Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2009

We flew from Denver to Los Angeles a day early because of a winter storm predicted for Denver the next day - and it arrived. Got to LAX early and to wait all day for our midnight flight to Papeete. COuld not check luggage until much later in the day, so our vacation began with wearing us out. The flight from LA to Papeete was gruesome in coach - our last internation flight in coach.

We had a transfer to the port, which got us there about 5:30 AM. We could not board until near noon. It was hot and humid in Papeete. We walked around, some, and got some water, and napped on a park bench. It was wonderful to finally board the Pacific Princess and air conditioning!

We had an overnight in Papeete, so explored the ship and relaxed. The next day we walked around Papeete. Very interresting city and it was fun to see new things. We got back to the ship just before the afternoon rain and we glad that we decided to go back to the ship. Set sail and were accompanies by local in outriggers to the breakwater - neat.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was on deck 8. It had a queen bed, desk, couch, a table and two chairs and a balcony. It was comfortable and served our purposes very well. We did like the additional room of a mini-suite.
