We chose this cruise due to the itinerary and the supposed reputation of Holland America being a classy cruise line. It was to be a continuation of a seven night cruise that we took on the Paul Gauguin. We were looking forward to the stops at Rarotonga, Cook Islands - Alofi, Niue - Vava u, Tonga - Savusavu, Vanua Levi, Fiji - Suva, Viti Levu, Fiji - Dravuni, Fiji - Nuku alofa, Tonga. To set ...

I am an Executive business traveler. We have sailed on 3 other high-end cruise lines with much international travel in my past, we decided to try PG Cruises. We were in absolute disbelief at the quality of this trip from start to finish. Even the luxury travel agents we met onboard said they would advise their contracted clients to CANCEL! Five detailed emails with photos were sent to the VP of ...

I am writing after returning from the 11 night Society and Cook Islands cruise on October 7-18. My husband Eric Demanche and I went on the cruise to celebrate our honeymoon and this cruise was anything but an enjoyable experience. I’ve outlined below some of the issues we had as there were too many to note on the ship’s survey. These are just a small sampling of the issues we had on this cruise ...

This was supposedly a 'luxury' cruise. Terrible! Go Crystal or stay home...or just fly direct to the islands worth seeing. (Contracted by PGcruises) Air Tahiti Nui--AWFUL. First Class is the only tolerable seat on the plane. PG (small, old, run-down, moldy) ship: cheesy staff entertainment, poor service, no A/C in main restaurant (?!?), loud hydraulic machine noises every morning 6:30-7:30am, ...

I would like to share a very negative experience I had with Paul Gauguin a few months ago in the hopes that if you are considering vacationing with them you are well informed about their booking tricks. Paul Gauguin marketed the cruise my wife and I spent our 25th anniversary on as a 7 day - 7 night cruise to the Society Islands. We purchased their Air and Cruise package. This was our first ...

The cruise was very expensive. To start you arrive so late in the evening you really don't have a day, it is about 1/2 hour that the cruise line counts as a day. For what you pay for this cruise, you should have excellent service, excellent food and excellent quality. The ship's condition is poor, the rooms are outdated, old and musty, food is mediocre, and the service is something not to be ...

After careful review of Paul Gauguin (PG), we decided to pay the expense and sail. PG advertised themselves as being a luxury cruise ship and we were expecting greater things than what we received. In planning for the cruise, we were extremely pleased with the service representatives managing their 800 number. They were cheerful, pleasant, and very knowledgeable about the cruise and ports of ...
