  1. At the end of the day, WS will still be ahead. Companies can put that in their losses column but eventually they will gain a lot more. Customer retention. This is what people want. Good job WS.
  2. Yep, still there. WS did the right thing with the guest. I'm sure they are happy with the outcome and will try again soon. No chance to take with crew and passengers. But Madeira is not a bad place to be stuck :-)
  3. They have the Aranui 5 now and are working an a new one. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/21461-deal-signed-for-new-aranui-6-as-details-emerge.html

  9. Good day, Day One: We took a taxi to Matira Beach in the morning and we told the driver to come back in 3 hours to bring us to Bloody Mary's. He came back about 1h30 later to bring us back to the pier in Vaitape. We got to the pier before dinner. You can arrange that at the pier in the morning with a driver. Day Two. Took a private Combo tour ( https://boraboraexplorer.com/tours/motu-island-4x4-trip/) around the island in the AM. Just before lunch were were brougth to a small Motu a few distance awa from Matira for a polynesian lunch. We stayed a few hours and they brought us back to the ship with ample time to change and get ready for the short trip to the festivities on the private motu. We did not spend the day at the motu. There a few restaurant and beach bar at Matira.
  10. Us too, the Private Island dinner was on the second night. Just in case, we planned our Motu lunch on the first day so not to interfere if WS had a change of plan. We were covered both ways. We had lunch at Bloody Marys on the second day (had to try this place). We had fun, did not spend big $$$ (had burger and a few drinks). We enjoyed it. I would put pictures up but it would spoils all the fun. have a great time.
  11. Agree with Ducklite. You can browse this week flyer from Carrefour to give you an idea of prices for groceries and everyday items. https://en.calameo.com/read/004508499613b727b35c9?page=1
  12. And maybe, maybe, keep fare a wee bit more accessible for canadian !
  13. UPDATE: According to a message received from the Carrefour store in Papeete "The sale of alcohol in Polynesia is regulated: sale authorized until 20h from Monday to Saturday and until 12h on Sunday" Cheers Daniel
  14. La Cave de Tahiti : Closed on Sunday Carrefour : Open on Sunday http://www.carrefour.pf/ Champion : Open on Sunday http://www.championtahiti.com/ (don't know if they have restriction on selling alcohol on Sunday)
