Ship Facts: Paul Gauguin Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Paul Gauguin Deck Plans
Our wonderful Paul Gauguin Cruise
Since your site is full of glowing reviews of the Paul Gauguin, I won't add to it except to say that we LOVED it - it is a first-class operation all the way and is easily the most luxurious cruise we have ever taken. The one negative was an optional trip we took in Bora Bora. We signed up for Watching the Sunset from a Jet Boat. We thought we'd have a thrilling fast ride on the boat. No; it was no faster than any other boat and was probably even slower. BORING!!! They served the obligatory fruit and cut-up coconuts which is no big deal when you are sailing on a ship such as luxurious as ours. The "guides" were friendly although some of the information they dispensed was factually incorrect. The sunset was disappointing because of cloud cover and I certainly don't hold that against them. We did get to see some sharks - something that was interesting for a few minutes. Then we just sat in the water for over 1/2 hour bobbing around until they took us back to shore. What we both object to was the cost - $129 per person. This was a COMPLETE RIP-OFF! If they had charged $49 per person for this excursion, we'd have been perfectly happy. However, since we took many EXCELLENT excursions--some lasting four hours--while on the ship, none cost more than $99 per person and were 100 percent worthwhile. This one left us feeling cheated and unfortunately colored our overall impression of the trip.
