Sail Date: Apr 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Big plus--It offered more time at sea and visited ports on our "bucket list".

This trip has lots of high points and some that were rather mediocre. The service was excellent and we became on a first name basis with our waiter and assistant waiter, Anil and Diana (Liying). They were a delight. Our cabin attendant, Butu, was also very friendly and kept surprising us with towel animals. The service aboard ship from all the crew was exceptional.

As this was our 4th cruise we can only compare the entertainment with the others we experienced and this was by far the best. The comedians, jugglers, bar music, singers, dancers, and crew shows were outstanding. Our favorite shows were headlined by Contempo, two extremely talented singers from Australia. Wow!, they were amazing. Coming in at second place was everyone else, (however, one was a very distant second) almost all, very professional. Steve Davis and his staff deserve a lot of credit for keeping us entertained.

Cabin E1

Roomy, lots of storage space. Clean and well maintained.

Port Reviews

Tahiti (Papeete)

Bus ride around Tahiti. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Several brief stops. Tahiti did not meet my expectations of a beautiful white sandy beach paradise. Poverty and substandard housing detract from the image I had.


First encounter with black tip sharks swimming nearby. Rays were numerous, so it was a pretty good.
