French Polynesia

Inhale the sweet scent of vanilla in Raiatea

Settle into laid-back island life as you encounter the South Pacific’s pristine beaches and glistening lagoons aboard the luxurious Marina. Spend a day exploring Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia in the tropical paradise of Tahiti. The island’s volcanic peaks overlook lush rainforest, black-sand beaches, and cascading waterfalls. Embark Marina and sail to verdant Moorea. Take in the colors of this paradise—the greens of the volcanically-formed cliffs, the blues of the still-watered lagoons, and the white pops of the small tiare flower.

Fakarava, the following port, is home to many rare plant and animal species. Search for unique tropical birds before continuing to Rangiroa where marine life is abundant. Spend two days in Bora Bora, known as the most romantic island in the world, and two days in Raiatea, an island dotted with vanilla plantations that spread the rich, sweet scent. Before ending the cruise back in Papeete, stop in relaxed Huahine. Minimally impacted by modern times, this is the perfect place to relax and take in the sunshine, pristine natural areas, and easy-going attitudes of the locals.
