|Isle of Pines|
Over the Christmas holidays we were lucky enough to holiday on board the Sun Princess owned by Princess Cruises which cruised around the South Pacific http://www.princess.com/learn/ships/sp/index.html http://www.princess.com/find/cruiseDetails.do?voyageCode=S304&tourCode&date&noOfPax=2&resType=C&definition_name I have to say that this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. They had Kids Club however my children chose to stay by the pool every day where they met loads of friends and had the time of their lives. I managed to read all three books of Fifty Shades of Grey and noted lots of others reading the same books.
The food was amazing we ate dinner in their dining room every night as well as breakfast and we could have chosen to have it at the buffet but it was such luxury to have your meal served every night for 10 nights, to choose from a menu, to have four courses all with an array of choices we never did the buffet.
I did not have roaming on my phone and checked my emails every couple of days at their internet cafe, there was just nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the ride. That is unless you could be bothered to do it all which by the way was impossible because the on board activities were huge.
We stopped at Noumea, Isle of Pines, Vila, Port Denarau and Suva with Isle of Pines being our favourite we had to be transported in smaller boats to the shore where we spent the day on the beach in the beautiful clear water the photo below was taken on the beach.
Anyway when you have a great tip you should share it and for me, if you truly want a break with fantastic food book a Princess Cruise.
Now to get back into the swing of things and save for another Cruise perhaps the one that sails around Australia.
