French Polynesian Escape

Luscious lagoons and Tahitian feasts await in French Polynesia, an almost mythical land that for centuries was accessible only to the hardiest of sailors. Today, aboard the Oceania Regatta write your own ‘Tales of the South Pacific’ from the comfort of a state-of-the-art ship as you visit pristine islands including Mo’orea, Nuku Hiva and of course, Bora Bora. While much has changed since the opening up of this magical region, some things remain the same: the gorgeous white-sand beaches, the delicious traditional cuisine, and the longing of the human heart to discover what hidden wonders and unexplored mysteries reside in this exotic corner of the world.
