Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2022

As we had not cruised for some years because of Covid, we desired to revist Noumea and Port Vila.

The ship whilst old was in good shape, apart from some blocked toilets and non-functioning elevators.

The food was average, and the menus weren't changed daily as has been the case on every other cruise line with which we have sailed.

Cabin Review

cabin was clean and tidy and kept that way by Kanikai and Putri, who were very efficient.

Port Reviews

Port Vila

Went ashore briefly for some shopping. The town was dirty and tired looking.
