A 14-day adventure cruise in French Polynesia

The most remote archipelago in the world, the French Polynesian Marquesas is a cluster of wildly beautiful islands around 900 miles northeast of Tahiti. Aranui 3 – a cargo cum passenger cruise ship – is the only ship to sail the 2,200-mile, 14-day round trip from Papeete to all six inhabited Marquesas Islands, operating a regular schedule all year round.

A lifeline to the outside world, the Aranui delivers everything from cement to brake pads, bulldozers to boats to the islands’ remote valleys. Whilst the ship delivers these vital supplies, passengers are taken ashore to explore mysterious, unspoiled jungles and to experience the fascinating local culture.
