Go beyond a typical Tahiti cruise during this island odyssey throughout French Polynesia and the remote Marquesas Islands. Follow in the creative footsteps of Symbolist artist Paul Gauguin as you explore his former home on Hiva Oa, then run your fingers along the hand-hewn surfaces of the largest Tiki sculptures found anywhere in the Pacific. Journey to Fakarava’s lagoon, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve teeming with seabirds and vibrant tropical fish. Admire colorful coral gardens from your glass-bottom boat near Tiputa on Rangiroa. Swim with playful manta rays and docile black-tipped reef sharks in Bora Bora’s Blue Lagoon prior to a romantic starlit overnight port stay. Trek along Moorea’s rolling Opunohu Valley trail past fruit plantations and through an exotic hardwood forest on your way to majestic views of Mount Mouaroa, Mount Rotu and Mount Tohiea—three of the highest summits in the Society Islands.
