Discover the fascinating history, culture and scenic beauty of Tahiti’s remote Marquesas Islands with the working freighter, Aranui 5. This ruggedly beautiful archipelago has inspired many artists including Paul Gauguin and they remain uncommercialised and naturally stunning. The 13 night voyage begins in Papeete, heading for the Marquesas Islands and returning via Bora Bora. This is a unique voyage where you can experience life onboard a freighter ship as the crew deliver essential supplies to isolated villages providing an essential link to the outside world. Watching the dexterity of the crew as they unload food, electrical goods and even cars is simply fascinating!
Whilst the Aranui 5 is a freighter, the Aranui 5 has been purpose-built for this destination and provides plenty of passenger space and spacious and comfortable accommodations. With two lounges, four bars, conference rooms, swimming pool, massage room, gym and more, the Aranui 5 takes freighter cruising to a whole new level.
