French Polynesia Gets Festive: Celebrate the Holidays in Tahiti

Most of us have a tried and true holiday routine, but this year, why not throw your traditions to the wind and spend the holidays in paradise? On the gorgeous island of Tahiti, you’ll find a surprising amount of festive cheer to compliment the beaches and palm trees.

The city of Papeete gets a makeover for their Downtown Christmas festival. This festival runs from mid- to late-December.

The waterfront, city hall, and main boulevard are decked out in illuminations. Shop windows are transformed with festive decorations. Visitors and locals alike can shop in the Christmas Market next to the cathedral, and there is even a mini-Christmas parade through downtown.

While it may only be spring, it’s not too early to plan ahead for the holidays. If you’d like an escape this Christmas from the cold weather and the stress of hosting guests, consider celebrating aboard Paul Gauguin Cruises. Sail through the South Pacific and let someone else take care of the food, accommodations, and transportation – all you have to do is pack your bags!

Paul Gauguin Cruises offers four December sailings to choose from, 7-night Tahiti & Society Islands voyages that leave roundtrip from Papeete. Talk to your Stellar Travel today to reserve your family’s spot on-board!
