Great cabin. Perfect position on the hump, large balcony. Easy to get anywhere easily as close to stairs and lifts but on the quiet side. Very soundproof, no noise issue ever.
Port and Shore Excursions
T was actually Picton NZ but not a choice to rate here. Did a tour on Na Clachan to the wineries and it only cost $60 each, not including lunch. This included wineries and was great. Www.naclachan.co.nz
Our friends went on a to
We paid a taxi driver $100 to drive us around the island which was OK. Is a very exclusive place and you don't see much but the water is gorgeous every shade of blue. We spent the afternoon at the main beach swimming with the cruise passengers. We walked down a dirt road past local houses and found paradise, our own private beach and we could swim under and around the resort bungalows. Beautiful
Disembarked here for 10 days. Great holiday but stayed at the Beachcomber which I wouldn't recommend except for it's central location.
Great markets. Took the shuttle to black rock and swam with turtles, beautiful. Swam all day and returned to ship for shower then went back to town for dinner. Beautiul port. We saw dolphins and a whale from the ship..
We hired a taxi. For half a day cost $150 forr our group and he showed us everything the bus trips from the ship for about the same cost each. The driver dropped us a private beach for free and here we swam with about 20 French tourists, and hired a tinny ($60 hour) to drive out a small distance to swim with and hand feed reef sharks and sting rays. All the ships tours were out here doing that too at a high cost. fantastic. I loved Moorea.
