34 Night Cruise sailing from Los Angeles to Auckland aboard Seabourn Sojourn.
The second of Seabourn’s new class of ships, Seabourn Sojourn, debuted on June 6, 2010 in the middle of the River Thames in London. Seabourn Sojourn’s godmother was the English fashion icon and actress Twiggy.
Like her sisters, Seabourn Sojourn enchants her guests with an array of public areas scaled to encourage a relaxed sociability. One of the most unusual features of Seabourn Sojourn and her sisters is Seabourn Square, an ingenious “living room” that replaces the traditional cruise ship lobby with a welcoming lounge filled with easy chairs, sofas and cocktail tables. An enclave in its center houses knowledgeable concierges discreetly seated at individual desks, ready to handle all sorts of business or give advice and information.
Highlights of this cruise:
Los Angeles, often abbreviated to simply 'LA' is known for its golden beaches, superb surfing and numerous Los Angeles movie stars. Some of the most famous areas of Los Angeles include Hollywood, which is full of movie-related tourist attractions, and LA's Beach district, where you will find Malibu Beach amongst others.
Cruise along Los Angeles' Sunset Strip and Walk of Fame, take a walk along Rodeo Drive, drive past the enormous mansions in Beverly Hills, or explore the more cultural areas of LA, and you will realize why Los Angeles, the 'City of Angels', has become one of America's premier tourist destinations.
Los Angeles has many tourist attractions, including Dodger Stadium, the Walt Disney Concert Hall - CBS Television City - home to major Los Angeles television productions, LA's Hollywood Forever Cemetery - where a number of world-famous Hollywood celebrities have been laid to rest; Los Angeles Zoo, Paramount Pictures - Hollywood's longest running film studios, and LA's famous Hollywood Sign - symbolizing the hopes and dreams of many Hollywood actors.
Other main tourist attractions in Los Angeles include First Interstate World Center - the tallest structure in the area, LA's Watts Towers - one of the most unique and creative landmarks in Los Angles; the Griffith Observatory - an impressive Art Deco observatory built in the 1930s; the Wells Fargo Center, LA's Union Station - featured in many Hollywood films in the 1940s; Crystal Cathedral a striking glass tower, and Elysian Park one of the largest parks in Los Angeles, with many scenic walking trails
For nearly 70 years, Lanai dubbed the "Pineapple Island," was operated as a pineapple plantation by Dole Company, a subsidiary of Dole Food Company, Inc. In its heyday, Lanai was the world's largest source of pineapple, grown on more than 16,000 acres, until the industry began faltering. Controlling interest of Dole Food Company, Inc., and its 98 percent holdings on the island was purchased in 1985 by David Murdock, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. By 1993, pineapple was phased out in favor of more diversified economic prospects, including other agricultural crops, ranching, and resort development
Bora Bora is the largest island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia in the southern Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 kilometres northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu. The main settlement on the island is Vaitape.
The main attraction on the island is its lagoon, which is excellent for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. There are a variety of other nautical activities, as well as horse riding, biking and jeep tours of the island.
Tahiti is the largest of the Polynesian islands with its population most concentrated in Papeete which is a major shipping crossroad located on Tahiti's northwest corner.
Shopping-lovers will enjoy Papeete's chic shops, busy municipal market, waterfront area and lively mix of French, Polynesian, and Chinese cultures. Its suburbs sprawl up the mountains overlooking the city for miles along the coast in both directions.
The interior of the island offers splendid and unforgettable opportunities for hiking or safari 4x4 excursions, with impressive waterfalls, archeological sites, grottos and more.
Rarotonga was one of the last of the Cook Islands to be visited by European ships, but since its "discovery," it was always a favorite of sailors and merchants. Today, Rarotonga is the most populous island of the Cook Islands, and the location of the country's capital, Avarua. Isolated for years from major tourist routes, travelers began to arrive in Rarotonga following the opening of the international airport in 1974, many lured by the untouched beauty of pristine white sand beaches edged with swaying palms and crystal-clear lagoons.
The idyllic Bay of Islands is a popular vacation area for New Zealanders. Unassuming Russell holds a premier position in the nation’s history. It was at nearby Waitangi that the Maori chieftains signed a treaty in 1840 ceding their lands to the British Crown. The Waitangi Treaty Grounds remains an important national landmark. Strolling Russell’s tidy streets today, it is difficult to imagine that in the 19th century, this was called the “hellhole of the Pacific” -- a nearly lawless outpost for whalers, sailors and ambitious traders flooding the new imperial frontier. Popular excursions from Russell include surveys of the surviving forests of ancient kauri trees, many well over a thousand years old, and the phantasmagorical formations of volcanic basalt rock; kayaking the crucial mangrove forests of the estuaries; and visiting a traditional Maori marae, or meetinghouse, to learn about the indigenous people’s heritage. Other recreational alternatives include the spectacular 18-hole Kauri Cliffs golf course, rated as the best in the world by Golf Digest.
Auckland is one of the few cities in the world to have harbors on two separate bodies of water. The central part of urban Auckland covers a narrow isthmus between the Manukau Harbor on the Tasman Sea, and the Waitemata Harbor on the Pacific Ocean. In addition, Auckland's diverse geography and warm, humid climate has inspired a lifestyle regularly ranked in the world's top ten. A half hour drive from the city there is an abundance of activities: sailing to a secluded island, trekking through the rainforest, picnicking on a volcano, sampling wines at a vineyard or exploring a black sand beach.
