To the islands

Aranui Cruises’ latest ship Aranui 5 sets sail today on its maiden voyage from Papeete in Tahiti. The custom-built, dual-purpose vessel replaces Aranui 3 (there is no Aranui 4) and will continue to deliver cargo to ports across the Marquesas, Tuamotu and Society Islands while passengers disembark and explore during the 14-day round-trip journeys. The 254-passenger freighter offers Aranui’s first single staterooms, new premium and deluxe cabin categories and suites, and significantly more balcony cabins. It also has airconditioned public spaces, restaurant, four bars, lounge, library, computer room, spa and fitness and boutique.

Intimate Alaska

AdventureSmith Explorations has a new “Islands, Whales & Glaciers” itinerary on the newly acquired, 10-passenger yacht Misty Fjord. Guests cruise between Sitka and Juneau or enjoy an alternative route from Petersburg or Ketchikan. Native culture and off-the-beaten-path explorations include excursions by sea kayak, zodiac and on foot in this corner of southeast Alaska, while a hover flight at Taku Glacier brings guests onto an amphibious hovercraft vehicle designed to travel over ice, water, sandbars and grasslands. Other new Alaska itineraries include an eight-day “Glacier Bay & Island Adventure”, with a focus on local nature, history and First Nations culture.
