After careful review of Paul Gauguin (PG), we decided to pay the expense and sail. PG advertised themselves as being a luxury cruise ship and we were expecting greater things than what we received. In planning for the cruise, we were ... Read more

I have done multiple cruises on large cruise ships both alone and with friends/family. This was my first trip on a small ship (322 passengers) and I was concerned about whether it would be a good fit for a solo cruiser. In fact, I was ... Read more

Before boarding I made an error by reading the very few negative reviews about this ship. It left me apprehensive about our upcoming cruise. It did not take long to realise I would have been better to read the several thousand ... Read more

Before my trip on the Paul Gauguin I read a review that said it was not a luxury cruise. That gave me pause and made me a little worried that it may not live up to my expectations. But I definitely found the cruise to be a luxury ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and we initially wanted our destination to be Hawaii. We asked a friend of ours who works as a travel agent if he could suggest a good cruise line. He had heard of Paul Gauguin cruises but he wasn't sure if ... Read more

The cruise was incredible. We were able to visit 6 islands plus Tahiti having the opportunity to experience much of the diversity of the Society and Tuamotus(the atolls). I was reluctant to take a cruise as my wife and I do not generally ... Read more

We cruised to the Society Islands which enabled us to see seven French Polynesian islands. Ten days may seem like a lot but the luxury on the Paul Gaugin and the fact that you are off the ship every day (some two days at one island) makes ... Read more

I love cruising on the Paul Guaguin. Since I have never been on another cruise line I don't have much to compare it to; but discussions with friends reveal the following bonuses. 1) The boat is small so the time to disembark for on shore ... Read more
