    Jacque, I read that tipping isn't really a thing here, but if you get exceptional service it is always appreciated. We haven't seen any tipping nor does it seem expected. We went on a dolphin/whale tour yesterday where we had an exceptional time as we got to get in the water to see a momma whale and her calf and there was no tipping there either. 


    I hope this helps.

    Hello again, 

    Sorry for the late entry. We are in cabin 104. We have some additional excursions booked including Coral Gardens (with WS) at Taha'a, diving with 6Passengers at Rangiroa, and the Circle Lagoon tour with pure snorkeling on the first day in Bora Bora. We are very excited, now that the packing is done! Looking forward to meeting all the roll call members!! Melissa & Denis Duhaime

    Hello from Seattle!


    We're in Cabin 225.  We'll plan to bring US dollars, and convert some either at LAX or Papeete Airport.  


    Silly question from a newbie here, but what is the appropriate gratuity or does the tour include gratuity?


    Staying overnight at the Intercontinental the night before we sail.

    I tried several times to find out whether Ato prefers to be paid in USD or XPF, but I only got a confirmation of our group of 8 for August 24th at 8:30am. Tim and I are thinking USD since his flyer quotes the price in dollars. Sorry I cannot be more specific. Based on our interactions with various tour operators, they seem to be fairly informal there.

    We are in 135.


    See you all soon!

    It just occurred to me that we may need to get in contact while aboard, and since there is no "Cruise Critic Party" like on larger lines, I put this together. If you will send me your Stateroom number, or if anyone else joins us, I'll add to the list. Also - any other excursions planned or contemplated?
