  • What should I pack?

    We recommend that you pack the following travel essentials:

    • Comfortable cool clothing of natural fibers
    • Elegant resort wear for evenings
    • Sun hat, sunglasses, sun block – strongly recommended
    • Swimsuit and pool slippers
    • Beach cover-ups
    • Swimming T-shirt (or Lycra® top), preferably long sleeved
    • Insect repellent
    • Travel alarm clock
    • Reef shoes*
    • Jacket or sweater for cool evenings

    If you require prescription medication, be sure to bring enough to last for your entire vacation. It’s also a good idea to bring the prescription for your eyeglasses. In addition, many travelers assemble a basic traveling medicine kit that includes such items as an over-the-counter pain medication, antacids and other over-the-counter stomach remedies, sunscreen, Band-Aids, antiseptic spray and wipes, the antibiotic you generally use, and an elastic bandage. Please note that complimentary snorkeling equipment is available on board.

    * Guests should be aware that shoes suitable for wearing in the water, whether this be reef shoes, sneakers, or old sandals, are imperative to the enjoyment and safety of participating in water-based activities. There are corals, urchins, and other marine life that can cause painful cuts and injuries that can be prevented by wearing appropriate footwear while in boats and in the water. Inexpensive plastic sandals are available in Tahiti, but few shops are open on Saturday afternoons in Papeete where they are available. The next opportunity is not until the ship reaches Bora Bora. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you bring the appropriate shoes from home for this purpose. Note that flip-flops are not suitable for this function.

  • What if I have dietary restrictions?

    Please advise Judy Perl Worldwide Travel of any special dietary requirements you may have at least 60 days prior to sailing. General dietary needs such as low-salt or low-cholesterol foods can be satisfied on board the ship simply by speaking with the dining wait staff.

    If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, renewal of vows, honeymoon, or other special occasion during your cruise, allow us to celebrate with you. Please advise us of such occasions between four and six weeks prior to departure.

    There are a select number of cabins that can accommodate 3 people. They can be reserved upon a space available basis upon request.
