Join us for a cruise onboard the Aranui November 19 to December 2, 2011. Frank and Hinano Murphy will be onboard as featured lecturers, and with you through all the island adventures. For many reasons voyaging on the Aranui is a spectacular way to see the Marquesas. As well as being a comfortable cruise ship the Aranui is a freighter, so it necessarily goes to all of the islands, and gets a great reception at each stop. The crew of the ship is made up of local islanders, from the freight hands to the cruise staff, and right up to the captain. Each day brings a new island, and what incredible islands they are. Nuku Hiva, Hiva Oa, Ua Po, Fatu Hiva… the names invoke epic tales of the south seas, the islands themselves are some of the most spectacular found anywhere on earth, and the people embody Polynesian culture and hospitality. We are going to have a great group onboard, so come and join us for the trip of a lifetime.
