If large resort style vessels accommodating many thousands of passengers are your ideal, then the MV Tere Moana is not for you as you will not find endless entertainment, round the clock buffets and the people management which is so much a part of today’s big ship onboard style. However, if you like us you prefer a more peaceful life at sea you will find this the ideal vessel. The atmosphere onboard is informal; a little live piano music in the lounge or bar after dinner, talks from our guest speaker and informative port briefings and of course good food, all contribute to make any voyage aboard this wonderful vessel a memorable and joyful experience. After a day ashore you will return to the comfort and peace of an exceedingly comfortable ship. The dress code is smart casual, jacket and tie are optional.
