We were really happy to finally arrive into our first port stop, Noumea. Nearly didn't get here as their was an 'emergency call' for medical assistance for a sick passenger. The boat was held up and re-routed slightly until the passenger was air lifted off the boat.
Rather than having the whole day in Noumea, we arrive late afternoon and only had a couple of hours in the evening for quick 'city tour' in the dark. Didn't see much, however our 'island greeting' dancers on the ground were still happy.
