Noumea, New Caledonia - Christchurch, New Zealand

December 19-29, 2015

  • We invite you to begin your cruise to New Zealand in the Caledonian city of Noumea. Le SOLEAL will travel south and cross the Tasman Sea, before reaching  Aotearoa, the “Land of the Long White Cloud ”.
  • Aotearoa, raises from the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean, offering travellers an insular realm, a garden of Eden with an infinity of landscapes.
  • Whereas the North Island is volcanic and home to tropical rainforests, romantic lakes, and hot springs with sulphurous geysers, the South Island boasts alpine peaks interlaced with fjords, snow-capped mountains and majestic glaciers that stretch out to meet vast green pastures.
