Review summary

The cruise was excellent except for a few minor glitches.  As usual, the food was wonderful., the staff were well trained and most hospitable.  My only negative comments had to do with most of the nightly shows.  In most cases, the production numbers were tired and trite.  The comedians were not funny.  At the end of the cruise, however, the talent improved greatly.  The Las Vegas singers,  the violinist were wonderful.  However, my biggest complaint is with the conclusion of the cruise.  We had to get off at 9 A.M.  WE had arrived at Tahiti the previous night, way too late for a tour.  Most planes didn't leave until midnight the day we arrived.  We learned about our flights about 6 weeks before we left.  We then had to make plans for our day in Tahiti.  WE decided to take a tour, and then go to the guides home to rest before being taken to the airport.  This was expensive, but necessary.  Those who opted for the cruises plans either stayed in an unairconditioned town hall. or a hotel that refused to let them use the pool.  Not a great way to conclude a trip.  Better planning is necessary, and giving people options about the last day earlier would have been helpful.

Better speakers. We were on an Oceania in which a retired music teacher performed and lectured. It was wonderful
