Review summary

There were a lot of sea days but there was always something to do. Bora Bora was the highlight of the whole cruise. It is an amazing place where pictures do not do justice. It is some of the most beautiful water in the world. In spite of not being able to dock in Pago Pago and Apia it was the trip of a lifetime for us. They substituted the big island of Hawaii for those two ports. It was nice but disappointing because we had been to Hilo and Kona before.
