Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

Much more relaxing than our typical cruise. We are usually taking lengthy and or strenuous excursions in every port of call, but on this itinerary there is not a lot to do besides snorkeling (excellent!), island tours, and the like. Not even much shopping near the port at some of the stops. All in all, a VERY relaxing vacation.

All the snorkeling we did was great fun, from the "drift snorkel: trip to the "swimming with rays and sharks" at Bora Bora. The highlight was a jetski excursion all the way around Bora Bora (not a ship-sponsored tour).

This is the smallest ship we have cruised on to date, and enjoyed the smaller size very much - didn't really miss anything except for a lack of many common areas to relax or use as meeting spots.

Cabin was fine. Larger than standard balcony room, but otherwise unexceptional.
