After a tiresome flight to Honolulu we thouroughly enjoyed the 4 days there,the highlight for me was Pearl Harbour.

Boarding the ship for the cruise back to Sydney we first noticed how well appointed our cabin was,it had a reasonable sized balcony and was well set out,plenty of room.The evening entertainment was the Schooner Bar for us,however we felt that nightlife for the 35 to 55 yo age group was sadly lacking,other than the Schooner Bar(Long live Adult Day Care at Night).There was very little in the way of dance music to be had unless you liked classical dance music or the curent "duff duff"stuff,other than that the showroom entertainment was okay.The biggest night onboard was 70's night,which we had heard about so we went prepared and had a ball.All 4 of us looked a right site and we certainly drew some comments,at one stage we found ourselves part of the show,but it was all in good fun.

The last 3 days was not so flash weather wise,but that is fairly common More whenever we have come into Sydney,we always seem to cop the bad weather(just lucky i guess)

Also regarding drinks,they are very reasonable,Bourbon&coke $5.50 and most cocktails $7.00

Very enjoyable holiday,cruise staff were faultless,would certainly cruise again with this line. Less

Cabin review: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Port and Shore Excursions


A nice location,and probably the pick of them all for shark and ray snorkel tours,also a second tour around the island is advised with a stop in at "Bloody Marys" a must do


Much nicer port to visit,again we did a snorkel tour here...as a point of interest as well for anyone looking at doing snorkelling over there,most tours do not provide fins(flippers) and the other equipment is only average,so having your own gear is highly recommended. We also hired a car and drove around the island $85 for 4 hours was okay and it sure beat walking in the heat.

Too similar to Noumea for my taste,however we did do a snorkel tour here.The chap who took us out was telling us how he had been doing tours for so long and how he was behind most of the tour companies on the island so we should have complete confidence in him.,anyway when he took the boat to the snorkel area he threw the anchor over the side,it probably might have been better if he had a rope attached to it though,so he spent the next 10 minutes under water trying to find the anchor,there were reef sharks and rays in the area,the sharks kept there distance but the rays came up close,it was a good day.


Actually the island was Papette,very little here as we were only there for 4 hours,but was very well presented very clean and tidy
