Definitely Not a 5 Star Experience

Review for Paul Gauguin to South Pacific

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have just finished the Paul Gauguin 7 day Society Islands cruise. It was a very disappointing experience for many reasons. Firstly, the ship is old, and although the public areas have had a tasteful refit, the cabins, and specifically the bathrooms are dreadful. Replacing a shower curtain over a bath with a static glass panel, so that you have to lean right in to turn on and adjust the water ...

Seven Day French Polynesian Cruise

Review for Paul Gauguin to South Pacific

Seven day French Polynesian cruise with 300+ passengers October 29-November 5, 2022. Be aware the cruise is only six days (seven nights) which is too short for the travel time and expense to French Polynesia. Plan to book island stays for a week before or after the cruise. Our favorite resort was “Le Taha’a” a 50 bungalow resort on a motu accessible only by the resort boat off the west shore of ...

The excellence of this experience is the result of the combination of superior service on all staff levels, exceptional dining, quality cabins and the many adventures you may partake all while visiting the most idyllic island and oceanic scenery. The following are included at no additional expense: - A Deck Party night means your meal will be provided under the stars as you dine on a lavish ...

This was a dream destination for us, postponed twice due to covid travel. The size of the ship is good for this area. Only 230 passengers so excellent service. And spends longer in this area than the big ships. The crew are all amazing, very quickly know your names. Nothing too much trouble. Food was excellent . We especially liked The Grill and dining by the pool in Bora Bora was ...

This ship does not seem to have a lot of recent reviews so I will leave one. We did the 10-day Tuamoto cruise coupled with the regular 7-day Society Islands (Bora Bora etc.) cruise, so we were on the ship for 17 days in total. Another 20 or so of our fellow cruisers did the same thing, so we got to know a number of people during our time on-board. We really enjoyed the itinerary, the crew, the ...

We were so excited to go on this cruise as it was our first family vacation in over 4 years. We have cruised several times before and have always had a positive experience. This was the first time we had gone on a cruise with Norwegian, but we had heard so many good things about this cruise line I didn't expect all the issues we had! This was the first time I have travelled internationally ...

We used the NCL Promotional Air - Most everyone had to as there are only two scheduled flights to Tahiti per day. They got us to LAX then had 3 maybe 4 charter flights to Tahiti. Lucky for us we were on one of the latter flights that was maybe 2/3 full so we could spread out. The seats in the economy section of the “Air Tahiti Nui” Airbus A310 were most uncomfortable. We arrived with no ...

Excellent service on the ship. Small ship, not too many people, this is good. Too many giant screens, not necessary at all especially when listening to a band playing music. The band Hotwire is excellent, if you want to dance. Disappointed that all communication are in English only. On other companies it is in multiple languages. Food was just ok. Japanese and Italian restaurants ...

Excellent Ports of Call, Mundane Days at Sea

Review for Norwegian Spirit to Hawaii

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Chose this cruise for the unique opportunity to see both French Polynesia and Hawaii, and the ports of call did not disappoint. What did disappoint was the lack of effort and variety that comprised activities while at sea. With 4 straight days at sea, we were hoping for a full option of things to do, but the daily itinerary was pretty much recycled from one day to the next. There were not a lot of ...

We chose this cruise firstly for the itinerary but also for the ship. We have been on the Spirit before and were looking forward to seeing the ship refitted. We were not disappointed, even though one of the entertainment areas was still being refitted. The new atrium was a great place to have trivia and other games and it was a nice comfortable spot for a coffee or something stronger. The new ...
