Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2023

July 15, 2023 sailing from Papeete to Marquesas, on deck 9 starboard in Superior Deluxe room: great. Breakfast buffet, 12 or 12:30 lunch, 7 or 7:30pm dinner. 97 passengers (very much less than capacity) about 65% French speaking and 35% English/Deutch.


Food was wonderful, fixed menus but well prepared and interesting. Red or white wine at lunch/dinner, and changes from one to other were usually accommodated (one needs to REALLY like wine to appreciate Malbec.....).

Cabin Review

King sized bed with comfortable mattress, plenty of storage, nice balcony with table and 2 chairs. Plenty of electrical outlets but could have used a small bedside table on both sides (it only had one) for nighttime phone charging.
