Experience the ultimate luxury onboard Paul Gauguin Cruises
The ultra-luxurious Paul Gauguin Cruises operates out of Tahiti, offering cruises around that island, the French Polynesia and other the South Pacific islands. Paul Guaguin is owned by the Pacific Beachcomber resort, which is rated by many as the leader in French Polynesia’s luxury resorts.
Since its inception, Paul Gauguin Cruises has been operating only one ship. That is the distinguished, 5+-star m/s Paul Gauguin; which underwent a 7 million-dollar refurbishment in January 2012. Currently, there are developments underway to introduce a new luxury ship, the Moana; which is set to start sailing in Europe, Latin America the Caribbean waters in December 2012.
As you might imagine, the Moana will be a luxury experience to beat all experiences and I for one, is eagerly anticipating its introduction! Here now is a comprehensive profile of Paul Gauguin Cruises to better prepare you for what to expect when this cruise liner starts operating in the Caribbean.
