Moorea

The Wedding Island

Green, blue, azure, white. Moorea is an explosion of colours; when viewed from above, this volcanic island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean – separated from Tahiti by the “Sea of the Moon” – is a triangle that resembles a heart.

 

During this stop-over on the French Polynesia MSC World Cruise, you will be enchanted by Moorea’s crystal waters and extraordinary mountain peaks covered with emerald vegetation. A magical island, which over the years has been chosen by many couples from all over the world as the perfect place to get married.

Seeing the beauty of Moorea up close is a privilege. During the excursion organised by MSC Cruises, you can take a guided tour of the island, arriving at the top of Mount Tohivea to enjoy a breathtaking view of Cook’s Bay; you can also visit an archaeological site, where you can see the remains of Moorea’s marae and learn about the ancient Polynesian customs and ceremonies that were practiced in these sacred places.

Adventure enthusiasts can take part in a safari on board a 4x4, which will take you off the beaten track into a volcanic crater and to Moorea’s Tropical Garden, with its collection of exotic plants. Those who love the sea can put on a mask and flippers and dive into the lagoon off Opunohu Bay, Cook’s Bay’s twin, which is on the opposite side of Mount Rotui; here you can swim with stingrays and sharks and admire the corals and tropical fish. And afterwards, you can soak up the sun on the soft white sandy beach while eating Polynesian delicacies. Moorea is a fascinating destination that will enchant you; one of the destinations that will make your MSC cruise unforgettable.

French Polynesia

A place where people fell in love
A place where people fell in love

Located in the Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia consists of five archipelagos governed by France: the islands of Marquesas, Tuamotu, Gambier and Austral and the Society Islands. An earthly paradise with white sandy beaches, green headlands and blue azure waters. It is no surprise that European explorers Louis-Antoine de Bougainville and James Cook, who were the first to arrive here, both fell in love with the place so much that they recounted its beauty on their return to the Old Continent.

Word even reached writers of the caliber of Herman Melville and Robert Louis Stevenson, as well as the painter Paul Gauguin. The latter, after having stayed in Polynesia, left us with magnificent paintings that immortalise moments of life in this seemingly enchanted world.

The capital, Papeete, is located on the island of Tahiti: don’t miss the covered market. The colonial-style building embodies the colours and scents of Polynesia: exotic fruits and colourful flowers. But that’s not all you can find at the market; you can also buy local crafts, such as jewellery, sarongs, straw hats, made by the Vahine, the typical Polynesian women with long black hair, adorned with flower garlands.
