Steve Castle review from   
Kathy Dickey review from      

...back from my Tahiti trip on the R3.  It was the best cruise I have ever been on.  Renaissance does a wonderful job of getting the passengers from the airport to the ship in a minimum amount of time.  There were some complaints about staying at the hotel on the way back, but given the option of going to the airport and sitting there or spending it at

the hotel, I would prefer the hotel.  I must say after the food on the ship the buffet at the hotel left much to be desired. 

We ate most of our dinners in the Club, but did have one dinner in the Grill and one in the Italian restaurant.  I preferred the Club overall, although the Grill was nice and the Italian restaurant was alright.  We ate most of our breakfasts and lunches at the buffet.  The pizza was very good.  We went to all of the shows and thought they were good maybe not as spectacular and flashy as some to the ships, but overall good.  

We took all circle island tours and reserved them through Renaissance and were very pleased.  We could have made arrangements on the dock, as there certainly were enough tour people there, but decided since we are 2 senior citizen ladies we did not want to take a chance that we wouldn't get a good tour.  

We had wonderful weather, it was hot in the sun but the air was nice and clear.   We had rain one night and 15 minutes one day toward the end of the cruise.   

The only thing I was disappointed in was the air schedule that Renaissance set up for us.  We left from Newark, NJ on 5/21 at 8 a.m. and arrived in LAX at 11:20 a.m. and were on the 3:15 p.m. flight to Tahiti and that wasn't too bad, but coming back we were on the 5/31 10 p.m. flight out of Tahiti and arrived at LAX on 6/1 at 9 a.m. and had to wait until 3:30 p.m. for a flight to Newark which was delayed until 4:40 p.m. and we didn't get on the plane until 5 p.m. and arrived in Newark on 6/2 at 1 a.m.  They did put us on non-stop flights, so that was good, but I think they could have come up with an airline that had a return flight out of LAX to Newark around noon.  If I had to do it again, I would book my own flight to LAX with an overnight at a hotel both ways.  

But all in all, it was a wonderful trip with fabulous, friendly people in the dining rooms and buffet.  I liked the open dining plan and we met a lot of nice people that way.  The 2 offers of having your laundry done for $10 was a nice surprise.

I am looking forward to my next Renaissance cruise.
