New Caledonia

Pacific charm, French flavour

Pacific charm is infused with a delightful French flavour.

Baguettes and beaches seems like a strange mix, doesn’t it? Not in New Caledonia. With bright blue waters and beautiful landscapes, New Caledonia is called the jewel of the Pacific for a reason. But it’s much more than an astonishingly beautiful aquatic wonderland. It’s a truly diverse destination just waiting to be explored. There are four ports of call when you visit New Caledonia with P&O and we’ll take you on an island hopping adventure. From caves and corals to French cafes, there’s a whole new world to discover above the surface and a universe to explore when you dive under the azure water.

Find your perfect cruise

When you embark on a holiday with P&O Cruises you enter another world. A world inspired by the freedom of the open sea. A world where ‘normal’ is what you make it. It is a world you enter the moment the ship leaves Earth and launches off on your adventure. A world where you are free to have your holiday any way that you choose. Start dinner with dessert. Wake up at the crack of midday. Discover strange new worlds.
