Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

An amazing experience, given that Pam and Nathan were in the vicinity. We were very fortunate to have a great captain (Capt. Peter Bos), who kept us all informed of the risks and dangers of Cyclone Pam. We had to abandon one port, (Port Vila), pick up another (Isle des Pins), and were not able to access another, due to cyclone's wave damage to a pier.

Our stateroom was always very clean and tidy, and nothing was too much trouble for our room stewards.

We were still able to participate in shipboard activities, shopping, presentations, shows etc., given that we gained an extra sea day due to the Cyclone.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

A very comfortable room for the two of us We used the verandah many times - even saw whales from there!.Parts of the external railing are starting to need repair though.
