Tahiti & the Society Islands. I had very high expectations for this trip. The Paul Gauguin exceeded my expectations in every way. The ship is small (332 passengers) and that is a huge plus. Staffing is 1.5/1 and that is great. We had ... Read more

I have always wanted to visit the Marquesas, and as I was in Papeete for a book signing of the French edition of "Tupaia, Captain Cook's Polynesian Navigator," it seemed an ideal time to fulfill that ambition ... and Paul Gauguin ... Read more

We spent three nights prior to the cruise in Moorea and took the 3 PM Arameti ferry to Papeete along with several other cruisers. It was a short walk (800 feet maybe) from where we reclaimed our baggage to the end of the PG dock. Two ... Read more

We love this cruise. The itinerary spends 2 nights in Bora Bora and 2 in Moorea. I much prefer being on the ship than the land as the view towards the islands is better, the food is better and I love not unpacking. The motu beach day is ... Read more

Our 7-day cruise on the M/S Paul Gauguin had many positives. The ship, crew, and entertainment were outstanding. The menus and meals were excellent. Leftover food is thrown away or pulverized for the sea life. Prices might be lower with ... Read more

The Gauguin has a reputation for ultra-luxury, on which it is clearly riding, at this point. The ship shows its age, outdated décor, faded carpeting, carpet coming up at the seams in main dining room; wooden frame around the ... Read more

First of all, my wife and I are not big fans of cruising. We've been on a few "large" cruise ships and we just did not rate our experiences very highly. We especially disliked being amongst the large crowds and we had vowed never ... Read more

The cruise was very expensive. To start you arrive so late in the evening you really don't have a day, it is about 1/2 hour that the cruise line counts as a day. For what you pay for this cruise, you should have excellent service, ... Read more

The Paul Gaugin is not what you think of as a traditional cruise ship. It’s much larger than a large sailboat and much smaller than what you usually see in Princess, Disney or other very large cruise ships. The word intimate comes ... Read more
