Marquesas Islands Cruise: SAVE 10% on selected 2018 voyages

On this remarkable South Pacific adventure, discover the intoxicating beauty of the remote, luxuriant and untouched Marquesas Islands. The custom-built vessel, the Aranui 5, operates as a "freighter to paradise" delivering essential supplies to these remote islands.

The Aranui 5 has been beautifully designed with added space for passenger comfort and pleasure. The vessel will be capable of carrying 254 passengers. There will be a total of 103 cabins including 32 Suites, 31 Superior Deluxe staterooms and 40 standard staterooms. The Suites have a king size bed and a sofa bed. All guest rooms will have a private bathroom with shower. There will be berths for 24 passengers in the Class C dormitory, and these five rooms will each have a bathroom and shower.

The Aranui 5 has air conditioning in all passenger areas and indoor public spaces, which are beautifully designed. The interior decor features Marquesan designs, Paul Gauguin prints and original paintings by German artist and island resident, Erhard Lux. The cruise includes three meals with complementary wine daily, guided excursions, picnics, and meals on shore. Optional excursions such as scuba diving, horseback riding and fishing are an additional cost.

Guided shore excursions include hikes to the waterfalls of Nuku Hiva; a trip to Gaugin's former home and grave on Hiva Oa; jeep trips to explore mysterious unspoiled jungles, mountain villages and significant ancient temples; local galleries, museums and much more. Picnics and restaurant lunches ashore feature local food. And there are opportunities to snorkel in the translucent waters of the atolls on the more traditional palm fringed French Polynesian islands of Tuamotu and Bora Bora.
