Have you read or heard as I did that this Cruise ship sailed along some of the loveliest Islands of French Polynesia and was supposed to be the luxury Cruise of a life time, great boat, great food, etc....? This is what I tought when I paid a hefty sum of money to book a single cabin on what was to be a beautiful and memorable experience. How pretentious to call yourself a "luxury" Cruise ship when noise of workers going through all kinds of manœuvres on the ship start at 6:00 AM, when the smell of the boat chimney's exhaust comes through the AC of your cabin, when the AC of your cabin hardly works and when it does, the noise Keeps you awake, when the personnel servicing your cabin hardly understand english and what your are asking,..... cleanliness of the verandas should have been better ( soot from chimneys everywhere), cushions on beach chairs in pool area dirty with soot, and this is A LUXURY Cruise ship ?? Silly me to think that on a luxury Cruise on a boat of just over 300 passengers the personnel would be at my Beck & call and that in French Polynesia, most of the personnel on this boat, the Paul Gauguin, would speak or understand french?? Seabourn cruises understand Class on a luxury ship, the Paul Gaguin company do not. On other mass market cruises I have been on and at a much cheaper fare, I have had better service, food just as good but a much more extensive wine list and all in all, a Very satisfying Cruise.Other passengers on this Cruise also complained about different issues they had that week . Paul Gaguin cruises in French Polynesia seem to have the Monopoly and enjoy popularity that I can hardly understand unless you don't mind paying 8 to 10,000.00$ dollars for a double Room and a Very ordinary Cruise. I hope other Cruise Lines Will soon offer more quality cruises in this area so that next time I can have a choice of a real luxury Cruise. So beware of the publicity and reputation of Paul Gauguin Cruise Lines, they do not live up to it!! Read Less

Was told I was embarking on a "luxury" Cruise, it was everything but luxurious! You would think with 300 passengers you would get top service and attention, out of this world food and beautiful cabins! Very pretentious of this Cruise Line to sell itself as luxurious when cabin noise Wales you every morning at 6:00, AC is also Very noisy and not Very cool, food is good but what tou can expect and get on any other Cruise Line, wine list quite ordinary, and cabin personnel hard to find and not able to understand much english! This was a "bucket list" trip for me, a once in a life time, spent alot of money on fare for a huge disapointment ! Strange how many other passengers also expressed dissatisfaction... Hope in the future other Cruise Lines Will sail Polynesia so the Paul Gauguin has some competition and not the Monopoly as they seem to have now. So Cruise lovers beware! This is not what you think and you Will definitely NOT get your money's worth! Read Less
