Compagnie Polynésienne de Transport Maritime’s Aranui 3 Video and New Aranui 5


 I found this great video on Compagnie Polynésienne de Transport Maritime’s Aranui 3. The ship is a freighter with modest passenger accommodations. The experience is more along the lines of a freighter cruise opposed to the luxury and amenities of cruise ships. The video had some great views of the ship, local flair and natural beauty of the South Pacific.

Compagnie Polynésienne de Transport Maritime’s has ordered a second ship, the Aranui 5. The Aranui 5 is currently under construction in China and expected to be delivered in 2014. There have been significant delays at the shipyard so the vessel may be delayed further. The new ship is expected to be larger, with more extensive passenger accommodations and amenities.

Regardless these cruises seems to offer extensive exposure to local South Pacific Culture, people and vistas on a working freighter.
