Airport and Cruise ship transfers.
I have pre and post cruise loding in downtown Papeete. Will need transfers from Airport to hotel - hotel to cruise ship - cruise ship to hotel - hotel to airport.
Some of the price quotes received for transfers are ridiculous. What are efficient economical ways to get from airport to downtown papeete and back, and also downtown papeete to princess cruise ship dock.
RE: Airport and Cruise ship transfers.
the taxi costs around $30 ,i know its expensive ,but everything is in tahiti !the trip is only about 10 mins ,if your arriving during the day you can get 'le truck'(local wooden bus) from outside the airport,you see these everywhere,just get on and pay afterwards. from the airport its about $2. try changing some dollars into pacific francs then you will get the best deal ,as everyone has different exchange rates 1although you can pay for everything in us $ !there is also a coach that ferries passengers to and from the airport to ship,contact princess for that !
Travel Tips for Papeete
People use having tiare flower at their ears and there is a meaning.
A woman with a flower at left side means she is engaged and on right side means she is free.
Equal for men BUT the flower must be facing back.
Men who put the flower like a woman means to be looking for man.
You can see flower anywhere, among the street, at restaurant and ... at public toilette too.
"A pleasant surprise"
I had heard horrible things said about Papeete and was prepared for the worst. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find it was not half as bad as purported.
it's a city, it's not a Polynesian postcard or a resort
Its very expensive and service is not particularly good
Easy to get around
Lots of shops and restaurants

The busy, bustling town of Papeete, on Tahiti's north coast, is the capital of French Polynesia.
The town still has the provincial charm of a French colonial capital - whitewashed houses, buildings of painted wood with large verandahs and corrugated tin roofs, narrow street, parks and an outdoor market.
