I'm thinking of going to a hawaii/tahiti cruise on august 17 and would like to know if I should stay a couple more days in papeete, tahiti or not or fly to bora bora, tahiti and stay there. I heard it's quite expensive there. Can somebody help me out and maybe recommend a hotel or something?
We stayed in Papeete after our cruise at the Sheraton it was nice, but the Beachcomber was nicer (the pool area was spectacular). At the Sheraton a hamburger was $17.00 so yes it is expensive, but was nice to relax those 2 days. We did an excursion to the inland part of the island, thru Patricks Adventures.
You can stay in Moorea and it is just a short ferry ride over, but we just used the hotel that Princess offered.
