Sail Date: May 2017
Cabin: Ocean View

Good deal on single room price to a destination I had never been before.

Getting there was a challenge. Flight from Minneapolis was 2 hours late. Had to change terminals in Los Angeles and since changing carriers too, no help with luggage which was difficult for me with bad legs. In international terminal, nobody knew anything about Air Tahiti. Had to drag bags around for an hour before finding check in desk at the far end of terminal. Air Tahiti was 4 hours late too, so got into Tahiti in middle of night and all I ever saw of first stop, Tahiti itself, was from headlights on old shuttle bus from airport to pier

When boarding, exhausted, they first hearded us into showroom for an abbreviated lifeboat drill, never did figure out where lifeboat station was. Flopped in bed way after midnight and Tahiti itself was long gone out of site by the time I woke upnext morning.

Ocean View

Clean and quiet, but very small. Tiny shower, no shelf space in bathroom. Not enough space for my clothes and I was traveling alone.
