Travel to Tahiti on a Cruise: No Honeymoon Required

Tahiti cultural travel

4. French Polynesian Culture Travels with You

You might think that being on a ship means you wouldn’t be as close to the islands’ culture. However, Windstar has doubled down on cultural experiences that travel with you on the ship.

Pearl, our French Polynesian cultural ambassador, is part of the crew organizing events such as Tahitian dance and language lessons, crafts, a Ukulele performance, and more. She was so lovely, always socializing with guests when she wasn’t entertaining them with her ukulele skills and singing. She grew up in Tahiti and was a super person to talk to when you had questions about Tahiti!

In addition, the ship holds special events each sailing that bring other local groups on the ship in certain locations to teach travelers how to make a lei, tie a pareo, and enjoy Tahitian music and dancing. Windstar also has an immersive cultural even in Bora Bora on a motu (private island) where guests enjoy an al fresco dinner with traditional foods, live music and local fire dancers lighting up the night.

The culinary team purchased fresh fish from local fishermen when we were in port, so we got the freshest local catches as we cruised between islands at night.

Finally – the ship is filled with local Tahitian art, and each night, our beds would be turned down with a little local gift from the islands, like oils, candies, and more.

There is no lack of culture on this Tahiti cruise!
