M/V Aranui 5 is a dual passenger/cargo vessel that entered service 12 December 2015 between Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands. With a homeport of Papeete, French Polynesia, the Aranui 5 replaced the Aranui 3 which entered service in 2003. The Aranui 5, like its predecessor, is registered as a passenger ship under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), for international operation.

Apart from supplying cargo to the six ports in the Marquesas Islands, Aranui 5 also operates a passenger service and tourist cruise as part of its 14-day itinerary. It also stops at the islands of Rangiroa and Fakarava in the Tuamotu Islands before returning on its 13th day to Bora Bora in the Society Islands.

I didn't realise there was still a market for these.  Wasn't the last RMS ship just withdrawn from the Falklands or somewhere remote like that this year (same combination)?

It looks a bit weird.  Normal front half with a fugly back half -cut and shut of a cruise liner front and back (superstructure) grafted onto a regular small hatcher bow.  Amazing how they re-introduce curved plates and lines these days -still not pretty!
