Tahiti’s freighter cruise line, Aranui, will make its first scheduled calls to Bora Bora next year including a special Christmas visit.
Aranui usually sails a series of 14-day cruises to French Polynesia’s Marquesas and Tuamotus islands, but will also add two visits to Bora Bora in April and December 2014.
“We visited Bora Bora for the first time during Aranui 3’s 10th birthday celebrations earlier this year and after seeing how much our passengers enjoyed it, we realised we needed to call more regularly,” explained Aranui’s regional representative for Australia & New Zealand, Laurent Wong.
“We pride ourselves on showing off some of the most beautiful parts of French Polynesia and by including Bora Bora, our passengers get the opportunity to see three very different archipelagos.”
The Aranui is a mixed passenger and cargo vessel that can accommodate approximately 200 passengers. Despite its status as a freighter, the ship features leisure facilities such as a swimming pool and sun deck.
