip to experience the abundant coral and sea life. Opportunities will also be available to enjoy snorkelling, swimming and hiking.

Throughout the cruise, friendly, local islanders will greet guests, show their craftmanship, share village life and perform colourful traditional ceremonies and cultural dances, providing guests with warm, lifetime memories.

Guided excursions on Zodiacs are included and there’s also the indulgence of a complimentary, open bar every day onboard Le Soleal.  At the end of voyage in Guam, guests will fly to Seoul for a night’s stay before the flight back to Australia.

Including the 16-night all-inclusive cruise, two nights’ accommodation and return flights from Australia, the 18-night ‘Micronesia and So Much More’ package in March 2024, is available from A$17,995 per person, twin-share, or A$25,550 for solo travellers (subject to availability) in a Deluxe Balcony stateroom – a saving of A$2,480 per person in a two-person stateroom and A$11,590 for solo travellers.
