Review summary

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!

Service and Staff

Our butler Shernan spoiled us rotten and our stewardess Carla decorated our stateroom with balloons and banners for my birthday! Mervin at the pool bar was a mind reader! He always remembered what we liked to drink and was very sweet. Our favorite restaurant, Le Grille had great service. Mark, the head waiter, always got us great tables and Jaypee was a very attentive waiter and always had a smile on his face!

Being on the 8th floor was nice because it was the floor with the pool and our favorite restaurant and bar. Very convenient.

Having a butler was so nice! We highly recommend it.

We bought some pearls at the Tahit Pearl Market and the staff was very friendly and not pushy at all.
