    Nuku Hiva

    Awesome, thanks! At least now I know that it is an option. I'm just going to wait and see how energetic I'm feeling that day. :rolleyes:

    Nuku Hiva

    [quote name='MVPinBoynton']Rada628, I was wondering if you were referring to my review. The jeep didn't get stuck in a rut. It seemed more like there was a transmission problem.[/quote] You mentioned it briefly on your website. I guess some days Albert does land tours and other days lagoon tours. Oh well. I am determined that I am going to get brave and get in the water with the sharks! Is it feasable to take the ferry back over to Moorea on the last day(while docked in Papeete)? It seems like it should be easy enough. I am just wondering if it is too much to do a roundtrip and be back in time to leave for the airport?

    Nuku Hiva

    [quote name='MVPinBoynton']We used Claude when we visited Nuku Hiva. His guide Mary Jo was just wonderful. You can see lots of pics from our visit as well as a review of our Marquesas Tahitian Princes review on our website [URL="http://www.thepreismans.com"]www.thepreismans.com[/URL] . It is quite a beautiful and unspoiled island. Have a great time.[/quote] Actually, I had looked at your website before and it almost scared me away from Claude's tour!! Since you had a momentary issue with the 4x4, it got me to thinking about being stranded on a remote island like Nuku Hiva-----not my idea of a good time! But Claude emailed me and assured me that he works with Princess all the time and has never had an issue. So I decided to go with him instead of Princess. Off topic--I am soo disappointed that I cannot go on Albert's tour on Moorea! Your site made it look awesome! But he doesnt offer lagoon tours on the day of the week that I will be there. :(

    pictures! TP, 7/31-8/12

    When you book tours at the pier, what time do they leave? Do you need to be off the ship straight away? Or do they offer afternoon tours as well? Thanks

    For any of you familiar with "Anthony Bordain-No Reservations", next Monday's show is going to be about Tahiti.

    Would any of you happen to have Claude's email? The search funtion on this board is the pitts.

    Nuku Hiva

    Well now that you tell me that, I don't know what to do. I went ahead and booked with Princess after reading another couples review. Their 4x4 stalled and almost got stuck in a rut. They made it back to the ship, but that made me a little hesitant. Especially since Nuku HIva is so remote..... Thanks for the pic though. :D

    Teiva -- Having a hard time contacting

    I was starting to feel left out. :p I finally got an email today. She did quote the price in francs only.

    Teiva -- Having a hard time contacting

    I emailed them about a week or two ago and haven't received any reply either. If I don't hear anything by the end of August, I am just going to call.

    For those of you that have toured with Claude, does he take you to see the large tikis?

    Age barrier

    I was reading another thread concerning teenagers on board. The woman's son thought he was the only one on board. He approached the CD, the CD arranged a get together and turns out there were 30 teenagers on board. Next time I am on a cruise solo, maybe I will try this approach....couldn't hurt. Maybe the CD could arrange a special tea or coffee time for solos.

    Taha'a excursions

    I do think that it is ridiculous that the whole day tour is only $10 more than the half day, but it is still cheaper than the Princess snorkle. And it is a little longer, so I went ahead and booked it. I'll probably only be in FP once, so........ However, I definately wouldn't pay $170pp!!! Not even for a full day tour!! :eek:

    Age barrier

    You are not too old for anything that you find enjoyable. The ladies that I met on the cruise were waaaay past 50 and they were more active than I was on the cruise! They sang karaoke and went dancing every day. I didn't ask their ages, but I'd venture to guess that they were in their 60's and 70's. And you also shouldn't assume that all young people are swingers who are looking for a hook-up. Young people on a ship alone are looking for the same thing that you are----companionship, someone to have a conversation with. So, be open minded and you might find a new friend. :)

    I misread that, I was thinking that it was for 2 people. Surely it must be. I was thinking the $5 difference from my quote was due to the value of the dollar.
