Great trip!

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

My husband & I along with 2 other couples went on our first Oceania cruise to the South Pacific, also for the first time. We LOVED it! It is one of the most beautiful places on the planet with vibrant colors & pristine waters. We all enjoyed Marina's food & service but found the entertainment disappointing & the excursions outrageously overpriced. I booked all our activities online prior to leaving with the exception of Fakarava which was an itinerary change, but I booked that online from our cabin. We also declined their transfers from airport to port & return as that was also extremely expensive. We did appreciate being able to board as soon as we arrived at about 5:30am after a very long travelling day. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip but, when we are ready for another cruise in a few years, we will look at different cruise lines.

**Note** We want to commend the crews of the tenders for the amazing job they did during very harrowing & More dangerous disembarkations in Rarotonga due to heavy swells. They risked life & limb to ensure the safety of all the guests! Less
