Thanks David. Another ship I'd like to go on, if it had an interesting itinerary. Quite a bit bigger than Century, which I cruised on from Auckland.

Really want to do Tahitian Treasures. What was it like having 10 at sea days? It books out so quickly.

It was wonderful! The ship has so many places to socialise, hideaway, escape or drink in etc that you cannot possibly be bored. The crew were wonderful at having a variety of activities to participate in so sea days could be as busy or quiet as you wanted.
Will definitely do this cruise again.

Good to know. Thank you for sharing. I'm hoping they release the Oct 2019 sailing whilst we are on the Solstice in a few weeks
