Sail Date: Jan 2014
Cabin:

Thought to write a review on our second trip on this boat to Vanuatu and Noumea on Jan 30th 2014.This 11 night trip only provided one of the stops we were hoping for out of 5 as there was rough weather off some ports and we were rediverted to Fiji and Port Denerau..We missed Vila which we liked and Lifou,and whilst we would not recommend Fiji(suva) it was brilliant to be woken(even at 6.45 am) to the sound of the police marching band parading along the dock to welcome the boat.Prices in this port unbelievably high from clothing to alcohol.

Port Denerau is a delight and for an $8 fee you could ride the Bula bus along the coastal area to see the resorts built on the beach.Cruisers are welcome to swim in their pools and we had a nice day there.

My favourite Isle of Pines is ALWAYS perfect with powdery sands (not coral where you need reef shoes)

Cabin Review

CABINS-Comfy,love the affordable extended balcony rooms (one of the few boats that have so many at reasonable fare).If you spend the bit extra we'd highly recommend-great for sunning ,drying clothes etc .For those who want to know -there is no usb in side of the tv and viewing is very limited programming ,not that you come on a cruise for that.Cabin steward Ketut (and others) do a marvellous job,fresh towels ,perfect service always.Bit annoying how robe doors open on the bathroom door but a minor thing.Lots of storage for clothes etc .
