We had been to the South Pacific 4 times before. We love the blue water and the friendly people. My husband wanted to go back again, but I wanted to do something different. So when we saw to ad for the Aranui 5 we decided to give it a try. We had a wonderful time. The people are very proud of their villages and want to share what they have. They can not wait for you to get off the ship and say hello. The Aranui 5 was only 6 months old when we went aboard. We had a nice large room on deck 7, the pool deck. We enjoy all the excursions that we went on. The only thing that I had a problem with, was it can be a little noisy at dinner time because everyone wants to talk about what they did during the day. We enjoy the ship so much that we have booked it for their maiden trip to the Pitcairn Islands in January 2019.
Great big room with a balcony.
