Heritage Expeditions Creates Priced to Entice Gateway Expedition Cruise South Pacific Sojourn


Pioneering expedition cruise company Heritage Expeditions has added exciting new priced-to-entice introductory voyage South Pacific Sojourn to its 2023 expedition calendar.

The family-owned and operated cruise company's new 10-day voyage aboard its luxurious, 140-guest flagship Heritage Adventurer will explore Vanuatu and New Caledonia's remote tropical islands, cobalt blue waters, white sand beaches and ancient cultures before visiting the quiet paradise of Australia's Norfolk Island and New Zealand's aptly named subtropical Bay of Islands.

In addition to its introductory price point, guests travelling on either of Heritage Expeditions 2023 departures Discover the Secrets of Melanesia or New Zealand Coastal Odyssey voyage will save 50% off the price of South Pacific Sojourn when travelling back to back.

Commercial Director and Expedition Leader Aaron Russ said South Pacific Sojourn was the perfect gateway voyage for anyone who had been considering experiencing one of Heritage Expeditions authentic expedition cruises and an excellent opportunity for its repeat guests to explore new shores.

"This voyage has been specially designed for people who have been following the rise of authentic expedition cruising and our unique style of all-inclusive responsible travel," said Aaron. "Of course, it also has huge appeal for our repeat guests, cruise enthusiasts, adventurers and intrepid travellers."

"South Pacific Sojourn carefully blends exciting island adventures with luxurious sea days spent poolside, in the Observation Lounge or watching the voyage unfold in the Bridge alongside the Captain."

Highlights include exploring the lively markets of Port Vila and snorkelling through a kaleidoscope of colourful reefs in New Caledonia's Lifou Island, visiting Vanuatu's Mount Yasur, and discovering historic UNESCO heritage sites on Australia's Norfolk Island and New Zealand's early history at Waitangi and quirky Kiwi town Russell.
