Cabin: Mid-Ship Inside

We just completed a B2B Hawaii <-> Tahiti cruise, and everything was perfect! No kidding. The food was great, the specialty restaurants were outstanding, the entertainers were fantastic, our cabin was perfect, the itinerary was beautiful, and the Wi-Fi actually worked! We did not partake in any of the ship's excursions, but our own excursions on every island were fantastic. The islands are beautiful beyond belief, and the islanders are the friendliest ever encountered. Even the huge Pacific Ocean behaved, and we had sunny weather every day. The newly refurbished ship is beautiful, and the crew was the best.

We did not participate in any of the daytime activities on the ship, so we cannot report on them. Nor did we use the Casino or spend any time in drinking in the bars or using the pools. So we cannot report on any of that. We did use the dining rooms, gym, theatre, observation lounge, walking tracks, etc. We very much enjoyed the company of the fellow cruisers that we met and dined with. My wife entered only one contest (the Gem Trivia Contest) which she won, so she was happy with that.

Our recommendation: if you can, take this cruise! You will not regret it!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

We had two inside cabins on deck 11, because we had to change cabins on the turnaround. Both were perfect for our needs. The second one was a "sideways cabin", which turned out to be about on foot longer and 2 feet wider than our previous cabin on the same deck, but it was missing a chair and small table which would have interfered with the door on the sidewall. Despite the missing furniture, we liked the larger cabin slightly better.
