    What she said ....

    That made me smile from ear to ear. I see from the finning as you are entering the pass you had a little "windy day" too - CWK that is superb. Thank you....as soon as I win lotto tonight I will be booking flights :) glad you had a good time.

    Any feedback on the LOB?

    LOB seems a bit iffy. A few new staff on board, which is never a good sign. Windlass shaft snapped on the night that we were due to sail to Fakarava. We were given the option of staying at a pension to dive Fakarava South Pass and all guests who were able to dive took that option (one couple declined as one of them had a medical condition). The LOB sailed to Tahiti to await a new windlass after dropping us off. I believe that the poor folks on the next cruise will be given the option of an amended itinerary - diving Tahiti from the LOB. I'd love to go back for another trip but am hesitant about the LOB.

    Hmmm....50% of the people I have spoken at length with did not get the advertised itinerary for mechanical issues...not a great draw card for me so far.

    However I'm so glad you had a great time :)

    I asked the Cruise Director how many trips had been cancelled and his response was that there had been 2 so far in his year at the job. As his response seemed to indicate past trips, I then asked about the trips following mine, and his response was that they were not cancelled, only that the itinerary was changed.

    I do hope they get things sorted out. There's a clear demand for a LOB out there and the diving worth it, I'd like to see a successful LOB out there....but one, only :wink:
