Day 1: Papeete, Tahiti | Embark

Your adventure begins at the beautiful Papeete port in the Society Islands. At 3 p.m., board the elegant and modern two-masted vessel, M/S Panorama II. Upon boarding, be welcomed with warm hospitality, a refreshing drink, and a delicious Welcome Dinner that will set the perfect tone for your upcoming journey. As the sun sets, the ship will depart from Papeete and begin its voyage towards the captivating island of Moorea.

Day 2: Moorea

While anchored in Moorea, you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and various watersports from the cruise ship's swimming platform in the beautiful sapphire-colored waters. A tasty lunch is also provided to ensure that you have enough energy for your afternoon exploration of the island.

As part of the cruise fares, you can join a 3.5-hour island tour with a knowledgeable guide who will share captivating tales about Moorea's rich history, vibrant culture, and diverse ecology. The tour includes traversing through the lush Opunohu Valley, ascending the slopes of Mt. Tohi'e'a, and passing by the picturesque Cook's and Opunohu Bays.

Following the tour, you can explore Moorea before the cruise ship sets sail for its next destination, Huahine.

Day 3-4: Huahine

Huahine, often likened to the mythical Garden of Eden, emerges as a vast tropical paradise teeming with life. Its lush expanses are adorned with coconut groves, vanilla orchids, banana plantations, breadfruit trees, and sprawling watermelon fields, creating a tapestry of vibrant colors and fragrant scents.

Today offers the freedom to explore Huahine at your own pace or partake in a meticulously crafted optional Private Motu Picnic and Snorkeling tour: Board the comfortable, traditional outrigger canoe for a cruise to Huahine. Along the way, your guides will share the island's history and sacred legends and provide insight into island life. Then, there is a stop in the coral gardens for snorkeling among the many species of tropical fish. After a good appetite, you can enjoy a delectable picnic on a white, sandy motu. Stop at the aquarium to meet the fish and reef sharks on the way back. Overnight in Huahine.

A single day scarcely does justice to the allure of Huahine!

Today, you have the freedom to explore Huahine at your leisure or opt for an optional tour taking you to many of the island's temples and small villages, offering a chance to see and feed the sacred blue-eyed eels of Faie Bay, as well as visit a vanilla plantation. If you're a keen cook, you should purchase vanilla beans while here; you won't find tastier - or cheaper! - versions elsewhere. Overnight at sea to Bora Bora.

Day 5-6: Bora Bora

Without a doubt, Bora Bora reigns supreme as the crown jewel of the South Pacific, holding the spotlight as French Polynesia's undisputed star. Today, the team arranged for you to experience the essence of Bora Bora with a unique excursion aboard Le Truck, a vibrant journey lasting approximately 2.5 hours (included in cruise fares). Climb aboard this colorful chariot as it guides you through Bora Bora's picturesque landscapes. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Tahitian history, traditions, and cultures as your knowledgeable guide narrates the 22-mile road encircling this legendary island. Explore the villages of Farepiti, Faanui, and Anau, each adorned with ancient "Marae" shrouded in mystery. As your adventure unfolds, be captivated by the breathtaking vistas from Matira Point, which offers unparalleled panoramas of paradise. Overnight in Bora Bora.

One mere day in Bora Bora doesn't suffice! As you descend, camera in hand, prepare for the awe-inspiring moment when the iconic Mount Otemanu graces your view. Once Bora Bora captivates your gaze, it's a memory that stays etched in your heart forever. Therefore, ensure your second day in Bora Bora is brimming with unforgettable moments that will linger with you for years. Whether you explore at your own pace or join on one of the meticulously crafted optional Shore Excursions, seize the opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. Overnight at sea to Taha'a. 

Day 7: Taha’a

Taha'a, fondly called Vanilla Island, boasts an exquisite natural landscape. Its verdant valleys are adorned with lush banana, watermelon, and coconut plantations. Resembling a flower in shape, the island serves as a sprawling sanctuary for the prized Tahitian vanilla orchid. Taha'a shares a continuous coral reef and crystal-clear lagoon, enhancing its allure as an idyllic retreat. As you lay at anchor in Taha'a, you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and watersports from the ship's swimming platform in her beautiful sapphire waters! Today, you can opt for a leisurely exploration or embark on an optional Shore Excursion enticing Vanilla Plantation & Rhumerie, promising a delightful journey into Taha'a's aromatic world. Overnight in Taha'a. 

Day 8-9: Raiatea

With its name translating to "faraway heaven," Raiatea once stood as the paramount cultural and religious hub of the Society Islands. Today, Raiatea is believed to be a sacred resting place for the spirits of these ancestors, drawing pilgrims seeking spiritual connection.

Embark on an enriching Shore Excursion to the Faaroa River with a Motu Beach Break (included in cruise fares) aboard a traditional Polynesian outrigger canoe.
