Legends to Lagoons
Settle into laid-back island life as you encounter the South Pacific’s pristine beaches and glistening lagoons cruising aboard the luxurious Regatta. Spend a day exploring Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia in the tropical paradise of Tahiti. The island’s volcanic peaks overlook lush rain forest, black-sand beaches, and cascading waterfalls. Sail to verdant Moorea, and take in the colors of this paradise—the greens of the volcanically-formed cliffs, the blues of the still-watered lagoons, and the white blossoms of the small tiare flower. Fakarava, the following port, is home to many rare plant and animal species, quaint villages, and old coral churches. In Nuku Hiva, you can see the tallest waterfall in the world, Cascade Vaipo, before continuing to Rangiroa where marine life is abundant. Spend two days in Bora Bora, known as the most romantic island in the world. Before ending the cruise back in Papeete, stop and spend two days in Raiatea, an island dotted with vanilla plantations.
