I've been looking at this ship for months, and finally took the plunge! The ship is small and the crew fantastic! You don't take a ship like this to play dice, watch magicians or shake your money-maker. The crew has multiple talents, and ... Read more

I think it is important to provide a frame of reference for a review. We are not big cruisers but that being said, I favorite vacation was a Paul Gauguin south Pacific cruise. We are not Caribbean people but normally head to the south seas ... Read more

This review covers a cruise on the m/s Tere Moana from December 7-14, 2013. This was a round trip from St. Maarten. Summary: The Tere Moana’s size creates too many compromises to be worth the micro-ship “experience”. The ... Read more

My husband planned this cruise for a milestone wedding anniversary. I was concerned because of the small size of the ship and the fact that it had so few reviews. As frequently happens in life, things turn out much more pleasant than my ... Read more
