You can find private excursions, look at the Pacific Islands board here on CC, the Paul Gauguin CC board, or the roll-call section for the PG or Oceania (which also does Tahiti.) There's lots of the...

Ships didn't used to be full all the time. Especially for several years after 9/11, they had trouble persuading people to travel. So they just lowered the fares via special deals. Those were the...

I agree with everyone that La Reserve is wonderful, but you don't have to eat every bite that is served to you, nor do you have to drink seven glasses of wine. The wine can be tasted and sipped; the...

Have you thought about the Paul Gauguin as an alternative? It's a wonderful little ship, and they are island specialists.

Stay in LA overnight if you can. And stay overnight in Tahiti as well. You will enjoy the cruise so much more!

I can't imagine Sweden Finland or Norway wanting or accepting Euros--just a guess. Lithuania, probably.

Your best bet is to call the cruiseline and ask. There perhaps is some remote corner of the deck where this is permitted. But in the interests of your fellow pax, please be considerate if you do...

Laid back is what we want, so that's good!

(I've never stayed in an OWB, and really haven't wanted to. Our beach bungalow at the now defunct Manihi Pearl was the best room ever.)

I remember seeing the Haumana and thinking what a terrific experience that would be!

Always wanted to do the Aranui, but it hasn't turned out that way so far. Perhaps we'll do it yet.

Wow, that is something to consider, isn't it? I remember being on the PG once at Easter and there was a very large Princess ship anchored in Bora Bora. That one was quite enough.

Just be aware that on Regent, that price would include business air, for the Master Suite, but would be a significant upcharge on Riviera, which may obviate most of the cost difference.

Do look again at the Paul Gauguin. It is a wonderful experience, one that Oceania will not be able to duplicate (although O is a great cruise line.)

Thanks Canuck, for the advice about Moorea. We're going back for our 5th visit this September, but will be doing a pre-cruise on Moorea for the first time, so I value your advice about ferries, etc....

We've also anchored in both bays, and really you never know. But the taxi drivers will know, and you will see the ship as you drive. The Oponohu Bay dock is, as someone said, about 5 minutes from...

I would have to dissent on this. Gentlemen often do not wear sports coats on this, or other Regent ships. It is never required, but always acceptable of course, just not that common. Alaska is...

Start by getting cold water into the stain as quickly as possible, if you haven't done that already, and if it's washable. The rest is voodoo, as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps just wash the stain...

I don't think it would be the "facilities" that would slow you down, but the size of the ship, i.e., the number of pax and number of tenders.
