My husband and i took this special cruise to french polynesia for my 60th birthday celebrations. We had a wonderful time and the service was good however it was not impeccable nor outstanding. I was expecting a cleaner cabin 227 hence found carpet was delapidated and our attendant was not accomadating since we had to ask for basic toiletries on our first day and ice cube! In addition we bought a laundry package and unfortunately they lost my husband shorts! The worse shore package was anapearl farm with snorkeling! We were driven with a van for 15 mins and arrived at a docking station where summer our anapearl hostess tooked 19 of us to her pearl farm via a small boat. We arrived at the pearl farm in the middle of the ocean and she explained the process of pearl farming which was interesting but failed miserably in allowing us to snorkel to observe the oyster bed pearl process under water due to the fact an unscheduled 6person guest visitors pop in hence summer was unable to complete our snorkeling tour. We all felt summer was interested in selling her mediocre pearls instead of filling her tour contract!!! Would high not take purchase this excursion and i have complained to kuba (cruise director) hence future customer would be missed lead. Lastly the food quality: The breakfast buffet was good but not spectacular hence could use improvement with better variety of tropical fruits abundant in fp and better quality bakery which i found the croissants to be stale. Dinner was good overall but lack substance innovation lack luster especially the “james beard” signature plate was horrible!!! In addition, the pastry chef serve 6 of us in our table for my birthday celebration with an unrise flat soufle! There was no explanation or worse no apologies or offer a substitution!!!
