Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Concierge Class 3

We decided on cruising back home from Honolulu but would not do it again, we had 11 days at sea and apart from Tahiti it was about the only time to swim or sun bake.

We were over welled by the bar prices some drinks nearly double of other cruise lines, and water & coffee or juice laughable. Needless to say we only enjoyed a drink at happy hour where the prices came back to what we normally pay.

The food was very repetitive and quite boring.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 3

The cabin was spacious, bathroom very good and balcony great, but for the extra money charged would not recommend it over a balcony cabin, embarkation went well although a huge line, disembarkation was chaos, people were off before cases were down in the area for collection

Port Reviews

Tahiti (Papeete)

We chose to take a local bus and go across to the other side, also walked around local market

Bora Bora

We took the tender off and took in the local market and shops

Moorea

Took tender off and visited local market

Auckland

We had friends pick us up and take us out for the day, enjoyed our day with them

Bay of Islands

We tendered off and loved the Bay of Islands we thought this was the best stop and would certainly return a lot to do on shore
