The five-star Tere Moana entered service in 2013 under new ownership following a multi-million dollar refurbishment. This exclusively chartered, deluxe, 90-passenger vessel fits the profile of small-ship cruising perfectly and can cruise into ports inaccessible to larger ships.
Eight of the five-star ocean-view spacious accommodations have a private veranda. Each stateroom features a large picture window, private marble-and-teak appointed bathroom with shower, one queen bed or two twin beds, luxurious European linens and amenities, individual climate control, robes and cotton slippers, satellite television, minibar, safe, and hair dryer. Welcome flowers and fruit are provided in each stateroom upon arrival.
The elegant L'Etoile dining room and La Veranda restaurant accommodate all guests at a single, unassigned seating, and an attentive staff serves international cuisine featuring fresh local ingredients. Early risers’ coffee, buffet breakfast, buffet lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner are served daily. Indoor or outdoor dining is featured in La Veranda for breakfast and lunch and a culinary creation from a consulting two-star Michelin-rated chef is offered nightly in L’Etoile at dinner. Complimentary room service and wellness and vegetarian meal options are available. Complimentary alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages are served throughout the cruise.
The inviting and spacious public areas are tastefully appointed and include a large lounge, where a program of enriching lectures is held, two bars, a comfortable library with computers, wireless Internet hotspots, spa, boutique, and outdoor swimming pool.
The Tere Moana’s English-speaking crew provides courteous, professional service and sails with an onboard physician. There is one crewmember for every 1.5 guests. The ship has an elevator.
