We were three senior couples on the ten day Paul Gauguin cruise in the Society Islands starting from Papeete, Tahiti. It's a trek getting from the east coast US to Tahiti which required a 12 hr layover in LA before boarding our flight and ... Read more

We cruised to the Society Islands which enabled us to see seven French Polynesian islands. Ten days may seem like a lot but the luxury on the Paul Gaugin and the fact that you are off the ship every day (some two days at one island) makes ... Read more

I love cruising on the Paul Guaguin. Since I have never been on another cruise line I don't have much to compare it to; but discussions with friends reveal the following bonuses. 1) The boat is small so the time to disembark for on shore ... Read more

Our family has cruised this ship for multiple cruises and we decided to join them on this trip. It was the best cruise trip we could ever ask for. From "Five Star" gourmet dining to staff that know you by first name, it was all ... 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

We booked a 10 day cruise with PG because the itinerary was the most extensive one we found. Seven islands and some multiple day stays on some islands. It was a specially arranged cruise for cruisers who are repeat customers of the Paul ... Read more

We're experienced cruisers who wanted to try a smaller ship, and Paul Gauguin was touted as the top of the line experience. It very much failed to live up to that billing. The ship had apparently just come out of dry dock in Singapore, and ... Read more

I’ve traveled twice with the M/S Paul Gauguin, and in my experiences it has been a world apart. That’s its strength and its weakness. When it comes to Tahiti and the Society Islands, PG has a legendary reputation and nearly a ... Read more

There is something special about a ship when almost half of the 280 passengers are repeaters on a cruise line that sails very limited itineraries. This was our second time sailing on the Paul Gauguin in four years. First we did a two week ... Read more
