These islands are the Marquesas Archipelago, 1500 kilometres north-east of Tahiti, the nor thernmost part of French Polynesia. They are home to fewer than 10,000 people and seem untouched by time. The adventure begins from Papeete when you board the specially-built freighter Aranui 3, which carries 3000 tonnes of freight and 200 passengers. The ship was built in 2002 and went into service the next year – it is the most moder n and comfortable vessel to ply the combined passenger and freight route here amongst the six inhabited islands. Aranui 3 offers many of the amenities you would find in a big ship, such as 86 spaciously appointed cabins, all with ensuites, two lounges, bar, gym, library, sw imming pool and sun deck. The ship is air-conditioned throughout. The fourteen-day cruise visits both Fakarava and Rangiroa in the Tuamotu Archipelago as part of its journey to the Marquesas, an area of the Pacific that has entranced wester n explorers, artists, travellers and dreamers for almost four hundred years; while the native Polynesians have made it their home for around 2000 years. The spectacular volcanic landscapes will inspire you and the gracious and hospitable staff, many of whom have been on Aranui 3 for years, will introduce you to this Polynesian paradise and its centuries-old customs and explain the connection between the or iginal peoples of the Marquesas, the early explorers and the famous artists and writers like Paul Gauguin, Robert Louis Stevenson and Jacques Brel who lived on the islands.
