San Diego, California, USA »   11 pm
From the old Gas Lamp Quarter to the Horton Plaza, named after the former owner of the present city area, San Diego combines history with progress. Bordered on one side by the graceful Pacific Ocean lapping its shores and the hot desert plains on the other, this magical city is a festive and colorful attraction for tourists and locals. Close by lies graceful La Jolla, Spanish for the jewel, and Solana Beach, a beach community located near charming Del Mar. Whether you venture into Old Town, the original site of this city, or one of its gorgeous parks, you'll come to understand why San Diego has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the United States.

Dec 5, Monday
Rangiroa, French Polynesia » 8 am 5 pm
The second largest atoll in the world, Rangiroa is not only a beautiful Polynesian escape, it is also a renowned dive destination. Below the surface of turquoise waters is a fascinating world of colorful fish, who fearlessly swim next to their human visitors, making the two-legged, snorkel-wearing creatures a temporary part of the ecosystem. On land, working pearl farms, quiet villages and secluded resorts entice guests to become a part of a culture that values neighborly friendliness and relaxation.
Dec 6, Tuesday
Bora Bora, Society Islands (overnight) » 10 am  
James Michener called it the most beautiful island in the world, for Bora Bora fulfills your every fantasy of how an island paradise should be. Majestic 2,000-foot-high peaks tower over its tranquil lagoon, their reflections mirrored in glassy waters. Thatch-roofed huts lie cradled beneath shady palms on sugar-white beaches as the scent of exotic flowers wafts through the air. Colorfully decorated le trucks wait ashore, ready to take you on a discovery of the island's awesome beauty. Nearby, glass-bottom boats lie poised, awaiting the opportunity to introduce you to an undersea world that is rich with vibrant sea life.

Dec 8, Thursday
Moorea, Society Islands » 8 am 6 pm
As your Crystal ship enters Cook's Bay, the dramatic spire made famous as Bali Hai in the movie South Pacific, towers in the distance and welcomes you to Mooréa. As this island is a jewel of crystalline lagoons, fjord-like bays, azure waters and velvety mountain peaks, it seems only natural that this exquisite island should have been selected as the location of the 1983 movie, The Bounty.

The ancient Polynesians chose Mooréa as their pleasure island. Here, pristine beaches are flanked by groves of pineapple, vanilla and coffee.
 
Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands (overnight) » 9 pm  
Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia, is by no means a sleepy town. With an international airport, wide waterfront-boulevard and new buildings, it boasts all the modern trappings of civilization. Its engaging atmosphere is vibrantly alive, a marvelous potpourri of European manner and carefree island ways. A few steps from our pier, boutiques and galleries abound as Tahitian shopkeepers dressed in bright paréos greet customers with a welcoming iaorana. The nearby open-air market is a bustle of activity. Away from the clamor of town are peaceful fern grottos, tiny villages tucked in verdant valleys and ancient sacred maraes.
