Over the course of 13 days, this part-freighter and part luxury liner takes passengers and essential good to the edges of civilisation – from the wild islands of Tuamotu to the pristine isles of Marquesas and back to Papeete. The beauty of the Marquesas has been penned by the likes of Herman Melville and painted by greats like Paul Gauguin. Travellers will find themselves craggy volcanic peaks surrounded by lush rainforests, the islands lined by silky white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters.
Showcasing the best of the Islands of Tahiti, Aranui 5 cruise is a soft adventure and cultural immersion experience. Every day, the ship will unveil a new aspect of French Polynesia, whether at its various ports of call or onboard. Besides the Marquesas, the ship will also visit fan-favourites like Bora Bora, Fakarava and Rangiroa. But the itinerary’s real stars are the hidden gems like Puamau, Hakahau, Atuona, Kokuu and others. These islands are untouched by modernity, pollution and showcase a wealth of natural beauty and thousands of years old culture.
