Worst cruise ever. Staff members... by CruiseShipFan

Sail date: /
Ship: Tere Moana

Worst cruise ever. Staff members are very rude and obnoxious. A staff member came up to my family and I and said “You look ugly dumbo” It’s also very small and too crowded. Disney and Norwegian are way better than this.

Fine accommodations, food, and service but weak conscierge by Goodtraveler

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Tere Moana / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

The itinerary was very promising, the captain was especially friendly and informative, the fellow passengers (only 22) were delightful, the food was always good and the service was exemplary, but the communications from the concierge left everyone uncertain about their plans.

Exceptionally Fine & Caring Service on Ideal Small Luxury Ship by VaCavalier

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Tere Moana / Destination: Transatlantic

Let me start with what I think distinguishes the M/S Tere Moana of Paul Gauguin Cruises from other small, deluxe category cruise ships: An outstanding on board staff, professional and truly dedicated to guest satisfaction, who enjoy working together as a well coordinated team. This is reflected in an exceptionally fine passenger experience.

The food is outstanding, both in regard to the quality of the ingredients and preparation. The included alcoholic beverages are top shelf and the complimentary wine of high quality.

While I had a stateroom with a nice balcony, holding both a lounge chair and small table with 2 chairs for drinks or dining (there is a large and varied free room service menu) on deck 5, I have seen the other stateroom configurations on decks 3 & 4, all of which are of generous size (there are no inside staterooms). The bathrooms are fine & functional, with showers that have curved sliding doors, rather than the clingy shower curtains found on other ships, and the toiletries are L'Occitane.

The bed (king size or twin configurations) is extremely comfortable with bed linens of the highest quality.

The officers, including the Captain, enjoy mingling & sharing meals with the guests (on this voyage both the Captain & Staff Captain were from Sweden).

The shore excursion options were well planned.

to summarize, on the Tere Moana, Paul Gauguin cruises provides an outstanding cruise experience, which can be recommended with enthusiasm.

Since this ship has been sold to another company, there's not much to say. Perhaps we'll take another cruise in it if the destination interests us and especially if the captain stays with the ship.
