Not Great-nor very good!

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Tahiti (Papeete)

Not as good as we had heard. Have cruised several times from Carnival to Seabourn. Landed in Papeete 5:45 AM. Got to ship to leave luggage at 7:30AM. Brochure stated that as we were Penthouse level we could board at 11AM and our cabin would be ready for us then. WRONG.

Very tired and hung out on ship all day-couldn't buy anything as they wouldn't let us check in-had buffet lunch. Were permitted to check in at 4 PM - 5 hours from what they said in info pack and 8+ hours after being onboard. (They were NOT going to let us on ship till 1 but I insisted and got on at 10 or so

---concierge at ramp said early boarding did NOT apply to Papeete--where was it going to apply??? .

Cost of tours was outrageous and wine and liquor pricing more expensive than good restaurants on land.

Many passengers were on trip from alumni associations in Midwest universities. "Country Club Casual" went out the window as did feminine shapeliness other than moderately obese and More above.

Seabourn is Seabourn. Less
