Radiance of the Seas
Sail date: September 20, 2019
Moorea, French Polynesia
i thought it was a relaxing port. i did scuba diving here but booked on my own since the ship did not offer it. i think you had to drive to get to any of the beach area. the island did not have a ton to do and i don't think there was a downtown area.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
beautiful island. i went scuba diving but not through the ship as it wasn't offered. you had to take a bus for $5 to get to the beach which wasn't too far away.
i did pearl harbor on my own because it is free to go there. i stayed in a hotel outside of the area the night before the ship boarded.
Picton, New Zealand
loved picton! i did an excursion but not through the ship. paid $60 instead of $200 to rent bikes and go winery hopping. so fun! a bus picked us up from the ship and took us back. very nice little town with a small shopping area.
sydney just plain rocked. stayed here for 4 days after the ship dropped us off and the cruise ended. did all excursions on my own. stayed in chinatown, got an opel card to use for the trains, busses and ferrys which were super easy to use to get around town. went to the taranga zoo, did the bridge climb, did a tour of sydney opera house, went to manly and bondi beach and did some hiking in the blue mountains.
i loved tahiti and wish the stay had been longer. i went scuba diving but could not do it through the ship since it wasn't offered so i booked on my own. it was nice being docked and being able to go off and on the ship. it was easy to walk around the town since it was right there.
Wellington, New Zealand
this was a fun city to visit and easy to get around. we did a tour excursion but not through the ship since it was cheaper. we drove around the town, went to the botanical gardens, went to mt. victoria and rode the cable car. then we did some brewery hopping. there are stations around the town to take you back to the cruise ship.

The drink package is worth it.
