For adventurers seeking a cruise beyond the ordinary to a place of untold beauty surrounded by the genuine hospitality of a Pacific Island nation that is passionate about sharing its rich and ancient culture, a trip aboard Aranui 5 to the remote Marquesas islands archipelago in French Polynesia, is truly a journey of a lifetime. …
Activities on board
An essential element of a cruise in French Polynesia, the Society Islands owe their name to the Royal Society of London, which financed the first voyage of Captain Cook in 1769. There are two of them, the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands, which can be visited on a dedicated 7-day cruise with Aranui.
During a cruise to the Marquesas Islands aboard Aranui 5, dive in to the heart of Polynesian traditions and take an intimate and authentic journey to explore the richness of the ancestral culture, in its still preserved spaces. Discover the songs and dances, enhanced and organised every year by the “Marquesas Arts Festival”!
