Bounty Bay

Lost in Lush Greenery

The Samoa Islands are one of the most popular destinations in the Pacific Ocean. Their crystal clear water, beaches surrounded by the green of wild nature, and the hospitality of the Samoan people, are the perfect recipe for a dream vacation with MSC World Cruises.

 
Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa, located on the island of Tutuila, offering a splendor for the eyes thanks to the magnificent mountains and forests that occupy much of the territory.
In the city, you will start off your excursion with the discovery of Samoan culture at the Jean P. Haydon Museum, home to several local traditional artifacts. In the western part of the city lies the picturesque farmer's market where you can find colorful fragrant produce, such as delicious exotic fruits.
 
During your holiday with MSC on this beautiful island, you will have the chance to explore the western and southern areas, home to Matafao Park, the highest peak of American Samoa, or Tia Seu Lupe, an ancient star-shaped Polynesian burial mound. You will experience a close encounter with the wonders of this place by admiring Flowerpot Rock, an unusual rock formation, while in the background of the capital city, Mount Alava is an excellent destination for your excursions along the ridge and is the official path to the National Park of American Samoa. Not to be missed is a jump into the water of Leone Falls found in the village of the same name, where there is also a basalt quarry, an important archaeological center of the country. Many of the objects and artifacts found in and around the Pacific Rim were carved out of the stone extracted from this quarry.
 
There will also be moments of relaxation during your MSC cruise on one of the beautiful beaches of Pago Pago, the Alega Beach, an ideal spot for snorkeling, and the super-white Tula Beach.

    Pitcairn

    Daleko od svega
    Daleko od svega

    Jedno od najudaljenijih mjesta koje ćete ikad posjetiti na svijetu je Pitcairnovo Otočje u južnom Tihom oceanu, smješteno između Novog Zelanda, Tahitija i zapadne obale Latinske Amerike.

    Nakon iskrcaja s vašeg MSC broda, posjetit ćete jedan od britanskih prekomorskih teritorija i jedini naseljen otok, Pitcairn, u arhipelagu od četiri u čijoj blizini se nalazi i otok Henderson - nekoć naseljen i kojeg su kolonizirali Polinezijci, a danas uvršten na UNESCO-ov popis Svjetske kulturne baštine - i dva manja, dvije atole, Ducie i Oeno.


    Na otoku je nastanjeno oko pedesetak stanovnika, Pitcairn ima školu, crkvu, dom zdravlja i prodavaonicu i to sve u Adamstownu, glavnom gradu otoka.


    Ovo je jedinstvena prilika da upoznate ovih izoliranih pet kvadratnih kilometara, tijekom vašeg MSC World Cruise krstarenja, kojeg nastanjuju potomci poznatih Bounty ubojica koji su se ovdje doselili 1790. godine. Ostaci broda i dalje leže na dnu mora u uvali Bounty Bay, na sjevernoj strani otoka nedaleko od pristaništa kojim se služi Adamstown. Ovdje ćete imati priliku vidjeti i nekoliko olupina brodova spašenih posljednjih godina, naslaganih kao konzerve, uz glavnu cestu otoka i u luci. 


    Pitcairn ima samo jednu asfaltiranu cestu, ostale su makadamske, stoga se lokalno stanovništvo pretežno služi četverokotačima, automobilima na pogon sva četiri kotača (4x4) ili pješice.
