Papeete is the capital of French Polynesia, and sits on the island of Tahiti. A Papeete cruise means making the most of everything the stunning South Pacific has to offer. A Tahiti cruise from Australia will put you among some amazingly rich culture, and some very friendly locals. Enjoy the stunning churches and the thriving centre of the city. The Robert Wan Pearl Museum is a must-see for a Papeete cruise, as is the famous municipal market. Swim in the crystal-clear waters, stroll the sandy beaches, and hike the rugged mountains.
