Variety Cruises introduced their all-year-round operation in French Polynesia for 2021-2022.
The company offers two island-hopping itineraries in Society and Tuamotu Islands.
Sailing roundtrip from the port of Papeete Tahiti, the 49-passenger ms Panorama II will sail into spectacular atolls and islands and discover sacred temples, pristine beaches, lagoons, mountain peaks, and uncover French Polynesia’s culture.
Tahiti and the Pearls of French Polynesia is a 7-night cruise visiting all but one Society Islands, of which Bora Bora, Huahine, and Moorea.
Tahiti, the Society, and Tuamotu Islands is a 10-night cruise exploring the islands and crossing over to the lesser-known but exotic Tuamotu Archipelago islands including Makatea, Tetiaroa, Tikehau, and the world-famous Rangiroa.
Dates are all year round from December 2020 through November 2022.
MS Panorama II is the best small ship to explore the idyllic islands, accessing easily the crystal clear lagoons through passes and taking passengers close to shore. Variety Cruises’ programs feature optional excursions in most islands visited, many of which allow guests to discover the cultural and historical heritage of French Polynesia and its underwater life and treasures, straight from the swimming platform.
