Enjoy a 90-minute cruise where you can relax and admire the forested shores of the Gulf Islands and explore the Strait of Georgia, a pristine marine wonderland. Keep your camera handy and your eyes peeled for a glimpse of bald eagles soaring far overhead, or of mighty whales such as orcas, humpbacks and minkes travelling through the glassy waters. 

Drop anchor at Vancouver Island to visit the captivating Butchart Gardens.

This National Historic site of Canada features fifty-five acres of stunning floral show gardens, which will take your breath away. The gardens are particularly known for the colours that shift throughout the year, from autumn’s umber tones of aspens and maples to the riotous shades of spring. Stroll around the hundred-year-old estate and admire the Tsartlip and Tsawout First Nations totem poles, the quiet tinkling streams in the Japanese garden and the scent of roses, honeysuckle and jasmine.

After you have had ample time to soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Butchart Gardens, head to the beautiful Inner Harbour area in the city of Victoria, to discover the grand legislative buildings, colourful Chinatown, informative museums and the unique shops that Victoria has on offer before returning to Vancouver.

Day 21 Lautoka, Fiji

Perched on the west coast, Lautoka, is not only the second largest city among Fiji's 332 islands, it is also the second gateway, after the capital city Suva, to Fiji's experience of tropical paradise.
With warm temperatures throughout the year, there is never a bad time to journey to Lautoka on the island of Viti Levu. ‘Spear hit’ is the literal translation of the name Lautoka from the native Fijian language, which gives an insight into the history and culture of this town. During a duel between two chiefs, one was hit in the chest by a spear and supposedly cried out “Lau-toka” as he died. Tribal traditions are still important in Fijian culture, with life centred around the local villages.

The lagoon that surrounds the island like a turquoise-encrusted ring is the perfect place for snorkelling, paddle boarding or simply idling in the warm waters, watching marine life dart in colourful schools beneath the surface.

Venturing a little further from the port, you’ll find plenty to see on the island of Viti Levu. Lautoka itself has a wide main street lined with lush green trees and dotted with cafes and restaurants, and it is from here that you can embark on optional adventures great and small.

Overnight: Cunard's 'Queen Elizabeth'

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 22 Suva, Fiji

It may be Fiji’s capital with about 90,000 inhabitants, but Suva’s laid-back atmosphere, spectacular scenery and village-style hospitality is something of an antidote to the typical perception of city life.
What’s more, it may be on Fiji’s famed coast, but it’s not a beach resort. Suva is lined by mangroves, giving it a lush backdrop. The closest beach is 25 miles away, but there’s plenty to enjoy here.

Wandering around Suva’s streets reveals an intriguing blend of colonial and modern architecture, painting a picture of the city’s history. Government House was once the home of Fiji’s colonial governors, but it is now the Presidential palace.

There are plenty of shopping options in vibrant Suva where you can find gifts and souvenirs to remind you of your trip. Cumming Street and Victoria Parade are known for their modern shops and malls, where duty-free bargains can often be discovered. For a shopping trip with a little more local flavour, try one of Suva’s lively markets, such as the Suva Municipal Market. Overflowing with fresh produce, clothing and handicrafts, residents and tourists alike can be found scouring the colourful marketplace for treasures.

Overnight: Cunard's 'Queen Elizabeth'

Day 24 Lifou, New Caledonia

The largest and most populated of the Loyalty Islands, Lifou is the definition of paradise – the kind of place you dream of discovering on a South Pacific cruise.

Encircled by shallow transparent waters, Lifou’s landscape is intoxicating; a blend of powder-white sands and lime green jungle, so perfect it’s possible you’ll want to pinch yourself.

Admire the panoramic views from Notre Dames de Lourdes. Be captivated by the bustle of Wharfside markets. Swim with colourful fish at Jinek Bay Marine Reserve and visit a vanilla plantation to see where this sweet elixir hails from.

Overnight: Cunard's 'Queen Elizabeth'

Meals included: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 25 Noumea, New Caledonia

A vision of intense azure sea and gleaming green trees, Noumea is every bit the topical oasis you’d expect. Exotic parklands, filled with colourful fauna and wild birds, the softest sand peppering picture-perfect beaches, and elevated viewpoints from which to admire the sweeping panoramas. Add to this a dose of European architecture, upmarket shopping, a restaurant-lined promenade, and a smattering of museums, and it’s easy to see why New Caledonia’s capital often draws comparisons with the chic resorts of Southern France.

Overnight: Cunard's 'Queen Elizabeth'

Melbourne is a vibrant and environmentally-conscious urban hub, brimming with a rich tapestry of cultural establishments and a delightful array of cafes, bars, and dining hotspots offering a diverse range of global flavours.

Nestled within this bustling cityscape is the tranquil haven of Port Melbourne, basking in abundant sunshine just a stone's throw from Melbourne's bustling heart. Here, you'll find palm-fringed promenades offering panoramic vistas of the beach, complemented by chic cafes, patisseries and restaurants. Or join the locals onboard a tram and head to the city centre for some retail therapy, discovery of world-class art galleries, museums and so much more.

Other important information

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on the history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction where they are guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village and offer information on the place visited on the bus. However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
