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.
Wow, thanks. Certainly sounds fascinating. Do you have a blog or website?
