The main reasons we chose this itinerary are the two days in Easter Island, and the really good food! We were on Marina last winter, and it's a lovely ship.

Hello. This is my first cruise critic post and hope it is appropriate. Apologies if not. You seem to be the only post my Oceania search. Would you be interested in joining or organizing a private excursion on Easter Island? Hubby and I are certainly gay friendly. Many folks on Azamara organized private tours via Cruise Critic last year and they seemed much more interesting and better value than ship choices. Thanks.
We have established tours on Fakarava, Bora Bora and Eater Isle.
Do you recommend any tours on Pitcairn and Robinson Crusoe Isles?

Greetings--Do you know if there is any more space on Tours A&B; I seem to be late in finding this board! How much are the tours?

We have already booked and put down a deposit with Easter Island Spirit. We opted to take their two-day tour, and you are most welcome to join us if you like! When a cruise ship is in port, they try to limit the size of their groups to 18. The owner sent us a list of tours they are offering specifically when Marina is in port, and I will attempt to attach the PDF file if you care to have a look. You can read general details of their tour offerings on their website, easterislandspirit(dot)com
Also, there is an active message thread for this cruise, in the Roll Call section. You should check it out, as many of our fellow passengers have booked tours as well, and you may get some ideas for Fakarava and Bora Bora.

We look forward to meeting you in December!

Looking forward to sharing cruise news/views/cocktails. We're still sorting out Easter Island touring and are contemplating renting a jeep and having a DIY tour since EI Spirit is full for our cruise dates.

Hi Norm and Ron:
We are renting a 4x4 jeep for the second day. Still waiting to hear from Aku Aku tour company for full day tour. If we don't then we might the jeep for both days. We are even contemplating staying a night off the ship to catch sunrise but not sure where the sun will rise (in relation to the big heads) and if the weather will permit.
