The stateroom was very comfortable, the service was excellent and the excursions were awesome. We swam with rays and sharks in the Lagoonairium in Moorea. We didn't book this through the ship but we learned about it on trip advisor. We saved a lot on the taxi (we used Teva Taxi) and were treated to a very good tour of the island on the way there and back. We rented a waverunner for 3 hours in Bora Bora. Fantastic!

This is an complete cruise package, including meals, non-premium alcohol and gratuities. Excursions were reasonably priced. Our stateroom had a problem with toilet flushing, but it was manageable. The staff are very attentive. On-board medical facilities are limited and any serious problem must be handled "on-shore." Embarkation began at 3 PM, with nowhere to wait if arriving early.

This trip was amazing! From the pre cruise 3 night stay in the over the water bungalows in Bora Bora to the 10 nights on the M/S Paul Gauguin everything was perfect. The crew & service was exceptional & the smaller ship with only 332 passengers made it more personable.

We just can't say enough good things about the whole experience.

Highly recommend it & plan on going on more Paul Gauguin cruises!

The embarkation time is 3PM for the cruise took. E, and earlier arrivals had no place to wait. This could be a problem in rainy weather. Alcohol, except for premium brands, is included in the price, as is all food, regardless of restaurant. Evening dress is shoes, collared shirt/trousers for men
