FOCUS is on Tahiti
"Tahiti, where love
lives"—from the lush green mountains to the crystal clear
warm lagoon waters, the islands are truly romantic and appealing.
Their rhythmic grace is both joyous and tranquil. A
favorite Tahitian expression is Haere Maru—"take it
easy." It isn't difficult to set your internal clock to
Island Time and adopt that lifestyle.
Even the name is magical. Tahiti,
or more accurately, the Society Islands are a dream destination.
Until recently, the islands of French Polynesia were simply too
pricey to consider unless you were a film star or could dip into a
trust fund. Tahiti has a well-deserved reputation for being
expensive. Hotels, particularly those featuring over water
bungalows, can run eight hundred dollars a night and up without
All that has changed for cruise
passengers. With the advent of several intimate ships calling
Papeete their homeport, exploring these South Pacific pearls is a
delight that won't break your vacation budget.
Alluring, mystical, and utterly
tranquil, come along to explore Tahiti and meet her people. Plan
your vacation, using Cruise Diva's cruise reviews, ports of call
descriptions, recommended reading, and links to paradise.
