Day 10 Moorea, French Polynesia

Tendered: 08:00 - 20:00

Moorea is the picture-perfect vision of an ideal island paradise. Formed by volcanic activity, this heart-shaped island hidden a few short miles off the Tahiti mainland holds beaches that look out to bright blue waters and soaring green peaks of mountains. You can head to Tiki Village to experience a traditional Polynesian dance, hike up to Belvedere Lookout for views of the famous Cook's Bay and volcanic Mount Tohivea, or go snorkelling in the lagoon at Opunohu Bay. While you're here you can also check out the Moorea Dolphin Center to get up close and personal with nature's cutest, most intelligent sea creatures.

In Moorea, you'll find plenty of the Tahitian signature dishes including the chicken fafa which is baked in an underground oven with coconut milk and spinach. The island also offers higher-end spots serving innovative and regionally inspired fare such as prawn curry or mahi-mahi with ginger and lemon sauce.

Please note this port is accessed by tender boats. Boarding and disembarking tender boats may involve steps and uneven surfaces.

Day 11 Raiatea, French Polynesia

Tendered: 07:00 - 18:00

Raiatea is traditionally known as ancient Havai'i, the sacred island at the centre of the Polynesian Triangle from which the islands of Hawaii and New Zealand were reached.

Along its eastern coastline is the ceremonial site of Marae Taputapuatea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where ancient Polynesians held rituals for their gods and sought safety for their seafarers. Today, Marae Taputapuatea is still used as a sacred departure point for voyagers crossing to other Pacific Islands in outrigger canoes. Emerald peaks rise in Raiatea's interior that are cloaked in tropical flowers, fruit trees, taro plantations and wild foliage. It's where streams trickle and waterfalls roar. With few beaches on the main island, the lush shoreline of Raiatea cedes to a vibrant lagoon hosting every shade of blue and coral reefs rife with marine life including reef sharks, rays and sea turtles.

Surrounding the main island are motu (tiny islets of palm trees ringed by white sand beaches) which are easily reached on a lagoon tour. Cruises to Raiatea, French Polynesia set you up for an incredible day trip to the sister island of Taha'a, where life moves slowly amidst the vanilla farms tucked in the foothills of the island's rolling hills.

Please note this port is accessed by tender boats. Boarding and disembarking tender boats may involve steps and uneven surfaces. While cruise lines strive to provide ease of access, accessibility options can vary at different tender ports.
