Nicknamed the “Valley Isle,” the island of Maui boasts a string of jungle valleys and is flanked on two sides by volcanoes, Puu Kukui to the west and the great Haleakala to the east. According to legend, the Hawaiian demigod Maui pulled up both ends of the island from the sea bottom with his fishhook to create this Pacific paradise. Resting between these two towering craters is central Maui, named after the island’s legendary creator. Cradled on its western shore at the foot of Puu Kukui is picturesque Lahaina, now designated a national historic landmark. In days gone by, it was one of the principal whaling centres of the Pacific. Now it brims with reminders of its legendary seafaring past. Beyond Lahaina lie tranquil valleys of serene majesty, the golden sands of Kaanapali Beach and Haleakala’s immense crater.

These days, the island’s sunny weather and natural beauty have taken the spotlight, bringing people to its shores for relaxation and outdoor pursuits. The island’s French-influenced capital, Nouméa, dubbed the Paris of the Pacific, has a distinctly French flair with fine restaurants and designer boutiques.

    Day 25: 14 February – Norfolk Island, Australia – 7:00am to 4:00pmImage result for crystal cruise norfolk island

    Rugged, green and small at only five by eight miles, Norfolk Island is a gem in the South Pacific, at least for today’s travellers. Arrivals in the late 18th and early 19th centuries were likely to be convicts, shipped off to these otherwise idyllic shores to serve time. Reminders of the island’s penal-colony history are some of its most popular attractions, including the seaside ruins of an early prison, the convict cemetery, and the town of Kingston, built largely by convicts. Many of the structures have been restored, some housing small museums. Kingston and its penal-colony past are of such interest that the city was inscribed on the World Heritage List as part of eleven Australian Convict Sites. Sure to capture your heart are some the island’s other renowned features. Norfolk National Park provides hiking and nice views from its mountain peaks, while sheltered beaches offer chances to soak in the sun and discover the wildlife with snorkeling and diving excursions.

    Sydney is an energetic and exciting metropolis whose nightlife, shopping and fine restaurants compare favorably with the finest the world has to offer. Despite its modern advances, Sydney has lovingly cherished its heritage, for this was the birthplace of the Australian nation.
