The Paul Gauguin Does Cruises Right !
Destination: South Pacific
You may get sticker shock when first looking at PG Cruises but when you realize what is all included it is well worth the difference.......from the moment you step on board & are greeted by one of the lovely Gauguines ( PG's Tahitian Hostesses) you realize a difference.....no long lines anywhere.( only 332 passangers.)..a cabin refer. filled with cold beer, soda & bottled water..all included, PG has 3 dining venues all of which are included( no cover charge) All our meals were between excellent & outstanding....service was always outstanding..and wine and cocktails & sodas are also included ..anytime & unlimited !
Also included were a pre cruise day room & buffet breakfast at the lovely Intercontinental Resort ( due to Air schedules to Tahiti planes arrive early in the AM) and also due to late night flight schedules..a day room after the cruise is also included..and to use up some of the extra time..a bus tour of Papeete is included...as are tips..check out their web site More for more info....
And of course ( we did Tahiti & The Cook Islands) the ports are absolutely amazing. PG has a private beach in Boro Bora & a Motu in Taha'a with a BBQ lunch that was amazing...and no problem finding a shaded beach chair !
Did I mention the floating bar (Included) and enrichment lectures ( included)
The entertainment was great ...a piano bar every evening....shows staring Michael Shapiro ( the cruise director/singer) We even had lunch with him!...The Gauguines were also wonderful singers & dancers and shared their culture with us..plus a few local dance companies were brought aboard. Children's programs are only available a few time a year..This is primarily an adult cruise.
We are now spoiled..no more mega ships for us! Less
