December visit to Mo'orea and Bora Bora

My wife and I are visiting French Polynesia in mid-December and have heard mixed comments about the weather. Any advice on what to expect in terms of rainfall, sunshine, limits on what to do around the islands?

Bora Bora/ Moorea

We will visit French Polynesia next March for 9 days. What would your suggestion be to do in that 9 days? Is it worth it to buy a ticket to Bora Bora or is Moorea as beautiful?
Any suggestions on nice diving spots over there? And costs?

Thanks a lot

French Polynesia for 2-4 weeks in July 2015

Hello. I'm hoping I could get some advice on staying somewhere in French Polynesia for anywhere from 2-4 weeks in July next year.

I realise that sounds quite vague but we have decided it would be a great stop during out 6 month sabbatical with our 2 year old. We will be flying out of LA then onto NZ as that seems to be the best direct flights.

Basically I know nothing

Is it safe?
Is it suitable for a 2 year old?
I know that July is a good time for weather but bad as may be busy however…

iPad Use

Hi everyone,

I will be leaving for a dream trip to Polynesia this autumn - a week's cruise around Polynesia. Since cruise ship internet is notoriously expensive, I'm thinking of buying a micro SIM card for my iPad once I arrive in Papeete.

Does anyone have advice for me what kind of micro SIM cards exist, what to look out for and where to get one? And am I right in assuming that a card bought on Tahiti would work on the other French Polynesians islands like Bora Bora as well?

Thanks!

Cruising on the Aranui in 2015

Hi,

We've heard great things about the Aranui 3 and are interested in taking the trip next year (Nov 2015) but there seems to be no prices, or any way of making enquiries at the moment. Is this because they are replacing the ship? When will we be able to make enquiries? (we would be coming from a long way away and need to plan a long time in advance...)

Many thanks, Heidi
