Transpacific Cruises

If you really want to see the world, you must take a transpacific cruise. The Pacific Ocean, the world’s largest ocean, covers 33% of the Earth’s surface. This ocean borders four continents and several countries, but what you may find even more amazing are the diverse cultures and people that live along the islands of the Pacific. There are even theories that some of the people from these secluded cultures sailed to the Americas in outrigger canoes thousands of years before Columbus happened upon the Caribbean.  You can discover this incredible past and uncover the theories as you sail this peaceful ocean to discover new adventures. 

 

Things to Do on a Transpacific Cruise

 

The ports that touch the Pacific Ocean offer a wonderful array of activities that let you understand the cultural traditions of Fijians, explore the architecture of Japan and Singapore in the 1800s and try some tasty macadamia treats in Hawaii. Featured below are some of the best ways to spend your time cruising across the Pacific Ocean:

 


Transpacific Cruises Hong Kong Island from Kowloon
  • Drive through macadamia nut orchards and see how Mauna Loa processes the nut and packages it at their Visitor Center in Hilo, Hawaii. Don’t forget to try some samples while there.
     
  • Enjoy Hong Kong at night as you stroll from vendor to vendor at the Temple Street Night Market. Here you’ll also see fortune tellers, opera troupes and old men betting on games of Chinese chess.
     
Transpacific Cruises Buddha Toothe Relic Temple in Chinatown, Singapore
  • Uncover Singapore’s history at the Chinatown Heritage Centre. This shows you what a typical bedroom or kitchen from the 19th and 20th centuries looked like. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the struggles of Singapore’s early residents.
     
  • Spend a day at Beqa Island in Fiji, where you can snorkel through beautiful underwater landscapes of coral as seahorses and ribbon eels glide by. At night you can watch a fire walking ceremony, a tradition among the Sawau tribe.
     
Transpacific Cruises Moai at Rano Raraku quarry on Easter Island
  • See the amazing moai statues on Easter Island. The moai are the incredible stone figures that are spread out all over the island. It is still unclear who built these statues and what they mean. Each of the statues is unique and all are imposing, with the largest ones standing 32 feet tall.
     
  • Step into 1800s Japan at Glover Garden in Nagasaki. This garden contains a wide array of houses and other structures from the 19th century, including Glover’s 1863 mansion. Glover was a Scottish merchant who introduced coal mining to Japan.
