Aranui Cruises operates 13-night cruises from Tahiti to the Marquesas Archipelago, some 1500 kilometres north-east of Tahiti. There are 17 departures to choose from in 2011.
This specially-built hybrid passenger/cargo ship was launched in 2003 to carry 200 passengers and 3000 tonne of cargo to some of the most remote and beautiful islands in the world.
The ship offers four standards of accommodation, ranging from top end Suites and Deluxe cabins down to multiple share accommodation. All of the main cabin types are spacious, fully air conditioned and have en-suites. The ship has a library, gym, swimming pool, two lounges, a bar and a 150 seat dining room.
All meals are buffet style, complimentary wine is served with lunch and dinner onboard and there is no pre-set seating plan.
All shore excursions are included in the cost of the passage.
The Marquesas Archipelago is a visual paradise of lush jagged volcanic islands that is breathtaking in natural beauty. Many of the islands are sparsely populated and often the Aranui's guests are the only visitors.
