PG is NOT worth the money

Paul Gauguin Cruise Review by marykuhl

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: the South Pacific

Please understand the ship is nice and in good condition, but quite old. Our balcony was very small - like you could barely fit two chairs and a small table. The price of this cruise was triple any comparable cruise we've ever sailed.

If you book this cruise, you must take their pre-post package. We opted to stay longer so that we could use a timeshare week and were required to pay an extra $100 to NOT take their package. PG is not flexible. Also, we found that by not taking the pre-post package, we were treated like second-class citizens.

We took one excursion and found the tours we booked while staying at our time share were far superior and half the price.

If you're celebrating a special anniversary, let PG know ahead of time as they have a celebration on board. We celebrated our anniversary, but were not told about this event.

Although the service and entertainment and activities were good, none were as outstanding as we've experienced with other cruises.

The most positive aspect of the cruise was the food. It was always good. That said,

I would never again go on this cruise again, nor could I recommend it to my friends.
