Paul Gauguin for Families

Editor Rating
Families
2.0

Except during holiday sailings (Christmas and New Year's) and some summer cruises, children are a rarity on Paul Gauguin. As such, those sailings, which draw about 45 to 50 children each, are the only ones to offer special activities for kids.

On those cruises, indicated on the line's cruise calendar, Paul Gauguin brings on additional crew to care for children and set up activities, such as pizza parties, movie nights and crafts, to keep kids entertained. Because there are no dedicated children's facilities, most activities take place in the Captain's Lounge, a small facility located on Deck 7 that often is used for private functions.

In addition, Paul Gauguin Cruises offers the Ambassadors of the Environment program, tailored for families with children ages 9 to 17. Created in partnership with Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of Jacques Cousteau) and the Ocean Futures Society, the program entertains and educates through a series of eco-excursions. Parents and their kids will snorkel and hike across the islands. The program costs $299 to $379 for participants.

There are no family cabins.
