Sail Date: Sep 2015

Just returned from what should of been a fantastic holiday celebrating our 30th anniversary.

Arrived on ship, all seemed good, quick & organised embarkation, went to our suite, 711, very impressed with amount of space, flower arrangement & bubbly on ice in room. Jonathan our butler introduced himself & was very helpful, answered all our questions & made notes of reservations we wanted in restaurants. The service on the ship was outstanding, all staff always greeted you with a smile, mealtimes waiters are always walking around topping up your wine but never intrusive.

This is sadly where the positive feedback ends. The week we cruised, the ship had over 200 doctors with partners on board from Quebec on a conference / seminar based holiday. We have never met such rude people who did not want to mix with anyone on board who was not a french speaking doctor. We should of been told this when we booked & i feel that Paul Gauguin let other people on board to make the numbers up.
