Boat is too small to go to the Cook Islands. Nearly died on PG snorkeling trip

Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2017

Wanted to see French Polynesia and the Cook Islands.

Most people were sea sick going down to Cook Islands. Boat has too shallow draft and is too small for the large swells.

Excursions could have been much better. PG does not take care of safety enough on snorkel trips. Snorkel boat on another day engine would not run for more than a few minutes. Had to wait an hour for another boat.

Cabin Review

Cabin C

OK but got awakened each day by deck aboves shower. Nicely equipped but a piece of wood trim fell off on the first day. Closet space a bit limited. Nice bed. Had to get the sliding balcony door adjusted as wind was coming in. Good shower.
