Aranui V

13 Day Cruise in the Tuamotu, Marquesas Islands and Bora Bora (departing Thursday)

The brand new Aranui V launched in November 2015. The combined passenger and cargo vessel will cruise from Tahiti to the Marquesas Islands, the most remote archipelago in the world and to the beautiful island of Bora Bora. ‘Aranui’ means ‘Great Highway’ in Maori and the Aranui V is named after her predecessors, which carried cargo and passengers between the Marquesas and the rest of the world. The Aranui V offers guests more style and comfort with modern and luxurious cabin categories and inviting open spaces perfect for socializing with your fellow guests including the super stylish Sky Bar and Veranda Bar. Other amenities also include a swimming pool, fitness room and massage room.




Dining Room

The large restaurant is situated on the 'Restaurant Deck'. Dining is an informal affair on board the Aranui and depending on the number of passengers travelling, meals will be taken in either one or two sittings. Your itinerary includes full board with breakfast served buffet-style. Menus at lunch and dinner will vary according to whatever fresh local ingredients are available and during shore excursions you will either be provided with a picnic or a meal at a local restaurant. Complimentary wine will be provided at lunch and dinner
