Check out Moorea Sandbar HERE


Winner of Travel and Leisure’s Best Travel Award as well as Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Winner in 2019 this small ship maneuvers intimately throughout the islands.  


7 Night on the highest-rated and longest continually-sailing cruise ship in the South Pacific (the best way to see this destination is on the water btw)

Departures throughout the year; June – August are the most popular


Friends, Couples, Multi-Generations, Honeymoon-ers- honestly, a life dream for most everyone who likes the beach, water and stunning “feel like you’re away from it all” scenery!


Serenity, calmness, relaxation, stunning beauty…how can your soul not feel soothed? Although not too far, it feels far and the feeling of truly being away, living to another rhythm is exactly what you need.


This luxurious journey includes so much and then so much more, meals accommodations, experiences… You won’t have a care in the world. 

Rest assured you’ll see seven shades of turquoise, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, hiking, mingling with the locals, dancing, dolphin watching, pearl hunting, and dining on the fresh catch every day. Gourmet dining curated by award-winning chef Jean-Pierre Vigato. Oh, yes, did I mention the private island visit, Motu Mahana, off the coast of Taha’a
