Cruise Diary: Livin’ Large

Dutch TV host and adventure seeker Charlotte Squarcy is on board for segment of Amsterdam’s Grand World Voyage, and she is chronicling her journey. Enjoy!


Only a Brit would call a Tahitian Luau a BBQ, but “baby,” this was honest-to-goodness a dance frenzy last night.

Out on the Lido deck about a dozen Tahitians performed nonstop. Their moves were amazing. The crowd was really into it and the drummers needed a couple Big Macs each to get their energy back!

My tip is that if you know there will be outdoor entertainment, head for the hot tub, it’s the best seat in the house. What a kick to get flowers from one of the dancers afterward. Was I his sea sprite inspiration?

French Polynesia has to be on everyone’s go-to list. Sailing in is probably the best way at this point because the high demand has caused hotel prices to rise.

We had the usual outstanding HAL excursion tour. We circled the entire island, viewed all the natural splendors with five or six stops and just had a great time. I think we went through five changes in weather during the one afternoon, but that’s the tropics!
