Aranui 5's 2024 Cruise Schedule

Posted by Andrew Castles on November 16, 2022

 

For more than 30 years, Aranui Cruises’ unique ‘half cargo / half passenger’ ships have been taking avid adventurers on one of the most fascinating voyages anywhere on the planet. Aranui 5, the crown jewel in their pursuit of the ultimate passenger-freighter, will take you to far-flung corners of French Polynesia, resupplying tiny communities living far from civilisation with everyday items such as new refrigerators, televisions and motor vehicles. 

During your Aranui 5 cruise, all your meals and scheduled excursions are included as you discover the magic that attracted Paul Gauguin, Robert Louis Stevenson, Thor Heyerdahl and Jacques Brel to this remote region. The ship’s gracious staff and crew, many of whom are from the islands you will visit during the cruise, will welcome you as family and delight in introducing you to their centuries-old customs. Onboard, you will also enjoy getting to know knowledgeable lecturers and guides as they share the French Polynesian culture with you as you explore these captivating islands.

 

 

With Aranui 5’s 2023 cruise calendar already filling quickly, now is the best time for you to book your 2024 cruise. And, in excellent news for travellers, there’s a 10% Earlybird Saving off the base cruise fare when you book and deposit your 2024 Aranui 5 French Polynesia cruise with Expedition Cruise Specialists before 28 February 2023. That’s a saving of up to $2,986 per couple on the classic 12-day Marquesas Islands cruise.

Check out Aranui 5’s 2024 schedule below. There’s a series of the ever-popular 12-day Marquesas Islands cruises on offer, plus three Discovery Cruises, the first to Pitcairn Island and the second and third to the Austral Islands. It always pays to secure a spot on the Discovery Cruises as early as possible, as capacity is limited to just 230 travellers on each cruise.
