Tere Moana Overview

The sleek, 88-passenger Tere Moana joined Paul Gauguin Cruises in December 2012 after a renovation. Built for French line Compagnie du Ponant in 1998 as Le Levant, the re-branded ship gained new decor, signage and furnishings, as well as updates to public areas and restaurants.

Tere Moana has 44 outside cabins, eight of which sport balconies. Category B and C cabins are 194 square feet, and feature picture windows. The top-ship, 205-square-foot Category A cabins feature 93-square-foot verandahs. All cabins have temperature control, king-size bed (all have the option for twin-bed configuration), bathroom with full-size shower, bathrobes, slippers, hair dryer, TV, CD/DVD player, safe, and stocked mini-fridge. Some cabins can accommodate three passengers.

There are two open-seating restaurants, and a lounge offering live entertainment and lectures. The ship also has a swimming pool, sun deck, whirlpool, Balinese sun beds, spa, fitness center, small library and a water sports marina (think kayaks and windsurfers).

Itinerary-wise, Tere Moana divides its time between the Caribbean and Central America (winter), and Europe (summer).

Cruise fares are inclusive of gratuities, beverages and select fine wines and premium spirits. Wi-Fi hotspots are located throughout the ship, and Internet access is available at an additional charge.

I've read the previous reviews of this ship and will not repeat the positive remarks as I agree with all from staterooms to dining and ports. We are looking forward to another future sailing!
