Silversea South Pacific Cruise: 64 days of boomer cruising adventure
Alan and I enjoy South Pacific cruises so much that we keep booking them—again and again. At last count, we’ve cruised the South Pacific five times. But this page is all about our 64-day Silversea South Pacific Cruise experience. We call it La-La because the small ship luxury cruise began and ended in Los Angeles.
Some of the links on this page are referral links. Read our Disclosure.
After embarking in Los Angeles, Silver Spirit crossed the Pacific to the Marquesas, explored French Polynesia, cruised both islands of New Zealand, touched on Tasmania and a few Australian ports before our voyage turned back toward L.A., stopping in Fiji and Hawaii. With a mix of plentiful sea days and interesting ports, South Pacific cruise itineraries don’t get much better than this.
