On This Day . . .
We docked in the town of Papeete on the island of Tahiti on January 23, 2016. We would be here overnight but would leave at 5:30 am the next morning. The ship docks literally in town as can be seen by the Craft Market image. We just strolled through the town winding up at the local market called Le Marche where goods from produce and fish to handicrafts, clothing and handmade flower leis were sold. In the evening the culinary department on the ship had a Polynesian BBQ complete with suckling pig. Later that night we were treated to Tahiti Ora, a local Polynesian dance group.
