Canadian Residents Savings with Paul Gauguin Cruises

Posted By : Courtney Anderson/ 954 0

Canadian Residents Save 10% to 25% with Paul Gauguin Cruises to Tahiti, French Polynesia through 2019

Designed specifically to glide through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, The Gauguin is the flagship of Paul Gauguin Cruises and a small-ship cruiser’s dream. She delivers travelers to intimate ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships, all the while providing an onboard experience that is nothing short of luxurious. Guests aboard our luxury cruises enjoy spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), an onboard watersports marina, three dining venues, an extensive spa, and five-star service. Life onboard also reflects the beauty and rich cultural heritage of the islands she calls upon, with a warm, friendly feel, informal setting, and even a beloved troupe of Gauguines and Gauguins—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers.

As a resident of Canada, you are eligible to enjoy exclusive savings on select sailings of the deluxe, 332-guest m/s Paul Gauguin. Depending on the voyage you choose, you’ll enjoy savings of 10-25% off standard all-inclusive fares on itineraries to Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific. Plus, roundtrip airfare between Los Angeles and Tahiti is included in your fare!

Space is extremely limited, and at these savings and fills up fast. Reserve today!

Caribbean Escapes from San Juan

Posted By : Courtney Anderson/ 56 0

This is not a cruise. This is taking you deeper into discovery on a tropical coasting, memory boasting seek-athon to the Southern Caribbean. And journey miles away from mainstream where you can make friends with stingrays in St. Kitts. Giddy up for a horseback ride along Antigua’s picturesque shoreline. Explore the hidden world of Harrison’s Cave in Barbados. Or soak in the mineral-rich hot springs of St. Lucia. It all starts from breathtaking San Juan onboard Freedom of the Seas® or Vision of the Seas® — ships full of adventures of their own. From Broadway-style hits to culinary globetrotting, and even a fun-soaked waterpark just for kids. Come Seek the Royal Caribbean®.
