Cruise the turquoise waters of the South Pacific to the remote, exotic Marquesas on a combined working cargo/passenger ship, the link to the rest of the world for these islands. Along the way, stop at Tahiti, Fakarava, Rangiroa, Bora Bora, and Moorea—the islands of Paul Gauguin and Captain Bligh, black pearl farmers and ancient tiki sculptors, where lush volcanic peaks rise dramatically from the ocean and peaceful lagoons ring coral atolls.
