Review of Aranui 5
MV Aranui 5 is a passenger/cargo ship which went into service on December 12, 2015 between Tahiti and Marquesas Islands. With Papeete, French Polynesia being its homeport, Aranui 5 replaced Aranui 3 that went into service in 2003. Aranui 5, just like its predecessor, is registered as a passenger vessel under the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), for international operation.
Aranui 5 was built in China and on November 9, 2015 arrived in Papeete, Tahiti. Apart from supplying cargo to the 6 ports in the Marquesas Islands, the ship also operates a passenger service and tourist cruise as part of a 14-day itinerary. Aranui 5 also stops at the islands of Takapoto and Rangiroa in Tuamotu Islands before returning on the 13th day to the famous Society Island of Bora Bora.
