  3. Good day, Day One: We took a taxi to Matira Beach in the morning and we told the driver to come back in 3 hours to bring us to Bloody Mary's. He came back about 1h30 later to bring us back to the pier in Vaitape. We got to the pier before dinner. You can arrange that at the pier in the morning with a driver. Day Two. Took a private Combo tour ( https://boraboraexplorer.com/tours/motu-island-4x4-trip/) around the island in the AM. Just before lunch were were brougth to a small Motu a few distance awa from Matira for a polynesian lunch. We stayed a few hours and they brought us back to the ship with ample time to change and get ready for the short trip to the festivities on the private motu. We did not spend the day at the motu. There a few restaurant and beach bar at Matira.
  4. Us too, the Private Island dinner was on the second night. Just in case, we planned our Motu lunch on the first day so not to interfere if WS had a change of plan. We were covered both ways. We had lunch at Bloody Marys on the second day (had to try this place). We had fun, did not spend big $$$ (had burger and a few drinks). We enjoyed it. I would put pictures up but it would spoils all the fun. have a great time.
  5. Agree with Ducklite. You can browse this week flyer from Carrefour to give you an idea of prices for groceries and everyday items. https://en.calameo.com/read/004508499613b727b35c9?page=1
  6. And maybe, maybe, keep fare a wee bit more accessible for canadian !
  7. UPDATE: According to a message received from the Carrefour store in Papeete "The sale of alcohol in Polynesia is regulated: sale authorized until 20h from Monday to Saturday and until 12h on Sunday" Cheers Daniel
  8. La Cave de Tahiti : Closed on Sunday Carrefour : Open on Sunday http://www.carrefour.pf/ Champion : Open on Sunday http://www.championtahiti.com/ (don't know if they have restriction on selling alcohol on Sunday)
  9. Price are reasonnable (from about 12$+ a bottle) Here is a sample at the local Carrefour at the Pacific Plaza. Also a few other wine shop downtown Papeete (La cave de Tahiti). BTW, Tahiti is NOT a French colony but a Territoire d'Outre-mer (Oversea territory) with their own Assembly, President, Budget and Laws. France is responsible for Education, Security and some subsidies.
  10. I'm just saying this as if you look at Sin Marteen it took roughly 18 months to be able to look a bit like it used to be. France and the Netherland contributed a lot in the rebuilding.
  11. Considering the Hurricane, this might take place somewhere else as the Grand Bahama Shipyard might have been hit also.
  12. Businesses such as a cruise line have contract with outside suppliers. If there is enough demand they will ask the suppliers but they don't want to be stuck with extra bottles (I have no idea for price as I don't drink tequila). Not as much an issue when you have 5ooo passengers on board.
  13. Brodosplit is looking at a new buyer for the Flying Clipper LOL
