Outstanding ship; outstanding islands by HarryR4

The ship felt the most spacious of any we have travelled on. There were quite a number of singles travelling alone, so the ship was not quite full to capacity. Some much larger ships have more dramatic public spaces but have always felt more crowded. On one smaller, expedition ship, the interior space was cramped.

a unique experience by MaryA31

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We have cruised several times in the past seven years and had heard good things about the PG. We enjoyed the cabin; it reflected that we were on a ship, rather than a floating hotel. It was small, but very efficient. The lounge was nice, but no handrail on the steps made it difficult for some of the elderly passengers. Food and service were excellent. The decor was understated and pleasant. The entertainment was average. The lecturerers were very interesting and clearly educated about the area of the ship's itinerary. We enjoyed the experience, but felt that with the travel costs, it was a rather expensive cruise for what we were able to see and do. The islands have limited experiences- sightseeing is basically IT. I was disappointed in that this wasn't the luxury ship and clientele that I had been told to expect. We missed a quiet area in which to read during the day. The small ship doesn't have the space. The casino was little used and might have been replaced by a small quiet lounge for cards and reading.

My wife and I celebrated... by BruceF3

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon by doing a back-to-back-to back cruise on the n Paul Gauguin. It was an experience of a lifetime.We flew from LA via Air New Zealand. It was great both ways. The first cruise began December 14, 2002, which was a regular 7 night voyage. Everything was super - the staff is the best we've ever encountered. We enjoyed the beautiful Tahitian people, their way of life, and the beautiful "Gauguins", the ship's most beautiful ladies. They were precious. The sites and activities were abundant. The second week was Christmas week. It was fabulous - everything was perfect. At the end of the second week, the hotel director, Philippe, asked us if we would like to stay on for a third week - New Year's week, as there was a cancellation.Imagine, we could stay in our chosen balcony cabin one more week and enjoy the best cuisine and hospitality anyone could ask for. New Year's cruising is something we do every year and this was the best by far. The warmth and tenderness of the crew was outstanding. Best staff on the high seas.I would recommend this experience to all.Bruce E.F.
