We chose this cruise because of the amazing comments and the itinerary. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. We were greeted by an extraordinary team who immediately made us feel so welcome. Check in was very quick and our luggage was immediately delivered to our cabin. We were on deck 6 which was the perfect location. The food and service were amazing. The crew knew our name and what we like to eat and drink the second day we were on board. Everybody was so nice, from the Gauguins and Gauguines to the waiters and concierge.
We never had to wait in any restaurants. Shows were beautiful and so entertaining. Shore excursions were well organized and a lot of fun. Cabins are very clean and spacious. Our concierge April Jane always made sure we had everything we needed. The ship is a perfect size for people like us who like personalized service and a quiet place to rest, have great drinks and enjoy the scenery. Ports of calls were excellent choices with different things to do on each island (we really enjoyed the barbecue on the private motu on Tahaa, and the wonderful swim on the amazing beach on the motu in Bora Bora). We really enjoyed the music and songs by the Gauguins and Gauguines, as well as the visit on board by Polynesian women who taught us how to make the flower necklaces and heis and leis. This was for us the vacation of a lifetime. We will definitely go back.
Lagoon and Polynesian Feast: Great swin with the sharks, stingrays and tropical fish. Polynesian feast and view were amazing.
