Horrible Horrible Cruise with Paul Gauguin

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Singapore

We spent A LOT of money to travel to Singapore and Thailand on what was promoted as a luxury cruise ship. This was far from the truth. There were so many things that were inferior - STAY AWAY from this cruise line.

For the entire 8 days, there were problems with the air conditioning no the ship. Sometimes the cabins didn't have A/C and sometimes it was the dining rooms and sometimes it was the entertainment areas (piano bar, casino, club, stage). We were in Thailand where it is 90+ degrees and 90% humidity - with no A/C - Totally ridiculous!

The pool was very small and it was too deep to stand up in, which made it difficult to enjoy and converse with people.

There was little to no entertainment, and a terrible DJ in the club night after night, even though the crowd was older, she played the techno crap she liked, nothing that was fun to dance to.

The breakfast was exactly the same everyday, and was shut down by 9:30 -REALLY??? The food was banquet More quality - totally subpar day after day, nothing was upscale (lots of gravy on everything). Each night the menu was the same at all the restaurants, there were two that you needed reservations for, but same menu with no atmosphere. The first night I ordered a steak that was not edible - even Applebees serves a better steak and that's not saying much. There were various bars that would be open for short periods of time and then they would close, right when everyone was in that area??  The first 2 ports that were suppose to be part of the cruise, were eliminated.

Thankfully there were great people on the ship that we had a great time with, or the cruise would have been a total disaster. If you want luxury, try AZAMARA. We took a cruise in 2013 to Greece and Turkey and it was sooooo much better. Less
