The Expedition Experience

Infinite shades of azure. Secluded atolls. The sultry perfume of Tiare Tahiti (gardenia). To this day French Polynesia and the South Pacific conjure up the romantic notions brought back by the legendary European explorers who discovered it hundreds of years ago. We’ve been exploring the “Pearl of the Pacific” since the 1980s and our South Pacific cruise experience is key to helping you truly "get lost" in this tropical paradise.
