Over priced and food terrible

Aranui 5 Cruise Review by coastcashier

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: the South Pacific

The price was considerable compared to the value. The food was always cold with only one choice smothered in French creamy Sauces. Plaster was the only offering six days in a row. Eggs were not available every second day. The Scranbled eggs was like sloppy porridge..

The Marquaseas offered no Swimming or Snorkeling opportunities. The Islands were dry and Barron and uninteresting.

The staff were very patronising to the point of rudeness when asked for something different. Asked for Playing Cards and received a pack with multiple of one cards and deficient others.

We sat in an open area on the Veranda for dinner one night and were asked to move because the French wanted our spot out of the wind. We refused to move and the next night the staff refused to serve us at dinner. When we complained the Supervisor sided with the stars. Surprise surprise.

Avoid at all cost. Take Windstar Wind Spirit instead. We have done it twice and it’s amazing.
