"Last night we had dinner with friends & reminisced about the most unbelievable trip we've ever experienced ~ French Polynesia!. You were right, the only bad thing about the trip was, we had to come home.
The entire trip was so much more than I ever imagined. The staff on the boat were amazing. They knew our names by the second day, what you liked to drink in the afternoon. I was wondering where my name tag was?
Fritz and Janice did three dives. They were blown away by the ease of walking to the ships aft dock, stepping on the boat and off to the dive sight. Larry laughed one morning, asking if the dive was cancelled because they returned so quickly. Fritz said it was the best oiled machine he'd ever seen. When those guys dive on our sailing trips, it takes them an hour just to get their gear together.
The boat was oh la la. Larry and I LOVED our room on the fantail of the boat!!!
So decadent, roomy and beautiful. I made a point to get up early to watch coming into port. I didn't want to miss a thing. I was amazed how close we were to the "land". The latte on the back of the deck, absorbing the scenery.
I get goose bumps just reliving through typing this email. We were so happy pool side relaxing and soaking up the sun and scenery. Moorea was our favorite island. I found beautiful black pearls at the "Tahitian Black Pearl Market" in Papeete (reasonable priced & recommended to us from the IC Tahiti Resort).
The InterContinental Tahiti Resort was again amazing. We LOVED our Overwater Lagoon Bungalow. Every morning, afternoon or evening I had my own aquarium of tropical fish. We were spoiled beyond belief. I've never experienced a vacation where I got to relax and just enjoy!
We met amazing people and made friends at the hotel and on the boat. The entire trip was magical.
Thank you thank you for working with us in making our dream come true. What a wonderful way to experience 30 years of Larry and I being together."
