we were also on this cruise. We used UA from SFO and French Bee (low cost French airline - relatively new) back to SFO. We were worried about Fr bee but it was fine, brand new plane and nice service. You pay for meals, luggage and seat assignments. the early reviews were horrid but they have improved greatly. In Moorea we stayed 2 nts at Manava Beach Resort (formerly Pearl resort) . Very nice and several restaurants and shops off the property within walking distance. Again all private tours in the islands- arrange early. We only made a few shows - some we had previously seen and too tired other nights from the early tendering / tour departures. I rate the entertainment just fair (no surprise to past passengers) except the night a native group who were very good came onboard in Nuku Hiva.
