We are on the ship, and it is the first day at sea. Those of you that will get to be on this cruise are in for a treat. The people are so friendly and warm. We did a pre-cruise on Moorea for three days, and met a wonderful Tahitian couple who gave us a ride to the store in the back of their truck, waited for us, and took us back to our hotel. Then they invited us for a boat ride to a motu the next day, where they prepared lunch for us. We saw a few stingrays, and got to touch them. It was a special day and experience for us, and we made new friends.
We did Patrick's 4X4 excursion in Tahiti, and it was fun. Met up with fellow Cruise Critic's while on one of the trucks. It could have been about 2 hours shorter, but we enjoyed the waterfalls, and off roading.
We were in Huahine yesterday, and booked Marc's tour. This was one of, if not the best, excursions that we have ever taken. The drift snorkeling was unbelievable, and the picnic in the water was great. We would definitely do this again.
We have met up with most of our Cruise Critic friends, and we are all having a fantastic time.
