Guest Lynda Gavigan Halttunen and her husband Don sent us several great posts from their 30-day South Pacific cruise on Westerdam. Enjoy “cruising” with them!
We arrived in Papeete, Tahiti, at 9:00 p.m. We sat on the top deck and watched the “sail-in.” We over-nighted on the dock, but didn’t go into town until the following morning. I bought a few souvenirs/gifts at the open-air market. The vanilla beans were $42! I loved that everyone spoke French and that the town/island had a very French sea-side feel. We returned to the ship for an early sailaway.
