"Our experience on Paul Gauguin met, and actually exceeded, every expectation we had of our cruise…EVERYTHING was simply done exceptionally well. Every little detail was managed expertly by the cruise staff...and always with a smile. We would not change a thing about our Paul Gauguin experience, except perhaps to make the cruise longer!"
