  • Destination: the South Pacific

This was a wonderful cruise. My husband, self and three children 17,19, 21 loved every minute of this cruise. We have cruise the Meditteran and Asia and this was the best. The ship was top notch with superb service and anything you could want. This cruise is an active cruise which we loved. Everyday you were snorkeling, scuba diving with sharks, stingrays, and millions of fish. We had been in Australia before and scuba dived and snorkeled from Cairns and this was just as good and even better because here we swam with the sharks and stingrays.

There was 4 x 4 tours of the islands we stopped at, or jet skiing, ATVing, shopping etc. We did it all. The private Island was wonderful and even though we only had really two sunny days the rainy mist didn't dampen anything. We still had a wonderful time. The meals and food was excellent. You never wanted for anything. The staff were all so helpful and knowledgeable. The cleaning staff superior.

This is definitely a trip every should do from young to old. We had 80's year olds on our 4 x 4 trip and they loved it. Only negative I would have to say is that the nightly entertainment was at 9:30 pm and we were always to tied to make it down for it. Would have love it around 8:30 would have been perfect. We ended up watching an in room movie most nights and sleeping early for the exciting next day.

Cabin Review

Cabin was perfect. So clean and very sophisticated and well appointed. Kids had a room with large window which was excellent also. Cleaning staff went over and above keeping everything clean and tidy. Very hard workers.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Was excellent and the locals were so informative and entertaining. Thanks for sharing your land with us.

Beautiful views, worth getting to see the whole Island

This was an experience of a life time. Don't think anything can top this. Was a bit scary but the guides know exactly what to do to make it perfect.

Bora Bora

Rented scooters off the pier and drove around the island stopping where we wanted was so much fun. Only one road around the island so you can't get lost.


Had fun driving the ATV's in the mountains. Views were fabulous and this was our favorite Island. Jet skies were fun even though the ocean was a bit wavy and we had a nice picnic were a stingray came for a visit.
