Our 7-day cruise on the M/S Paul Gauguin had many positives. The ship, crew, and entertainment were outstanding. The menus and meals were excellent. Leftover food is thrown away or pulverized for the sea life. Prices might be lower with ... Read more

The Paul Gaugin cruise to the South Pacific islands of French Polynesia and Fiji did not disappoint. The on board amenities including the state room, the food and the service was over the top. The crew was the most friendly I've ever ... Read more

We've travelled on other cruise lines and ships so this review is relative to those cruises. The price we paid was more than twice as much as we have paid on other lines for similar accommodation. The cabins and balconies are no bigger but ... Read more

Had to to stay at the Intercontinental Resort Tahiti for two nights which sadly did not live up to the image and 5 star status. Word of advice - if you drink tea and coffee take your own and the alcohol prices are ludicrous. Embarking on ... Read more

I have done multiple cruises on large cruise ships both alone and with friends/family. This was my first trip on a small ship (322 passengers) and I was concerned about whether it would be a good fit for a solo cruiser. In fact, I was ... Read more

What a wonderful trip we had. The food was fantastic. Try to make your reservations quickly for the La Veranda. We had a chance to eat there twice on the cruise. So nice to have only 320 guests on the ship, so we got to know a lot of the ... Read more
