The Paul Gauguin cruise ship was a great experience for our 11 night cruise Nov.10-21.  The food was excellent, the entertainment was fabulous, the waiters and workers were friendly and very helpful, making sure your cruise experience was wonderful!  There were 3 main restaurants on the ship and all were exceptional!  All the wine & spirits were included and all the gratuities were included.  The extras were an unknown extra cost of almost $1,000: snorkelling tours,guided island tours, etc at each island were extra costs and you had to sign up for them in advance or you couldn't do anything on that particular island!  That was a little frustrating but we learned to get signed up after the first or second day!  Our suite was nice sized but 2 small windows unlike some of our shipmates Happythat had a large picture window and were several floors up.  We enjoyed our experience and liked that it was a small ship with under 300 people on board and we were all taken good care of the whole trip!

Didn't like the 2 porthole windows and couldn't see much. Friends we made had a much better oceanview room with large picture window and another had a balconey. We were on a low floor and would have preferred a 4-6 floor for better view. We did appreciate the mouse cake & fruit upon our arrival to our cabin for our anniversary! Very nice touch!
