This winter, imagine trading the freezing temperatures and routines of everyday life for the balmy paradise islands of the South Pacific. Our cruises to Tahiti and French Polynesia invite you to discover imaginative cultural experiences, outdoor adventures, and the region’s lasting legacies and sacred traditions. Plus, it’s closer than you think – the average flight from the West Coast to Papeete is shorter than a flight to Europe.
Here are our top five reasons you should experience the special beauty of these lands on a voyage with us.
- Marina: The Most Luxurious Ship in the South Pacific
Marina, the most luxurious and amenity-laden ship sailing Tahitian waters, offers the largest, most spacious accommodations of the ships sailing the region as well as the most Veranda Staterooms. You’ll have the luxury of choosing from 8 gourmet restaurants and an array of amenities such as the lavish Canyon Ranch SpaClub® and thought-provoking onboard enrichment that reflects the rich cultural heritage of the South Pacific.

- The Blue, Blue Water
Since you’ll be aboard Marina, you’ll wake up surrounded by that legendary blue South Pacific water every single day. You’ll also have each day to savor the beauty of it, whether gliding across it on a catamaran or kayak, or delving below it – snorkeling, diving or swimming. It really is that blue, clear and beautiful. There is a reason French Polynesia has long defined the term “tropical paradise.”

- Free-Spirited Island-Hopping
Every island is its own version of Eden and you can make the most of your time in this corner of world by a cruising from one island to the next. Experience the lush greenery of Moorea with an off-road safari one day and discover aromatic vanilla plantations on Raiatea or the famed lagoon of Bora Bora the next. Did we mention that you’ll finally experience paradise on Earth?
- Witnessing the Most Incredible Sunsets on the Planet
It’s no secret that this is one of the most gorgeous regions in the world. Everywhere you turn, you’ll discover another picture-perfect view, and this is dramatically magnified each day as the sun dips towards the horizon. Whether you’re toasting with Mai Tais during a deck party or dining ashore during an overnight in Bora Bora, the sunset will be a breathtaking reminder of one of the many reasons you planned this getaway.
