I always wanted to visit French Polynesia and this turned out to be an excellent way to see Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, and Samoa. We also got to visit Hawaii again. We had a wonderful time from start-to-finish with no complaints at all. Everything was great - food, service, ports, and the ship. We always book a mini-suite mid-ship or near mid-ship aft. Love having all the extra room, and a comfortable sofa, and a larger bathroom and balcony. Candido kept our cabin spotless. Really enjoyed the Crown Grill (went twice as the Filet Mignon was out of this world) and Share's six-course-dinner was divine. Ate most of our breakfasts and dinners in the main dining room, but went occasionally to the breakfast buffet. It was always good, but we preferred the great service in the main dining rooms. We're avid theatergoers and felt the entertainment was very good. We only booked three excursions during the 28 day trip, as we prefer planning and doing our own thing in port. We rented cars on Bora Bora and Tahiti, which worked out perfectly and was actually less expensive than excursions that can be crowded and rushed. We felt this cruise was worth EVERY single penny!

Wonderful Cruise!

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB D523
Wonderful! Very near the main elevators so walking anywhere on the ship was easy. Quiet cabin with very little movement. Clean and in good repair.
