We tried this ship based on recommendations of friends, and we are very pleased that we did. The 14 day cruise took in the highlights of French Polynesia as well as a stop in The Cook Islands. Most of the ports required tenders into the pier but on all but one occasion this was a flawless process. In the Cook Islands we encountered some large swells and winds but the crew remained focussed on safety and after a delay and bumpy trip everyone was safely on board.
The food in the Main Restaurant and all of the speciality restaurants was exceptional, and so much so that we have booked another back to back cruise next year on the same ship, on the same level in the same category of suite.
Our butler and cabin stewards were exceptional and really made this a very enjoyable experience.
We used the spa, took onshore excursions and culinary classes and all of these met the high standards we came to expect from the Marina.
Needless to say we rated this as one of the best experiences we have had.
