Get your motors running ladies ....

The Marquesas Warriors doing their thing at the Intercontinental Tahiti. Another great reason to book the IC Tahiti if your coming in a day or 2 early before your cruise. The IC Tahiti puts on one of the best shows at any resort in French Polynesia.

A nice welcome after a long flight to paradise. The Intercontinental Tahiti is a great place to relax and get your battery charged. Easy to find your own little piece of paradise all to yourself ........ like in this photo.

I just pat the side gently and say see you later, alligator.
I have NEVER scratched the outside of the ship! I usually handcuff myself to the Pool Bar!

Methinks the gentleman doth protest too much.

In 2011 i saw you with my own eyes...hanging on, hanging on, hanging on ...this was after you were evicted from your reserved seat by the pool bar. Well only a couple of months before you can occupy that seat again!

I noticed on the PG website banner ad today that weddings or renewal of vows can be booked on your cruise with one of the options being the chapel at the Thalasso Resort on Bora Bora.

So I though a good picture of the inside of the intimate chapel would be a fun share

As yesterday was World Turtle Day ...
Taken at the Intercontinental Resort Moorea while visiting their turtle sanctuary. Another reason to love Pacific Beachcomber who owns the IC's in FP plus the Brando, MaiTai's and of course the PG.

Thank you Wendy! We are excited about our trip! I hope we can recover from our flight enough to be able to stay wake for the cruise. As soon as we get to the IC Bali we plan to crash and sleep!
