Pacific Pearl cruise in March 2013
Member Name: skiedagain
Cruise Date: March 2013
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

Port Rating: Not Rated
It is hard to be fair to the city of Noumea. It is, after all, a big city with all the problems that big cities have. The harbour is dirty, there are factories and mills spilling black smoke into the air and we have just spent the last three days visiting unspoiled pristine tropical islands.

Our tour guide was lovely and showed us some beautiful locations. Once the tour was over we saw the problems that do not show up in a normal tour. The homeless population, the dirty water and the overpriced shopping come to mind.

This town would have probably been the high point of a European cruise but it just doesn't compare to the smaller stops on this cruise.
