Victories In The Pacific Luxury Expedition Cruise

Walk in the footsteps of World War II history with world-renowned expert Richard Frank as your guide. Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours is pleased to introduce history buffs and adventurous travelers to key battlefield sites in the South Pacific Theater where some of the most famous conflicts of World War II were fought. The 14-day Victories in the Pacific cruise begins in Noumea, New Caledonia on March 4, 2012 and ends in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, visiting some of the most beautiful tropical islands on the globe. These destinations also teem with history and were the sites of famous battles that reshaped world history. Passengers on this voyage will be able to visit natives who rarely come in contact with Caucasians, view some of the rarest birds in the world, and dive in pristine waters filled with aquatic life.

Richard Frank is one of the world's most celebrated specialists on the Pacific War and has published numerous award-winning books. Most recently he was the historical consultant for the Golden Globe-winning HBO mini-series The Pacific. It is an honor to have Richard on board the Oceanic Discoverer, a 72-passenger luxury expedition ship.

Due to its small size, Oceanic Discoverer can access rarely-visited islands, giving guests a unique opportunity to explore the history and idyllic natural beauty of the South Pacific. You will have the opportunity to experience the locations of famous World War II battles such as Guadalcanal, Tulagi, Bougainville, and New Britain. In addition to the historical importance of this expedition, Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours has allotted generous time to soak in the natural beauty of the surroundings. Snorkel in some of the most pristine waters on the globe and view wildlife you have only seen in magazines or on film.
