French Polynesia by MMurrah

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Leadership on this ship was bad. Captain is arrogant and had zero personality. Hotel direct Florin was the exception. He was absolutely all in and did a fabulous job. If there was a problem he fixed it, then followed up with us to let us know what had been done. Best ship hotel director ever! Best room stewards ever! Food? Here’s a shocker for you: on a 24 day French Polynesia cruise where everywhere you stop is lush with bananas and coconuts... you can’t get EITHER on board!!! About 10 days into the cruise I asked why and was told by the food and beverage director that the ship buys NOTHING from any of the places we visit!! That ALL THEIR FOOD, 100%, comes from the US because one time they had a problem with food purchased elsewhere. So this cruise left from Singapore, then took on more passengers in Brisbane, then more in Auckland. And all our food was from the US! So zero bananas for us. That was a problem for MANY passengers. I asked the food and beverage director why we couldn’t have some tropical fruit sorbets like coconut and was told they buy them all from the US also and don’t make them. He was insulted when I asked! But confirmed that they don’t. This was my first (and last) Holland America cruise. I’ll stick with Celebrity and NCL thank you very much. No problems with either.

Easter Island spectacular!! Great island cruise but not to return to same locations on same cruise. by rhulgan

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We loved some of the small islands, Easter Island and Peru...but disliked when we returned to some of the islands again to fulfill the 48 days.... repeating itineraries. Tahiti was not a great island !

Easter Island and more by dsquare

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The overall itinerary was fantastic, with Easter Island being the main drawing card. The stops in Costa Rica were disappointing because of road blockages most of the excursions were cancelled. The voyage southward toward the equator was rather cool with overcast skies in large part but when the ship got to Easter Island the weather turned great and remained so for the rest of the voyage. The captain made a great decision on the way to Easter Island by changing course to avoid a storm which made the voyage more comfortable and gave us great weather for visiting the Island. The voyage to and through French Polynesia was great.

The Lido deck was always a great place to eat.

On port/tour days its much faster to eat on the Lido deck than wait in dining room for fine dining
