Cruising Tahiti's Marquesas Islands with the Aranui 5 is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!  Unlike traditional cruising, the Aranui 5 is a working freighter delivering supplies to the people living on the remote Marquesas Islands. Everything from fresh goods to cars and building supplies arrives via Aranui 5 and watching the unloading operation is fascinating! 

Aranui Cruises began solely as a freighter service, adding passenger accommodation in 1984 with Aranui I.   As demand for more passenger berths increased, the ships have been replaced and now the Aranui 5 combines the freighter requirements with comfortable passenger accommodations, restaurant, bars, swimming pool and more.  Passengers are able to experience the magic of cruising Tahiti's spectacular isles whilst seeing the freighter in action.  

Shore excursions are included throughout the cruise, should you wish to participate.  The Marquesas Islands are so remote that you won’t be overrun with other tourists. Instead, the ship is eagerly awaited by the locals who will greet you and welcome you ashore. The children are likely to take your hand and the women will delight in showing you their crafts. Learn about the ancient traditions of tattooing, the history of famous writers and artists who called the Marquesas home, or enjoy the guided walks to see the spectacular scenery and sights. You may wish to do some or all of the activities on offer, or simply sit back and watch the crew in action. However you decide to enjoy the Marquesas, this is one trip that will stand out from the rest.
