The Marquesas is newly built, she has been designed with comfort in mind, and the hospitable and lively team of Polynesians, most of them Marquesas, will ensure that your journey on a working ship is one to remember.

Cabins: Dates in 2015 are now open for booking, so be quick to secure your cabin on what can only be described as a trip of a lifetime to the most exotic and remote place on earth!

Activities: The beauty of these islands is unequal - natural wonders abound as 1000-foot waterfalls cascade down sheer volcanic cliffs, stunning white sandy beaches are backed by towering mountains that disappear into the clouds. Their isolation has created an immense pride among the people and a fascinating culture; the language is unique to Tahiti, as the lilting Marquesan dialect is traced directly to the ancient Polynesian tongue of Maohi. The most famous of the Marquesas residents was the post-impressionist painter Paul Gauguin, who created some of his most famous work while living here and his tombstone can be visited in the cemetery on Hiva Oa.

Fares: Prices start for the 14 days cruise from $5855 per person sharing a cabin.
