This Ship Is Party in the Front, Business in the Backby Donna Heiderstadt | March 24, 2016
Where Aranui 5 differs most from traditional cruise ships is that your time ashore is dictated by its off-load and on-load schedules, so you may spend just a few hours in some ports and more than a day in others. Islands you'll visit on the 14-day Marquesas itinerary include Nuku Hiva, Ua Pou, Ua Huka, Hiva Oa, and Fatu Hiva, as well as Rangiroa and Bora Bora. In certain ports, excursions are included.
