When we got to Noumea we were pretty happy to see land again. We purchased the “hop on, hop off” bus ticket which was recommended by friends that had also recently done this cruise.
We were a little disappointed with Noumea, as other than going to the beach or to a bar there wasn’t really much else to do or see. This may have been due to the time we arrived in Noumea, which was late in the afternoon.
We had our first real cocktails tonight while we watched the night lights of the city. It was very romantic as you can see from the photos.
