Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2019

Interesting concept of a combo freighter/cruise ship sailing to beautiful and remote Pacific islands. Unfortunately, the sevice and execution was lacking.

Food: The food was okay but, except for two of the dinners, there was no variety and it is not recommended for those with special dietary needs. The table wine was okay.

Service: Poor. Our first impression was bad when the room keys did not work and it took maintenance to finally get us into our room. The person who escorted us to our cabin was quite rude on several occasions as were others working on the ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside

Small cabin with partially obstructed view out of window. Beds and pillows were not comfortable. Bath products and towels were cheap and the showed was tiny. The cabin was clean. A ceiling light's glass was broken, we told the front desk, but it was never fixed.
