Spend Christmas cruising in the Marquesa Islands

Aranui 3

Marquesas Island adventure cruiser, the Aranui 3, has announced its special Christmas cruise featuring three very different French Polynesian archipelagos – Marquesas, Tuamotu and Society  – culminating with a Christmas Day treat on Bora Bora.

Guest speakers will include the highly regarded French Polynesian expert from the French Marine Protected Areas Agency, Sophie-Dorothée Duron. Departing from Papeete, Tahiti on 13 December, guests on board the mixed passenger/cargo vessel will be treated to a 14-day tour of the Marquesas Islands, on an  itinerary that has been created to climax with a memorable Christmas Day on Bora Bora.  The vessel has 86 fully air-conditioned cabins as well as the capacity to carry more than 2,000 tons of freight.

Prices for the voyage, 13-26 December 2014, start at £3,306 per person sharing a standard twin-bedded outside cabin, including all meals with wine, all land-based sightseeing excursions and taxes.

Flights to/from Papeete, Tahiti are not included in these prices.  Air Tahiti Nui fly to Papeete with fares from around £1,560 per person return from London.
