My husband and I were booked on the Sapphire Princess for the 30-Day cruise leaving
on November 22, 2004. It will have calls to the islands of Hawaii, Polynesia, Samoa, Fiji and highlights of New Zealand and ending in Sydney. We have never been in any of these places. Can anyone who have done this cruise provide any comment? Your information is greatly appreciated.
We sailed on this itinerary last November on the Star Princess. Lovely ports of call that I am sure you will love. The only place that we were not that fond of was Fiji. Samoa was beautiful, Tahiti fantastic (except it rained most of the time we were there). Hawaii of coarse was fabulous. New Zealand again we had rain for most of our visit but that didn't stop us.
Last years cruise was only 25 days but did the exact same ports, not sure why they have extended the same cruise 5 days longer unless they plan to do more sea days on this one.
Would we sail this again? I would in a minute, but DH got a bit bored with the number of sea days so he said he wouldn't do it again.
Thank you for the information. This cruise has more days at sea. Total of 16 days.
We don't mind days at sea. My husband is thinking about the rainy days. Did you start
yoor cruise same time as ours? I will make sure we have raincoats ready. That happened when we cruised the Baltic last summer. Lots of rain.
