Looking at 12 nighter South Pacific which has only four sea days (two at the beginning and two at the end). (Noumea, Lifou, Vila, Champagne Bay, Luganville, Mystery Island, Isle of Pines)
We hear so much about Fiji here in the States and would love to see it. But is it worth addinig an additional two more sea days, thats six sea days. We think that is ALOT of sea days (for us) but clearly if Fiji IS worth seeing. Is it all that different from the other South Pacific islands we will be seeing? I have no knowledge of anything in the South Pacific. I just know we want to go. I do not know about the weather, if we go swimming in these places, I know nothing, so help me out. Please.
Fiji cruise would include Suva and Lautoka, Noumea, Lifou, Vila and thats it; we'd lose Champagne Bay, Luganville, Mystery Island, Isle of Pines.
Since we are flying all the way from Miami, I want to make sure we make the right choice. RCI is suppose to open their Australia deployment schedule today for late 2014/2015; although early 2014 isn't totally off the table. I'm already cruise heavy early 2014.
Thanks for any advice.
The world is not going to come to you. The sooner you realize this, the more time you'll have to pack. Get out there!
