Considering a Tahiti cruise in 2018. Does the Wind Spirit use tenders in any ports, and if so, how accessible are they? Just wondering if a dicky knee and shoulder would prevent me from using them. Thanks.
The Wind Spirit docks at just 2 of the 6 ports on the Dreams of Tahiti cruise: Papeete (departure & arrival port) and Raiatea. They drop anchor in the lagoon at the other 4 islands: Moorea, Taha'a, Bora Bora (2 nights) and Huahine. I think the bigger question is how well you'll handle the stairs onboard (there are no elevators) as well as getting on and off all the boats you'll be taking on the snorkeling excursions (because the lagoons really are the top attraction in French Polynesia).Can you tell me where the ship anchors while in Bora Bora or Moorea?? We are bringing our inflatable Paddleboards and trying to plan our paddle.
Will post a map tomorrow. Please note that in Moorea Wind Spirit can use either Cook's Bay or Oponuhu Bay.Thanks!! Do you remember what time you were able to get off the ship in Bora Bora? We wanted to book a trip but pick up is 9 am which is the time the ship supposedly disembarks.

We are having a rental car agency pick us up at the tender pier and I assumed it would be Cook's Bay so that's what I told them. I do know that the Paul Gauguin will be there at the same time as the Wind Spirit, so I just assumed--maybe wrongly?--that the PG would be at Opunohu and we would be in Cook's Bay. . .
