Setting sail from Hanga Roa (Easter Island)

The enigmatic moai statues of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) remain one of the world's most intriguing archaeological mysteries. Descendants of the Polynesian settlers who carved them still live here, though these days the island belongs to Chile, despite being separated from the mainland by over 2,000 miles of Pacific Ocean.

Arriving in Papeete

If you are in search of paradise, don't expect it to be easy to get there! It's a long old haul to get to Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia. And once you are there, Papeete itself is by no means the most magical spot - you need to venture forth to see the other islands, and luxuriate in the turquoise lagoons, white sand beaches fringed with palm trees, rugged mountain peaks and coral reefs. Expensive and remote, these islands have maintained their uncommercial magic, with excellent hotels and a warm Polynesian welcome everywhere you go.

Our tip

Don’t bother with local currency – all the local shops and markets will take US dollars. And take aqua shoes, impossible to walk in the sea otherwise.

The Ship

Your home from home

Caledonian Sky at sea
Suite on Caledonian Sky
Caledonian Sky sundeck

One of Noble Caledonia’s flagships, Caledonian Sky is more akin to a country hotel than a big cruise ship.

What we love

Formerly known as the Hebridean Spirit, the MS Caledonian Sky has exceptionally spacious suites with a traditional feel created by the wooden panelling and brass features. The grand yet comfortable Lounge and Restaurant contrast with the modern furnishings on the Sun Deck but all combine to make a wonderful home from home on a usually in-depth and fascinating itinerary.
