Surprise! RSSC Has Holiday Gift for Gauguin Fans
Fans of Radisson Seven Seas Cruises' much-beloved Paul Gauguin, which cruises French Polynesia year-round, will be heartened to know that the ship will now be managed by the cruise line through 2006. The 18,800-ton, 320-passenger ship will continue sailing its Tahiti-based cruises until then.

That contradicts an announcement made in September that RSSC would relinquish the ship as of early January 2006. That's because the cruise line, which has managed Paul Gauguin's onboard operations since its launch in 1997 (but had never owned the ship), was told by the vessel's owners that it had been sold to two travel operators. Grand Circle Corporation and Vantage Deluxe World Travel had planned to rename Paul Gauguin and deploy the ship on a range of itineraries from South America to the Baltic Sea. They'll still take ownership, but will allow RSSC to continue its operations for another year.

RSSC has not yet announced the new arrangement. Check back, as we'll provide updates shortly.
