The island of Huahine is a destination port for Windstar Cruises, Paul Gauguin and Oceania Cruise excursions.  Part of the Society islands, Huahine was once home to Tahitian royalty and is known as the Garden Island for its rich green color and foliage. Arriving on the island you can see rich hues of green everywhere with the sun filtering light into the deeper parts of the foliage. The island has only 6000 inhabitants and has a standard ring road for getting around the island. 

Travel to Malta for a destination that will satisfy your wanderlust for ancient civilizations, intricate architecture and a culture rich with history.  Malta, located in the Mediterranean Sea, just south of Sicily and north of Africa, is actually an archipelago of three islands.  Besides Malta, there is Gozo and Comino, both smaller than the main island but with their own rich and ancient history and epic scenery. It has a long history spanning centuries of colonial occupation, from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and France to Britain in more recent times.
