eWaterways is delighted to introduce the incredible Aranui 5. Part passenger, part freighter, this upscale vessel provides exclusive access the Marquesas Islands’ history, culture and breathtaking scenery
Do you have clients that have been there, done that and want something ever more off the beaten track? To see the world in an authentic way? To have an experience unlike any other?
Located over 1,500km northeast of Tahiti, The Marquesas Islands – known as The Land of Men – are waiting to be discovered; a paradise lost and now found with the new custom-built Aranui 5.
This upscale ship – part passenger, part freighter – is the main supply line to this archipelago, providing passage in great comfort to areas inaccessible by conventional methods.
For the past 30 years the Aranui, with its Polynesian staff and crew, has been introducing these mystical islands to the outside world. Guests will discover what Tahiti looked like 50 years ago, visiting all six of the islands in the Marquesas, as well as Fakarava and Rangiroa in the Tuamotus and Bora Bora in the Society Islands on this 14-day cruise. Experience the richness of the Marquesas, from its people to its history and culture to its breathtaking scenery.
Life on board
Aranui 5 is designed to offer all of the comforts of a cruise ship, while operating as a supply vessel. Classified as a small ship, it has just 103 cabins. With eight different guest decks, the interior decor reflects the Polynesian heritage of its owners and crew.
The ship features a restaurant where all the meals on board are served in a casual setting; two lounges; two conference rooms, where guest lecturers will offer presentations on various topics related to the Marquesas; four bars, including
the Sky Bar with sweeping panoramic views; an outdoor pool; a boutique; a massage room and a gym.
This is soft adventure and cultural immersion at its best.
