But you never know. People wanting to visit Pitcairn on a big ship will be disappointed - what happens is that big ships lay offshore and islanders come aboard to sell souvenirs etc. But if you don't land you cannot claim you have been there. The island's Bounty history is of course fascinating and that made it No.1 on my bucket list.

Expedition cruise ships also visit the other islands in the Pitcairn group - Oeno, Ducie and Henderson which is a World Heritage Site. These islands are uninhabited atolls and are great places for sea bird colonies.

Our trip sailed from Tahiti and went to Easter Island.
