Tahiti’s Blue Lagoons Welcome More Cruise Ships

September 13, 2013 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Tahiti’s sparkling blue waters and stunning vistas are tempting cruise lines to the region in increasing numbers as the South Pacific gears up for a bumper cruise season in 2014.

Princess Cruises - Pacific Princess in TahitiCruise lines including Princess Cruises, Paul Gauguin Cruises and Windstar Cruises will expand their presence in Tahiti next year, with Windstar returning for the first time since 2005 to offer 28 seven-day itineraries from May.

Tahiti Tourisme Australia Director Robert Thompson said it was no surprise that Tahiti was emerging as the next cruise hot spot.

“Tahiti is made up of pristine archipelagos and cruising is undoubtedly one of the best ways to island hop. With more than 100 islands to explore and a tropical year-round climate, Tahiti really is an ideal cruise destination,” Mr Thompson said.

“Cruising is also a fantastic way to sample Tahiti’s different islands and atolls with shore tours offering the chance to explore Bora Bora’s blue lagoon, stroll Papeete’s picturesque harbour, discover black pearls on Huahine or taste tropical wine on Rangiroa.

“The great all-inclusive value of a cruise holiday offers an affordable way to see Tahiti and her islands and for some Australians there is a real nostalgia and sense of adventure that comes with crossing the vast Pacific.” Aranui 3 in the Marquesas

Australians can cruise from their doorstep to Tahiti with Princess Cruises offering a new departure of its 16-day New Zealand and South Pacific cruise from Sydney to Tahiti in February 2014, with calls to Papeete and Moorea.

Pacific Princess will also move to the South Pacific to offer three additional departures of the cruise line’s popular 10-day Tahiti and French Polynesia itinerary.

Year-round Tahiti operators Paul Gauguin Cruises and Aranui will continue to offer regular itineraries around the Society Islands, Tuamotus and the Marquesas archipelago while Oceania Cruises, Silversea, Regent Seven Seas and Royal Caribbean will also cruise the region, providing travellers with a range of options from super liner to freighter experiences.
