2018 HAL world Cruise
Monday, January 22,2018
As we disembarked in Papeete, we were greeted with the local music and dance. But we didn’t stop to listen or take photos. We were headed to the Ferry Terminal next door where an Arementi high-speed catamaran was waiting to whisk us off to the enchanting Island of Moorea, often likened to James Michener’s mythological island of Bali Hai. A 30-minute ferry ride and $9.50/pp is all it took to reach the ferry dock in the small village of Vai’are where Jo from Jo’s Tours waited to drive us over to the InterContinental Hotel ($45.00 total cost.) There is only one road in Moorea and it circles the entire island. It took us less than 25 minutes to reach the hotel.
Next, I’m going to tell you all about our fabulous stay in an over-water bungalow at the Moorea InterContinental Hotel!
