Wednesday 25 March
Broome, Australia
In the 1870s, pearl fishermen discovered the rich waters of Roebuck Bay. A decade later, Broome was founded as a base for the pearl trade and was soon described as “the pearling capital of the world.” Japanese, Chinese and Aborigine divers toiled in arduous, dangerous labour to harvest oysters from the seabed. The legacy of its pearling days can be seen in the town’s colourful mix of 19th- and early 20th century buildings. Broome also boasts Cable Beach, a 13 mile strand of white sand that stretches along the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

Thursday 26 March
Kimberley Coast, Australia (scenic cruising)

Located in the northern part of Western Australia, Kimberley is one of the continent’s earliest settled regions, dating as far back as 40,000 years. But although its mainland has been inhabited for centuries, its over 8,000 miles of ruggedly beautiful coastline remain so unspoiled that the Kimberley Coast has been identified as one of the least impacted marine environments in the world. Approaching the Kimberley Coast from the Indian Ocean, you’ll make out dramatic red cliffs that stand out in stark contrast to the aquamarine waters of the fringing reefs below. More than 2,600 islands are scattered beyond the reefs, serving as nesting grounds to a variety of seabirds, including cormorants, giant Australian pelicans and Red-footed Boobies. The islands also provide breathtaking scenery in one of the world’s most extensive coastal wilderness areas - and the best way to take it all in is from the sea!
On board meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner

Saturday 28 March
Darwin, Australia

Closer to Indonesia than to any other Australian city, Darwin is the capital of the “Top End” - the remote, vast Northern Territory. Home to more than half of the territory’s population, the city reflects the rugged endurance and individualism required to survive the Outback. Darwin also boasts a colourful history to add to that heritage. During World War II the Japanese bombed the city and threatened invasion. In 1974, Cyclone Tracy cut a destructive swath through the region. In addition, man-eating crocodiles, tropical monsoons, searing heat and bush fires that burn for weeks are all part of everyday life.

Cairns, Australia

Cairns is one of Australia’s hottest vacation destinations. Cairns boasts three of Australia’s great natural wonders. Just offshore, immense bastions of living coral form the Great Barrier Reef. Sixteen miles of superb beaches stretch to the north of the city - the famed Marlin Coast. And inland lays the immense Daintree National Park. Cairns itself basks in tropical sunshine, balmy breezes waft in from Trinity Bay. The city’s graceful, tree-lined esplanade was once the gateway to the gold fields of North Queensland.
On board meals: breakfast, lunch & dinner

Alotau, 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.
