Aranui Cruises includes Marquesas

Tahitian cruise line Aranui Cruises will include a call to the Marquesas Festival this year. Held every two years in the Marquesas Islands, the festival alternates between a mini and main arts festival. The 2017 mini festival will be four days of Polynesian music and dance from 18-21 December 2017, at Tahuata, the smallest of the inhabited Marquesas Islands. To coincide, Aranui Cruises’ ship Aranui 5 will make an extended visit to Tahuata on 20 December so guests can participate in cultural festivity and feast.
