Great Travel Memories   
May 2014

Tahiti, Cook IS, Tonga and Fiji

Pros: Staff, destinations, food, the smaller ship, great lecturers on board and how organized everybody was on the ship. It was a real plus to have free drinks of all kinds and to have the gratuities pre-paid.
Cons: The only negative was some upholstery in the cabins and out on the back of the pool deck needed to be replaced, The other comment that kept coming up was that all clients felt thet the inter-net charges should be absorbed into the cost of the cruise instead of being charged for separately. With the service being rather slow, we did not feel that it was cost effective.
