The staff on the Gauguin are totally wonderful without being stuffy. Their dive staff is the BEST! Food is great, locales and tours are fascinating and they have really quality lecturers on board, including a resident anthropologist and (for his last trip) Jean-Michel Cousteau. They haven't renewed his contract and I CANNOT imagine why!!! He's a super speaker and an absolutely lovely gentleman.
The ship is a perfect size. It's showing its age a little, but nothing major - mostly cosmetic.
The fact that it is all-inclusive really makes life SO much better and easier. You can budget your expenses and know you won't overspend.

If you dive, do dive with them. The dive staff is great and you leave the ship right from the aft watersports platform that drops down from the ship - VERY convenient!!!
