Today aboard the Aranui we visit perhaps my favorite of the Marquesas Island chain, Fatu Hiva, which has some of the most amazing culture, local arts, beautiful bays, and amazing hiking that Polynesia has to offer. https://youtu.be/o1Nx2JuuFIM From Tahiti Island Travel: At about 75 kilometers from Hiva Oa, Fatu Hiva is the southernmost island in...

Bora Bora might be the most perfect island on the planet, with crystal clear blue lagoons, amazing scuba and snorkeling, and some of the most amazing beaches in the world. https://youtu.be/sepxuCTcOqk I was fortunate enough to explore this island paradise with Aranui cruises this year, and got to experience first hand what island life is...
