Follow in the footsteps of ancient Samoan traders, pioneering European explorers and 19th century French missionaries.  Sample kava drink, visit a traditional thatched fale house and marvel at imposing Catholic Cathedrals.  

Celebrate Christmas and New Year at sea before continuing onwards to Niue, one of the world's largest coral atolls.  Cross the International Date Line and reset your watch by 23 hours before disembarking in Auckland.
