Day 1: Melbourne

Located on the shores of Port Phillip bay on Australia's south coast, Melbourne has been dubbed the "Paris of the south". Its narrow downtown streets boast a wide range of art galleries, luxury grocery stores, restaurants and cafés. The Royal Exhibition Building, a UNESCO World Heritage site in the heart of elegant Carlton Gardens, is one of the world's oldest exhibition pavilions. While you're there, you can visit the adjacent Melbourne Museum. To savour the atmosphere of an old-time seaside resort, visit St Kilda Beach and its historic landmark, the century-old amusement park.

Trousers Point on Flinders Island is known for its crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches and brightly coloured lichen covered granite. Overlooked by the spectacular Mt Strzelecki, guests will be able to take the 1 ½ hour (3.5km) circuit track, showcasing the unusual rock formations, offshore islands and white sand beaches. They will also have the opportunity to swim in the refreshing waters of Trousers point.

During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness centre. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the PONANT photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

The vibrant city of Fremantle blends the old with the new, creating an enriching cultural experience. Maritime, convict and colonial history can be explored in one of the best-preserved examples of a 19th century port streetscape on Earth, while buzzing markets, lively bars and casual street cafés give you a taste of 21st century life with the locals. If you're hitting the heritage trail, be sure to include a visit to the Western Australian Maritime Museum, World Heritage listed Fremantle Prison and Western Australia's oldest public building, the Roundhouse.
