This was our first international trip since February 2020. We had actually booked this cruise for November of 2020 but of course it was canceled and we were able to rebook for early December 2021. We didn't feel we would be comfortable on a large cruise ship with 3600 plus passengers. The Star Breeze has a capacity of 312 passengers. Our cruise had 125 passengers so my wife and I felt very comfortable on this ship as social distancing was not a problem. All passengers wore their masks while in doors, unless you were eating or drinking. It was easy to social distance on the pool deck during large activities. Enough talk about masks and social distancing.

We thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The staff was so nice and always helpful. Our location was the Tahitian islands so we were in paradise. The food was excellent and there was a nice variety. There were several speciality restaurants on board that required reservations. Our cabin was spacious and very well maintained by our cabinet steward. The entertainment venues were small but they were appropriately sized. There is no casino, which was a nice for a change. The entertainment was not quite what we are used to but the performers were all very talented and the musicians were excellent. The ship offered a nice variety of excursions

In the aft section of the ship on deck 3 there is a very nice marine activity section. You can swim right off the stern of the ship. There is a trampoline, kayaks and other things to do in the water.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Suite

Our cabin was very spacious and comfortable. There was a sitting area, a walk in closet, a bathroom with a shower and twin sinks and a huge window. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows

Bora Bora

We overnighted at Bora Bora. On day 1 we did an island tour which was very nice. There was a driver and also a guide so he was able to talk to us during the entire excursion about Bora Bora. On day 2 we went on a snorkeling excursion with reef sharks and stingrays, then beautiful coral with tropical fish. I very much enjoyed both excursions

Raiatea

We went on a motorized outrigger canoe to visit a freshwater river followed by swimming at a small Motu. Very enjoyable. Our guide was a local man with most of his body tattooed which showed the story of his life and culture.
