About Papeete, Tahiti

The largest of the Society Islands in French Polynesia, Tahiti held a magical attraction for artist Paul Gauguin and writer Robert Louis Stevenson. To understand why, simply listen to the winds whistling through casuarina trees on a secluded black-sand beach, or stroll through beautiful botanical gardens and marvel at island flora.

Go to the day markets and the night food trucks. If you have the late night flight out, there is a restaurant just up the hill from the airport with a blue roof called Oceans that has great Chinese food with a local twist. It was delicious and a huge meal. We didn't do the hotel stay through the PG, but just checked our luggage at the airport for $9 per bag, and walked to the Intercontinental to spend the day there by the pool free of charge. The IC is pretty touristy but a pretty view of Moorea and a nicer place to spend the day than the airport.

I really did not care for Papeete. The area where the ship docks and surrounding store areas could be cleaner. There was really not much to buy unless you were in search of pearls. Most everything is very expensive and it is not a shoppers paradise. As for tours, not really much to see that I would consider interesting.

Consider an overnight to Moorea for a one-night stay in a thatched bungalow over the lagoon. Re-join the ship in Moorea. Although expensive, it was well worth the cost. Before our excursion, we explored the shops in town and saw the nearby landmarks.

We just relaxed at our hotel (Sofitel) for a short time before and after the cruise, so we can't really rate this port. The cruise line did not offer any shore excursions for "cruise-only" passengers, although we could have taken one through the hotel. The town is right by the dockside, so very convenient.
