Aranui Makes Slight Itinerary Change

The 207-passenger-freighter Aranui III will make 16 voyages throughout the South Pacific in 2006, with some minor adjustments to the previous itinerary. Formerly 16 days and 15 nights, the trip will now be 15 days and 14 nights, with a morning departure from Papeete, Tahiti. Rather than stopping at the Tuamotu atoll of Takapoto on the way to the Marquesas, Aranui III will now stop for the day in Fakarava. On the return trip, the ship puts in at Rangiroa rather than Fakarava. The complete 2006 schedule and itinerary are now available on the web site [www.Aranui.com]. The company encourages prospective passengers to book through travel agents.
