Aranui 5
A 14-day adventure cruise - in the French Polynesia & Marquesas islands - from Tahiti
A cruise to Marquesas is a real adventure that is often seen as a journey of a lifetime. The "Aranui" atmosphere of this unique cruise of its kind will be preserved, the discovery of the “Terre des Hommes” (Land of Men) aboard the Aranui 5 will remain for many one of the most amazing experiences ever lived… After the Tuamotu atolls you will discover the amazing mountains of Nuku Hiva, Ua Huka, Uo Pou, Hiva Oa et Fatu Hiva.

With a total length of 126m, featuring air-conditioning and lifts, the new passenger/freighter ship can carry up to 254 passengers accommodated in magnificent suites and cabins more spacious and comfortable, of which a great number of units with private balcony.

At the expanded bar-lounge, the spirited crew sing and strum Polynesian rhythms on their hand-crafted ukuleles. They’ll teach you to gyrate your hips to rapid, hypnotic beats of the tamure. The dedicated crew are descendants of the greatest navigators of all time -- the ancient Polynesians. They have learned about what matters to modern navigators and to the guests.This is voyaging at its best -- interior South Sea designs, seafaring stability, warm hospitality and
