Princess cruises made our first cruise experience so perfect that we're already thinking of doing it again. Everything was so systematically done from the embarkation to the disembarkation day. We really had a hassle-free vacation but what we loved most was the warmth and kindness of the ship's crew members. Everyone made us feel so comfortable while maintaining a high level of professionalism. They are so quick and efficient too and the food was always very good.
There were just enough activities so no one gets bored.
The ship is a little old but very well maintained and we loved the classy ancient look of the interior, it was like being taken back in time.
The cabin was clean and spacious but perhaps they could clean the air-conditioning filter more often, I seem to sneeze a lot when we're in the cabin...or the carpet could be the culprit.
We live in Tahiti and we pretty know the island. Its mountains and valleys are beautiful.
Moorea's rich marine life, beautiful white sand public beaches and magnificent ocean views from the top always make you wanna come back.
We spent our day at the very beautiful public beach called Matira, there's a snack there where we got our ice cold local beers. It's about a 15 minute ride from where the ship anchors. It was breathtakingly beautiful!
In Raiatea, one way to appreciate the island's beauty is to do a short trekking to Mt. Tapioi. It takes about an hour climb and from the top you'll have an amazing view of the lagoon and you'll see the islands of Huahine, Bora-Bora and Maupiti.
