My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous 7 night cruise on the Paul Gauguin from Papeete to Bora Bora and return. We have been on over 30 cruises including river cruises and I have concluded that the crew and staff on the Paul Gauguin are the best! After the first day, everyone knew our names and they were TOPS at caring for us, whether in the dining room or up at the Grill or in the Theater. I felt like a princess. We stayed in cabin # 765 and really enjoyed it, especially the large shower. It was at the back of the ship which made sailing away spectacular with the sunset views. I do wish to comment that at 5:30 am each morning, chairs were moved on the deck above us, but that was always finished by 6:00 and did not amount to much disturbance. I am a very light sleeper, but the cabin itself was worth the little noise each morning. The food in all three restaurants was really well prepared with wonderful seafood and fabulous beef tenderloin. We made reservations (at no additional charge) at Le Grill and La Veranda. Both were delicious and the service was outstanding. The main restaurant was Le Etoille and it was very nice. For a very quite evening, I would choose Le Grill or La Veranda, but the food and service were amazing in all restaurants. You are allowed to make reservations in each of the speciality restaurants (Le Grille and La Veranda) for one night each only. Paul Gauguin does this to let everyone have the opportunity of enjoying the specialty restaurants. Be sure and make these reservations as soon as you get on the ship. They were making them all in La Veranda location when we got on around 3:30 PM. The Cruise Director, Michael Shapiro did an outstanding job as host each evening. Do not miss the last night's performance of the dancers. They bring them on the ship from Papeete and they are amazing!! Michael has a wonderful voice and one evening he entertained us which was a real treat. We had delicious wine offerings each evening. I had thought that the selection of the complimentary wines might be very limited, but they were paired really well with each evening's dinner. We took the pretour to Moorea before our cruise and we are so happy that we did. We had a standard lanai room and it was so very very roomy and comfortable with a beautiful view to the beach and ocean. Our friends had a beach bungaloo cabin and it was very beautiful! I would have enjoyed that but at the end I concluded that I liked being in the main hotel for the convenience of the restaurants and the pool location. I could go on and on about this cruise and the Paul Gauguin. It all was truly a fairytale in every way! Read Less
