We wanted to visit Hawaii and French Polynesia and the time fit in with our schedule. I am writing in Papeete Tahiti Airport, for a flight that doesn’t leave for 10 hours. Oceania Cruise Line arranged this wonderful itinerary prior to our cruise from San Diego to Tahiti, November 1 to 19, 2017. My wife and I are seasoned cruisers having 24 cruises under our belts, 3 with Oceania. On this ...

Unfortunate "inconvenience"

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

We chose this cruise because of the 8 ports scheduled and the area. Due to a power failure we were tugged back to Oahu in the middle of the night, no lights, no toilets, and we were evacuated to the 9th deck in our pajamas and jackets for 4 hours. We were stuck in Oahu for 3 days while the ship was "fixed". There was a fire on board during that time with no explanation given. 3 ports were ...

We found what we believed to be and should have been a once in a lifetime 18 day paradise cruise to the South Pacific. It was an anniversary so we went big and purchased a Vista Suite. Left from San Diego on Nov 1 for a wonderful 5 day cruise aboard the Regatta to Honolulu. Schedule was one day on Honolulu, then to Kauai for a day, Maui for most of a day, a 4 day cruise to Farakova then to ...

This cruise was to celebrate our 50th anniversary and we had always wanted to travel to Tahiti and French Polynesia, plus the stops in Hawaii were also of interest. We have been to Hawaii before and were looking forward to Maui as we have some favorite spots there we wanted to visit, plus had never been to Kauai. This was the unfortunate cruise that lost power and sat in Honolulu for ...

We chose this cruise because we love long lazy relocation cruises. This one did not disappoint us. San Diego is a great port and we explored the city over five days, prior to departure. Embarkation and disembarkation were seamless and effortless. The Maasdam is an old ship, but has been maintained well. Our verandah cabin on deck ten was large, with plenty of storage and handy to the stern ...

Fabulous Itinerary...Tired Run Down Ship

I took this cruise because I wanted to see parts of Australia I hadn’t seen previously and this itinerary fit the bill. I thoroughly enjoyed the ports of call and the shore excursions were among the best I’ve ever had. What brings down the overall rating of the cruise is the ship itself. The ship has maintenance issues that impacted my cabin in a major way. My cabin is in the back of the ship ...

MAASDAM – SOUTH PACIFIC CROSSING – 27 Sept to 21 Oct 2017 Embarkation and disembarkation: We arrived at the dock at around 11.30 a.m. and we were in our cabin within 20 minutes which was just incredible. Everything was so smooth and organised thanks to completion of all documentation on line prior to the cruise. Service was smooth and efficient and we were not entitled to any priority ...

We chose this cruise for the Itinerary. 3-Star cruise, 5-Star itinerary with fun on the Polynesian Islands. We cruise often, usually long cruises. We are active retirees, swim, hike the jungle, snorkel, cliff jump, motorcycles. We enjoy 'Happy Hour' and socializing with like-minded cruisers. Very rarely we use Ship's Port Tours on HAL as they cater to a very sedentary clientele. Yes, I can see why ...
