From the very second our taxi dropped us off at the cruise port in Papeete, we were blown away at the services. Friendly greetings, clear and concise directions on how to board and a person at every turn pointing you in right direction. Champagne greeting with the cruise host and then a little presentation and then to our room and our luggage was already there as well as a fully stocked ...

I had researched this cruise for 3 years and I knew the ship was 25 years old this year so we expected an older ship. However, upon arrival, we were greeted with the kindest smiles and a beautiful ship that was recently remodeled. We stayed on Deck 4 with a window view, which was perfect for us as we were hardly ever in the room. We spent lots of time by the pool. We went directly to the spa and ...

We were excited to take this smaller cruise ship in the French Polynesia Islands and had read many reviews indicating what a luxury cruise line this was with excellent cuisine and more intimate since the ship is smaller. The staff working onboard are terrific and attentive to every detail. The ship itself is beautiful with updated decor making this very appealing, especially since this is an ...

An incredible exploration of the Tuamotus, Marquesas and Society Islands

We were a party of three on the 14 day Marquesas, Tuamotus & Society Islands trip. As previous Ponant passengers (Antarctica and the Kimberley), we felt that this trip was more akin to a Ponant "expedition", the format of which we absolutely love. We can't speak highly enough of our experience on this expedition. While our stateroom on the PG was a tiny bit dated (dark wood instead of the ...

My spouse and I have cruised with 8 different cruise lines and we agree Paul Gauguin has been the most overrated based on critic and passenger reviews we read prior to booking and also the most overpriced. First of all, the ship itself is quite tired/dated looking both inside and out, therefore needs a complete makeover. On a positive note, it’s clearly an older ship thus the rooms and bathrooms ...

Definitely Not a 5 Star Experience

We have just finished the Paul Gauguin 7 day Society Islands cruise. It was a very disappointing experience for many reasons. Firstly, the ship is old, and although the public areas have had a tasteful refit, the cabins, and specifically the bathrooms are dreadful. Replacing a shower curtain over a bath with a static glass panel, so that you have to lean right in to turn on and adjust the water ...

Seven Day French Polynesian Cruise

Seven day French Polynesian cruise with 300+ passengers October 29-November 5, 2022. Be aware the cruise is only six days (seven nights) which is too short for the travel time and expense to French Polynesia. Plan to book island stays for a week before or after the cruise. Our favorite resort was “Le Taha’a” a 50 bungalow resort on a motu accessible only by the resort boat off the west shore of ...

This was a dream destination for us, postponed twice due to covid travel. The size of the ship is good for this area. Only 230 passengers so excellent service. And spends longer in this area than the big ships. The crew are all amazing, very quickly know your names. Nothing too much trouble. Food was excellent . We especially liked The Grill and dining by the pool in Bora Bora was ...

In wanting to explore the South Pacific and the islands, we chose the small ship, The Paul Gauguin. The service and information available to us in preparation for the trip was superb. Each phone call was extremely helpful and thorough. Even at the Airport in LA they had a very gracious representative who welcomed us and gave us information that would be helpful. Once on the ship we were ...
