Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Other

This is our second cruise with Paul Gauguin Cruises. We love Tahiti so much that we've been there for the third time. Our first cruise with Paul Gauguin Cruises was in July, 1998. During that time the stateroom was with all stainless steel fixtures and the dinning rooms were very nice. This time when we returned on the ship and found out that this ship has changed ownership and they have cut corners on the cruise.

The dinning rooms were lacked of elegance and sophistication of a luxuary cruise ship. The food was so so, appetizers came in a small portion and the soup was always very salty ( which is not healthy for seniors ).The ship entertainment was downgraded from our previous sailing. We found that the whole staffs were very friendly and nice to the guests and the dinning room staffs have excellent service.  we were also very happy with the stateroom stewardess for taking care of our stateroom. The fitness center is too small and the exercise machines are so close to More each other. The ship photographers does not take good photos and their sit down portraits have limited poses for the passengers, it would be better if the photographers can have some new and creative ideas of helping the passengers to pose for the photos. The safe deposit box in the statement is so small which doesn't hold too much valuables in it. The dinning room and the public areas can have more colorful decorations instead of the black & white prints hanging on the walls. There have limited restroom on the ship, wish that they can have more restrooms on Deck 4 & 6. Less

Cabin review: E427

The stateroom was adequate for a couple and it has a lot of storage space. The safe deposit box inside the cabin is too small for putting in our valuables. The restroom was nice and spacious. We don't appreciated that there were a couple of topless black and white photos hanging on the wall. Bad taste!
