Sail French Polynesia aboard the luxurious tall ship Star Flyer 7 nights, April 27 - May 4, 2008 Sailing has a very long trad ition in French Polynesia, beginning with the original Polynesians, who navigated as far as New Zealand and Hawaii, perhaps even to South America, in quest of new lands. Then there were the explorers, Bougainville, Wallis, Cook, and writers and artists like Melville, Maugham, Michener and of course, Paul Gauguin, whose color-saturated canvases became the icon of the Polynesian myth. In keeping with this revered sailing heritage, Star Flyer will be the first modem-day tall ship to make its home year-round in French Polynesia, voyaging to the legendary Society Islands, the home of Polynesian cultural traditions. Star Flyer offers voyagers rewarding personal explorations of islands. As she glides through these pristine archipelagos of unsurpassed loveliness, she will leave no sign of her passage. Experience the romance of the Golden Age of sail on board this 360 foot luxury Mega Yacht with 85 beautifully designed staterooms, elegant dining room, piano bar, outdoor Tropical Bar and two swimming pools.
