Just returned from this Cruise, highly recommend it. We had a balcony-very worth the extra money. The Islands are unbelievably beautiful, the ship is lovely, clean, friendly staff. I love the smaller ship as you get to know people more easily and see them more often. The excursions were very good. My only negative is the food. It is the worst of any cruise I have been on.
Especially the early part of the cruise. I tried the beef dishes, Prime Rib, steak and they were tender but the taste was not good, Tried it several time and then avoided the beef and did better. They should have the ice cream bar open longer as it sounds so good after returning to the ship. We were not able to get to Roratonga because of the high sees, we saw an emergency off load of a crew member and there is NO way I would have wanted to try to board a tender. Getting to and from is a LONG day going and even longer coming back but would I do it again Absolutely!
