  1. 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.
  2. we had bourbon and rum with no problem in October on marina. We also use wineskins - never had a broken bottle.
  3. really enjoyed your reviews. We've done the long 14 day PG cruises - to Fiji and the other one ended in New Zealand. Best snorkeling ever in Vavau, Tonga and Cook Is are wonderful too.!! We are going in Feb 2019 on Oceania to see Fakarava and Nuku Hiva. - a much larger ship but it is the itinerary we want and the dates fit for our 50th anniversary. My daughter lived on Branham & Pearl and then moved across the street from Leigh HS in Los Gatos. We are up there all the time so I know the area well.
  4. we also used Hakau in 2012 - best snorkeling EVER
  5. how much did you usually tip on the snorkel trips -and to each helper or just the head person?
  6. great review with so much information. any contact email for Richard Deane in Nuku Hiva ? His website seems to be down.
  7. reservations open at midnight Miami time so calculate when to log in depending on where you live. Concierge level should still have choices if you are flexible.
