Hi Everyone

 Today we were at Mystery Island, a firm favourite for anybody who has travelled around the South Pacific, but it was the first time I had the opportunity to get ashore here for a few years. 

 The centre of Mystery Island is a grass runway which stetches the length of the Island, which is used by small planes to bring in supplies and also the port officials who clear the ship on arrival. 

It appears that there has been rapid expansion because this runway, located between coconut palms and beach, now has a terminal building; sorry guys, no sign of the duty free shop yet!

Traditionally the outrigger was used to access mystery Island from the mainland.

Natalie Gruzlewski with Pacific Dawn's Captain, David Box

Here is a photo of Getaway Presenter Natalie Gruzlewski with Pacific Dawn’s Captain, David Box.

This Thursday night at 7.30pm, Getawayon Channel 9 will feature our very own Pacific Dawn.  You may recall this blog reporting back in May that the Getaway film crew and presenter Natalie Gruzlewski captured the highlights of life on board including the roaming circus performers, the Pirates of the Pacific Show, an interview with Captain David Box and beach cricket at Isle of Pines.

Finally the day has arrived for the program to air and we are very excited.

So on Thursday night, take the phone off the hook and tune in to Channel 9 at 7.30pm as Pacific Dawn takes centre stage.


Pacific Dawn at Sunrise

This is a great photo taken last week of Pacific Dawn passing under the Harbour Bridge as she arrived in Sydney at around 6am.   The photo was taken by one of our Head Office staff members, Bruce Peters, and was so good we thought we would share it with you.


Here, the Pacific Dawn crew will share what life is really like onboard.

Articles will be posted from the ship each week. If you have a specific question about cruising, check out our online FAQ's and Cruise Guide.
Your comments will be uploaded within business hours, Monday – Friday AUS 9am – 5pm; NZ 7am – 3pm
