By 2010, the South Seas had been on our fantasy trip list for many years. When we found out WT offered a cruise to Tahiti that included an eclipse at sea (complete with astronomer guides), it was an offer we couldn’t refuse! We were so enchanted by the tropical paradise of French Polynesia that we extended our stay for three nights on Bora Bora, where we swam with the fish and sea turtles and toured the island. Certainly the trip of a lifetime!
