PAPE'ETE, Tahiti, French Polynesia (January 1, 2002 – Radio Australia)---The Pape'ete Appeals Court has ruled that two Renaissance cruise ships stranded in Tahiti since September 26 -- following the company’s financial crisis and the cessation of services -- must remain in Pape'ete Harbor.

The Pape'ete Port Authority wanted the two ships, the R3 and R4, to be moved to the Leeward Islands because of congestion in the Papeete port area.

But Tahitian creditors fear that they will not recover the money Renaissance owes them if the ships leave Tahiti.
