We have done a variation of this cruise before and are seniors so we knew we could enjoy this trip without worrying if we might miss something. It is a wonderful cruise and very friendly people on the Islands. Embarkation and disembarkation went well. We had a balcony suite which was just fine for us. Although we were on starboard I would book port if doing it again as the sun was alway on the port side. We did AnyTime dining which gave us options as to when to go for dinner. We sometimes ate up in the Lido deck for dinner if we wanted stay in shorts. We did one tour from the ship which was a whale watching tour. On Bora Bora we wore swimsuits to see if there was a bus or taxi that would take us to a beach. But when we got on shore we saw a sail and snorkel tour which was half the price of Princess Cruise tour at $70. It was a fantastic tour, we went around the Island and into the Lagoon. We made three stops to snorkel, two were in deeper water and one was waist deep. We swam with Black Tipped Sharks and Stingrays. All in all I would recommend this cruise, it is longer than most at 29 days. There were a lot of seniors and wheel chairs but everyone seem to treated well.

It suited our needs and we had an excellent cabin steward. Don't know the cabin category.
