Last March 2017, I embarked on a Paul Gauguin cruise-7 day Tahiti and Society Islands.
We started from Papeete, Tahiti where I stayed one night pre cruise at the Tahiti Pearl Bearch Resort. We sailed from Papeete to Huahine, TaHa’a (Motu Mahana), Bora Bora, Moorea and back to Tahiti, I stayed another night at the Tahiti Pearl Beach Resort. It was the experience of a lifetime. I met many nice people and did a few shore excursions-swimming with lemon sharks and stingrays, and tons of snorkeling.
I must say the crew/staff on board were outstanding!! Although this ship is a smaller one, the crew have big hearts! They were genuine and we shared happy times while on board. The food and dining was one of the best I have had on a cruise ship. The entertainment was also very good – it was wonderful to be treated to local entertainment, really made you feel at home.
There was SO much beautiful scenery no matter where we were, I felt I was dreaming.
I would definitely sail on the Paul Gauguin again! I had such a wonderful time. I really would like to go again for longer this time and to explore some of the other islands in this paradise!
