Together with around 150 family history enthusiasts I will be setting sail on a Pacific cruise next Sunday when the Unlock the Past cruise leaves Sydney on board the Voyager of the Seas. We will be calling at Noumea and Fiji.
For today's post I turned to Trove to see what I could find out about cruising in the Pacific.

I wonder how our experiences will mirror those of these journeys in the past.
