The World South Pacific Cruise

The WorldIn November and December, 2006, the 12-deck, 43,524 ton luxury cruise ship The World will sail across the South Pacific from New Zealand to Chile. Ports of call along the way include Noumea, Port Vila, Savusavu, Nuku'alofa, Niue, Palmerston, Aitutaki, Bora Bora, Taha'a, Moorea, Papeete, Pitcairn, Henderson, Easter Island, and Robinson Crusoe Island. Provided weather conditions are calm enough to permit zodiac landings, the Tahiti to Easter Island sector (December 2-11, 2006) will stops on Pitcairn and Henderson islands.

Travel aboard The World isn't cheap. The beginning fare from Tahiti to Easter Island (10 days) for the least expensive studio is US$14,500 double including food, drinks, tips, and port taxes. (That's the price for two people, not per person.) Airfares to the starting/finishing points and airport transfers are not included.

The World is unique in that all of 160 "residences" are individually owned. Our least expensive studio would cost about a million dollars to buy. Some owners cruise aboard The World yearround. The 2006 itinerary went right around the Pacific. In 2007, the focus will be on the Atlantic.
