The stateroom was very comfortable, the service was excellent and the excursions were awesome. We swam with rays and sharks in the Lagoonairium in Moorea. We didn't book this through the ship but we learned about it on trip advisor. We saved a lot on the taxi (we used Teva Taxi) and were treated to a very good tour of the island on the way there and back. We rented a waverunner for 3 hours in Bora Bora. Fantastic!
This is an complete cruise package, including meals, non-premium alcohol and gratuities. Excursions were reasonably priced. Our stateroom had a problem with toilet flushing, but it was manageable. The staff are very attentive. On-board medical facilities are limited and any serious problem must be handled "on-shore." Embarkation began at 3 PM, with nowhere to wait if arriving early.
We have done 18 cruises. This cruise is fantastic.
All crews are so helpful.......restaurant waiters, housekeepers, concierge, tender boats, bar tenders, name them all.
Food are excellent.
Programs are super.
Art and craft classes are marvelous.

Must do... everything except the excursions was included & that is such a plus!!
Having a butler was so nice! We highly recommend it.
The embarkation time is 3PM for the cruise took. E, and earlier arrivals had no place to wait. This could be a problem in rainy weather. Alcohol, except for premium brands, is included in the price, as is all food, regardless of restaurant. Evening dress is shoes, collared shirt/trousers for men
