Paul Gauguin overview

Sailing on seven-night voyages from Tahiti, the Paul Gauguin is an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of Polynesia. With American attention to luxury and comfort and a French flair for casual sophistication, the ship radiates warmth, informality, and openness. Here, the constraints of formal wear, tuxedos, and ties are forgotten and the only dress code is relaxation. Excellent wines from France, California, and other vineyard-dotted domains flow freely at lunch and dinner in three restaurants. There is a specially designed, retractable watersports platform, where guests may conveniently launch a kayak, try a little waterskiing, or set out for a scuba diving expedition.

Enjoyable, though Expensive by vrob

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Paul Gauguin / Destination: South Pacific - Tahiti

Paul Gauguin is upscale but lesser in quality than Regent, Silver Seas, Crystal and other upper end cruise lines. The ship really is too small and too old. It is a great way to visit some of the outlying Tahitian islands, but is grossly overpriced. Would not recommend this cruise unless one could book a balcony cabin for about 1/3 less (i..e., $3-4k/person). It simply isn't worth more.

Make sure you are on the first tender to the private motu at Taha'a to make sure you get a chaise lounge int he front row and have the full day to enjoy the island!
