A Private all day or half day snorkel. Max 8 per high speed boat Fakarava: http://www.fakarava-divelodge.com/contact-fakarava.html fakaravaexplorer@hotmail.com Ato Lissant
  2. How does seat selection work when booking direct with ATN? When I go on line it looks like I have to confirm a reservation and then call back for a seat assignment. Where can you see the upcharge for bulkhead seats. In your numerous trips how full are the ATN flights normally? Thanks, Greg
  3. Yes we have, last two trips to FP. Agree a really nice place and SOOOO convenient.
  4. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away when we used to fly from LAX to PPT to cruise FP we have flown ATN and had very good experiences. Has anyone flown the Air France/Delta non-stops LAX -PPT; and, if so, how was it? The only reason I'm considering the AF flight is that it is a bit cheaper and it arrives in PPT at 0610 the day our ship boards at 1300 and sails at 2300. That gives us time for our adult kids (French Polynesian first timers) to see the Market and such in Papeete and then get on the ship. The ATN flight costs more and gets in at 2230 the night before necessitating an over
  5. If the pricing works for you I'd suggest a C1 (Deluxe OV)on deck 4 and amidship. We've got about 35 days on R ships in a C1. They are a slight bi bigger than the D (165sqft -vs- 143sqft) plus the "ledge by the window does offer storage or at least a place to put stuff (snorkel gear, reading material, excursion tickets, etc). What's really nice is that you're only one deck below the Barrista station outside the GDR and I could easily run up for a couple of double flat whites in the AM for DH and me 😉 . Greg
  6. This site: Oceania Cruises Remodeling Every Stateroom on Their Four Cruise Ships (cruisefever.net) indicates Nautica was scheduled for upgrade to OceaniaNext program in June of 2020. I can't find any videos showing this upgrade. We were on Insignia in the fall of 2019 (post refit) and we really liked the upgrades. One slight surprise was that the walls of the cabins are no longer magnetic. We normally take small magnets with us to post things (lists, itinerary, menus, etc) on the walls...can't do that in many places any more. You can find videos of Si

  10. https://www.onesourcecruises.com/xls/onesource/pc/marketing-materials/destinations/alaska/2022AlaskaSailingSchedulewithFaresandAmenities.xls Can someone share the code for initial amenity points, please? Seems to range from 2 to 5. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg
  11. Skynight Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for a complete, easy to read, non-judgmental answer. I did not ask the question; but, your helpful, thoughtful answer is exactly why I started reading Cruise Critic. Thanks for maintaining the tradition. Greg
  12. Does anyone know if adjoining balconies on Deck seven can be connected on Pacific Princess? On some Princess ships a door between adjoining balconies can be opened allowing people to move back and forth. Just wondering if we can connect our three balcony cabins pb our Tahiti Cruise Greg
