Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2013
Cabin:

An interesting cruise for less than US$100 per night for 34 nights (obstructed view cabin). Ft. Lauderdale-Panama Canal-Limon (Puerto Rico)-Guajaquil (Ecuador) - Lima (Peru) - Easter Island (Chile) - Pitcairn (British) - Papeete (Tahiti) - Auckland (N.Z.) - Burnie (Tasmania) - Sydney (Australia).

Taxi from Fort Lauderdale airport to ship is US$20. The only problem is the free shuttle dumps you at a different terminal to yours.

A clean ship built for 700 pax. max. and because of the low number of passengers on board a friendly atmosphere develops and one gets to know the different nationalities and passengers meet on the same tables in the restaurants and get to know one another.

Cabin Review

Cabin G

Obstructed view cabin, quiet location, air-conditioning and toilet problems were fixed promptly.

Port Reviews

Lima

What you can do in Lima (port is Callao) depends on if you have a full day in port or one afternoon and morning. We had two half days and the following is recommended:

1. Gold museum (Museo de oro) - a must see with all its pre-Columbian art.

2. Larco Herrera Museum and Indian Market - very interesting museum, also contains an erotic section of statues "guaranteeing" fertility in the next life and left in the grave.

3. A full day can get you to the Pachacamac Inca Ruins, however, read the reviews as a lot of sections are closed and the dust may turn you off.

4. At the wharf enjoy the free Wifi at the Peruvian market as the ships internet is very dear and very flakey and shop for souvenirs there.
