The Cruise From Hell

Review for Tere Moana to Caribbean - All

User Avatar

We booked an 8 day cruise on the Tere Moana, Mar. 11-19, beginning in Colon, Panama and ending in St. Maarten. On the first day we were notified that we would not be sailing until the next day to allow the swells to diminish from Colon to Cartagena. We were also told we wouldn't be stopping in Les Saintes due to losing a day of travel. The swells didn't get smaller, so we sailed anyway. After ...

We boarded the Tere Moana in Venice for a 7 night cruise to Croatia. This was a our 3rd cruise on this ship and by far this was the most enjoyable. The Captain Rajko Zupan with the assistance of his crew planned a Reunion Cruise that was second to none. The itienary changed a few times to allow some very interesting adventures during the cruise. One example was diverting to a small mountain ...

Very Mediocre, and not worth the money at all.

We went on this cruise with several people following our favorite Troprock singer. Our group had 71 people in it. That part we enjoyed immensely. The Captain and crew were friendly, except for the European gal at the customer desk (of all places). The boat has newer carpet and such, but is still somewhat tired. Our cabin was mildew smelling, and had veneer off several doors and pieces of ...

Tere Moana 12/6-12/13, 2014 Colon to Puerto Caldera This was our first time on the Tere Moana after having sailed on the other ship in the fleet, the Paul Gauguin, twice in the French Polynesians (2006 and New Year's 2007/08). We had been seeking out a Panama Canal Transit cruise for many years, and it seemed that each and every cruise line we were interested in, the Transit itinerary was 14+ ...

Happy Plunge

I've been looking at this ship for months, and finally took the plunge! The ship is small and the crew fantastic! You don't take a ship like this to play dice, watch magicians or shake your money-maker. The crew has multiple talents, and you'll see the piano player handing out snorkel equip and the purser singing a tune. The cruise is laid back, friendly, yummy and comfy. The stateroom was ...

We just disembarked and are spending 2 nights in San Jose before flying home. We booked the particular cruise quite some time ago because of the price and transiting the Panama Canal. I had read all the reviews since our booking and was somewhat disturbed by the negative reviews in the beginning but as time went on the reviews started to get better. Let me say at the outset that overall we had an ...

A Great Cruise with Fun People

I think it is important to provide a frame of reference for a review. We are not big cruisers but that being said, I favorite vacation was a Paul Gauguin south Pacific cruise. We are not Caribbean people but normally head to the south seas when we want beach time. We are also go with the flow type of people. We took this cruise for the Panama Canal. I will try and compare the Tere Moana to the PG ...

My Dream trip: A cruise to the Greek Isles aboard the Tere Moana

Review for Tere Moana to Greece

This is a very thorough review because part of taking on a destination Cruise involves all the little details you may not think to prepare for especially when traveling to a foreign country. I spent months researching and preparing for this cruise. Our travel agent had wanted to save us on the length of time we would be flying by having us on a flight that landed in Istanbul Turkey at 5pm because ...

Solid Small Ship Cruising; Fabulous Crew

When you travel on the Tere Moana you come to feel like you are traveling with family. Everyone from the Captain to the waitpeople to the housekeeping group to those whom you never see work together as an incredible team with the sole purpose of ensuring all guests are made to feel at home and comfortable. We especially saw this when we had some difficult landings. We did not experience the air ...

I've read the previous reviews of this ship and will not repeat the positive remarks as I agree with all from staterooms to dining and ports. We are looking forward to another future sailing! We are avid cruisers but usually on larger ships. This was a new experience and a very pleasant surprise, primarily due the people on board! At first I thought it was the crew to guest ratio. That does make ...
