Paul Gauguin Celebrations

Celebrate Your Love In Paradise

Posted By : Courtney Anderson/ 505 0

Designed specifically to glide through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, Paul Gauguin Cruises flagship, The Gauguin is 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

A South Pacific voyage on The Gauguin is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, a wedding, renewal of vows, anniversary—or simply each other. Take in the beauty of French Polynesia from the privacy of your suite or stateroom, sway to the sounds of a chanteuse at La Palette Lounge, explore paradise on excursions by land and sea, dine al fresco under a starry sky, and enjoy a Polynesian blessing ceremony performed by members of Les Gauguines and Les Gauguins—the ship’s own troupe of Polynesian entertainers. The Gauguin is renowned for the extra touches and attention to detail that make every occasion special.

Wedding ceremony† and renewal of vows packages allows you to celebrate your love in a romantic setting amid the sparkling lagoons and exotic islands of French Polynesia. Choices include Motu Mahana, the cruise line’s private islet off the coast of Taha’a, and the luxurious InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa.

Sailing on The Gauguin to celebrate your honeymoon? Paul Gauguin has a Gift Registry, where you can choose a “wish list” of gifts, ranging from shore excursions to spa options. Friends and family can visit the registry quickly and conveniently to select the gift (or gifts) they would like to give, and Paul Gauguin Cruises will take care of the rest.

Princess Cruises Celebrates Romance Month With an Assortment of Offerings for Couples. Best Cruise Line for Romance Features Honeymoon Gift Registry App, Online Wedding Planner and More

SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Princess Cruises has long been a leader in romance, setting the standard for love on the high seas – from serving as the ocean-going co-star of “The Love Boat” TV series, to being the first cruise line to offer weddings at sea. In celebration of this official month of romance Princess Cruises makes it even easier for couples to plan their weddings and honeymoon with the latest tools – a Honeymoon Gift Registry App and online Wedding Planner tool.

During the planning phase, the line’s digital Wedding Planner will streamline the planning process, providing wedding couples the opportunity to choose, plan and purchase their wedding package and reception options from the convenience of their computer or smartphone. The tool helps take the stress out of planning with online guidance and a personal wedding coordinator along with easy-to-use tools.

In addition to planning tools, couples celebrate romance on Princess Cruises for the 380 destination it sails. Princess Cruises earlier this year partnered with Wakefield Research to survey 1,000 U.S. adults about what the ultimate romantic vacation would be – the majority of respondents’ (55%) chose a cruise to the Caribbean.

“Weddings, honeymoons and vow renewals are among the top celebrations that take place onboard in the Shops of Princess,” notes Celebration Ambassador and “Love Boat” star Jill Whelan. “A cruise provides the ideal setting to connect with the one you love and celebrate romance.”

To continue to aid in the process, Princess Cruises also enables couples to create their own Honeymoon website with the Honeymoon Gift Registry App. Available on their IOS device, couples can add items, send out RSVPs, upload photos and more. The wedding website, blog, online photo album, RSVP and Save the Date features can also be shared on social media through the new app. Additionally, the gift registry also allows guests to gift money for the couple to spend on their cruise rather than traditional household items.

This summer Princess is also partnering with Effy, featuring flawlessly made, trend-driven pieces designed by jeweler Effy Hematian, to offer couples the chance to win a cruise for two to the Caribbean, as well as jewelry for the winners. Guests can enter to win the Set Sail for Effy’s Romance Sweepstakes throughout August. Effy jewelry can be found in The Shops of Princess across the fleet, offering guests the opportunity to explore and purchase the fine jewelry during their special moments at sea.

Princess Cruises makes special occasions even more meaningful with its curated celebrations packages and experiences. In addition to weddings, Princess has many ways to celebrate anniversaries, honeymoons, vow renewals and more with onboard romance packages.
