We chose that one mainly because we wanted to see Pacific islands and we called at seven, and Australia where I lived as a child.


You forgot to list your ports! ;)

Here they are...



(I've taken a screenshot of a spreadsheet I made before we went. Because of a heavy swell at Hiva Oa we called at Tahuata instead.)
