Aranui 3 Adds Takapoto to Marquesas Island Adventure Cruise


Marquesas Island adventure cruiser, the Aranui 3, will stop at the picturesque island of Takapoto in a change to the 2014 itinerary. This first stop on the cruise will be an idyllic introduction to the island cruise as passengers are invited to lunch on the white sand beach and to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear lagoon waters of this Tuamotu Archipelago island paradise.  The new stop replaces the previous scheduled stop in Fakarava.
This new shore visit to Takapoto is the first scheduled stop of the cruise and is followed by an incredibly varied itinerary sailing to Nuku Hiva, Ua Pou, Hiva Oa, Fatu Hiva, Tahuta and Ua Huka in the Marquesas Islands.
The Marquesas Island itinerary has been created to ensure that guests experience the strong local island culture and unspoilt scenery, including the unexpected black sand beaches and steep, forest covered volcanic peaks - a stark contrast to the more traditional French Polynesian fringed atolls.
