2:00am 8:00am Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile
Originally named Juan Fernandez Island after the Portuguese sailor who discovered it in 1575, the island remained largely unknown until 1708 when Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk was rescued after being marooned for over four years. This experience then became the inspiration for Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. Due to the literary association the Chilean Government decided to rename the Island in 1966 to Robinson Crusoe Island. Today this volcanic island of mountainous landscape is a fascinating place of wild and unspoilt beauty. Declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1977, the island is home to some unique species including the Juan Fernandez Firecrown Hummingbird, the Fur Seal and the Magellanic Penguin.

  8:00am Hanga Roa, Easter Island, Chile
We craft monuments to our deities from materials close at hand. On Easter Island the monuments were moai, giant sculptures of ancestors, and the material was almost always tuff, solidified volcanic ash. Craftsmen worked the quarry at Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater at the centre of the island and teams of islanders would transport the sculptures to locations all around the island using a method that is still a mystery. After centuries of neglect, the moai are today protected in Rapa Nui National Park, which is honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise visitors can climb up to the craters at Rano Raraku or Rano Kau or drive along the coast. You'll see moai everywhere.

2:00am 8:00am Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu, or islets - welcome to Bora Bora, perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific. Only 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui. No wonder those generations of travellers - including novelist James Michener - regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise.

2:00am 8:00am Raiatea, French Polynesia
Considered the second largest island in French Polynesia, Raiatea is situated approximately 120 miles northwest of Tahiti. For the Polynesian "Maohi," ancestor of today's Tahitian, Raiatea was known as "Sacred Havai'i" and was the centre of royalty, religion, culture and history. The principal village is Uturoa, with a population of over 10,000. This bustling port town features a colourful market and arts and crafts shops along the waterfront. Raiatea is currently undergoing a renaissance, with special attention being given to preserve the island's rich culture and heritage.

  4:00am Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia
Immortalized by Gauguin's paintings, Tahiti is much more than an island; it's a state of mind. Papeete, capital of Tahiti, is the chief port and trading centre. It's also a provocateur luring people to her shores. Today the island is a charming blend of Polynesian "joie de vivre" and Gallic sophistication. But venture out from Papeete, and you'll find a landscape of rugged mountains, lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and deserted beaches.
