Cruise passengers will find pristine, unspoiled eco systems where they can see exotic flora and fauna. Various cruise ships visit the island as they cross the pacific and guests will find the relaxed pace of the island a nice change from the hectic life of more populated cities. Simply take time to relax and unwind in this island paradise.
Adamstown calls itself the smallest capital in the world, and, with a population of only 56, it’s a convincing claim. The small Hamlet is a UK territory in the South Pacific and has remained isolated from main stream tourism. The island has a rich history and was founded in 1790 by bounty mutineers who were escaping from British naval law. Its original discoverer charted its location incorrectly so it became a perfect refuge for mutineers. This history is far behind the Islands now and Adamstown has become a tourist destination and a port of call for cruise companies such as Princess Cruises and Oceania Cruises.
