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
Book your preferred restaurant asap since the guest numbers allowed to two small restaurants are limited. Take the island tours either with the cruise or outside venders to see the whole islands. Outside vendors are highly regulated.
If you dive, do dive with them. The dive staff is great and you leave the ship right from the aft watersports platform that drops down from the ship - VERY convenient!!!
Relax and enjoy
Make sure you are on the first tender to the private motu at Taha'a to make sure you get a chaise lounge int he front row and have the full day to enjoy the island!
Don't be afraid to book a lower category room . Size is all the same Unless you want a suite.
Try to get Level 8 Veranda Stateroom with Butler service. Very quiet and service is spontaneous.
Make reservations at specialty restaurants as soon as you board. Shore excursions are extra so do some research beforehand and maybe you can have an option. There is always something to eat so watch your diet.
Prepare to meet some really nice people and make new friends!
Use a different cruise line.
Plan water excursions in the morning when possible as it rains sometimes by afternoon.
The Waverunner around Bora Bora and the Tahaa Motu are our favorites.
Be sure not to miss the Cruzin Crew show. It was great.
Loved the Ta'ha motu and the day there was a really fun day of snorkeling, great food, & activities! We enjoyed that immensely!
Unless they improve, don't pay full price
This is a must-see!!!!
