The Ship: I give a 10/10 to the ship. I have realized that small-ship cruising is the ultimate. You get know most of your travel companions in a few days and then you are just one big happy family partying 24/7. I would recommend the ... Read more

We went on this cruise because of the "sea less traveled". It was an adult only charter cruise. The staff was over the top polite and genuinely nice. The cabin, 817, was close to the pool/bar and restaurant. I would book this ... Read more

This was supposedly a 'luxury' cruise. Terrible! Go Crystal or stay home...or just fly direct to the islands worth seeing. (Contracted by PGcruises) Air Tahiti Nui--AWFUL. First Class is the only tolerable seat on the plane. PG (small, ... Read more

I was the lucky winner of a Paul Gauguin cruise to Tahiti and the Society Islands. Amazingly, our room was not the lowest level, but had a beautiful picture window! Our room was ideal, and included a small in-room safe (large enough for ... Read more

We have read many reviews of M/s Paul Gaugin and wanted to cruise in Tahiti to maximize our trip. We have sailed on Regent ships and loved those experiences. M/s Paul Gaugin staff was the real star of this show. By the end of the first ... Read more

Tahiti & the Society Islands. I had very high expectations for this trip. The Paul Gauguin exceeded my expectations in every way. The ship is small (332 passengers) and that is a huge plus. Staffing is 1.5/1 and that is great. We had ... Read more

We spent three nights prior to the cruise in Moorea and took the 3 PM Arameti ferry to Papeete along with several other cruisers. It was a short walk (800 feet maybe) from where we reclaimed our baggage to the end of the PG dock. Two ... Read more
