Escape the crowds: Aranui 5

Aranui5 600x400For an adventure that's not straight out of a guide book, embark on a voyage across the South Pacific to Pitcairn Island.

Following in the footsteps of the famed Bounty mutineers, Aranui 5 is offering a special voyage to Pitcairn via some of the most beautiful and untouched islands across three Polynesian archipelagos.

Designed to offer all of the comforts of a cruise liner, while operating as a supply ship, Aranui 5 features eight different guest decks with interiors that reflect the ship's Polynesian heritage.

Located in the dazzling blue waters between Tahiti and Easter Island, the tiny far-flung island of Pitcairn is thousands of kilometres from the nearest continent. Pitcairn is so isolated that it's only accessible by sea, and with all of the mod cons of Aranui 5, the ship offers a stylish and comfortable way to visit the island. Visit the grave of mutineer John Adams, hand feed the island's only Galapagos Tortoise, browse Pitcairn's local curio and craft market and walk to Christian's Cave, where Fletcher Christian watched for passing ships.
