Cie Polynesienne de Transport Maritime travel42 Professional Line Review

The French Polynesian island chains of the Marquesas and Tuomotus are just the ticket for sea travelers in search of an adventure and a comfortable conveyance. The Compagnie Polynesienne de Transport Maritime began providing regular freight and passenger links in 1959 using ships named Aranui ("great highway" in Maori).
