旅遊南太平洋大溪地及其它法屬波利尼西亞島嶼 (一) / Travel to Tahiti & Other Polynésie française Islands in the South Pacific Ocean (1)
Arrived back from vacation at abt 2 am ... with part of me left behind as finger food for an eel off the shore of Fakarava Island, Polynésie française !!!
The ship I took was the Aranui 3.
According to Wikipedia:
M/V Aranui 3 is a mixed passenger/cargo vessel operating between Tahiti and the Marquesas. With a homeport of Papeete, French Polynesia, Aranui 3 is registered as a passenger ship under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), for international operation. She was built in Romania and entered service in 2003.
Apart from supplying cargo to the six ports in the Marquesas, Aranui 3 also operates a passenger service and tourist cruise as part of its multi-weeks itinerary. It also stops at the islands of Rangiroa and Fakarava in the Tuamotu Islands.
More photos, videos and articles to come .....
