Paul Gauguin Cruise Ship

In January of 2019 I was fortunate to get the opportunity to cruise French Polynesia, in the South Pacific on board the outstanding luxury ship, the Paul Gauguin. This amazing vessel hold 300 passengers. The crew was the best I have ever encountered on a cruise.

We sailed from Papeete Tahiti with ports of call in Huahine, Taha'a, 2 days in Bora Bora, 2 days in Moorea and finished up back in Papeete.

The beaches, especially on Bora Bora, are stunningly beautiful. We were able to visit a Pearl Farm, see how vanilla bean is grown and harvested, enjoy the displays of luscious tropical flowers, enjoyed native handcrafts and the local markets.

This is a destination and cruise I will be experiencing again!
