One of the hottest travel destinations on the planet is, without a doubt, Tahiti. There’s something about this beautiful island, which is a part of French Polynesia, that manages to capture the imaginations of people all over the world. As such, it’s home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and some of the world’s most lusted after sightseeing opportunities.
While you could simply book a hotel stay on the exotic island, this isn’t the very best way to experience everything that Tahiti has to offer. Instead, you should consider cruising Tahiti. Doing so allows you to experience things about this island that few travelers get the chance to, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to discover and explore other nearby travel destinations.
There are, to be sure, a number of different options when it comes to cruising Tahiti. However, not all of those options are created equally! Below, we’re going to review what we believe are the three best options for cruising Tahiti. Each offers a different experience, and one is sure to appeal to the particular way that you like to travel (and also to the needs of your particular budget). Let’s take a look!
1. Radiance of the Seas
While the new Quantum-class ships are garnering plenty of praise, the Radiance of the Seas is wowing passengers year round.
In addition to seeing Tahiti aboard this beautiful ship, the Radiance’s 18-day transpacific itinerary also stops in New Zealand!
But, when you’re in Tahiti you’ll definitely want to get involved in the Papeete excursion, which will take you on a beautiful safari.
Why this ship? Well, adults are sure to appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the Solarium pool area. (No kids allowed!)
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a little excitement to go with your libations, you can check out the self-leveling pool tables at the Bombay Billiards Room.
Looking for the best accommodations that the ship has to offer? Then accept no substitute for the beautiful Royal Suite.
Not ready to spend that much money? No problem! Standard fares for the 18-day trip start at just a hair over $2,000 per person!
