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!

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

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!!!

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.

I wanted to point out that all my pre-cruise went through my AMAZING travel agent, Mayra Silveira (cruises dot com). She was so attentive! We had a great time!

Prepare to meet some really nice people and make new friends!

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.

Try to get Level 8 Veranda Stateroom with Butler service. Very quiet and service is spontaneous.
