WHY IT RATES: Now through May 12 only, boutique luxury line Paul Gauguin Cruises announced that it’s offering some value-added gifts to both guests and their travel advisors who book select 2023 and 2024 itineraries bound for French Polynesia, Tahiti, Fiji and the South Pacific. — Laurie Baratti
In 2023, The Gauguin Experience – enchanting, carefree and award-winning – is celebrating 25 years of sailing in French Polynesia. As a special gift for travelers, Paul Gauguin Cruises is giving a $250 Air Credit per guest on 25 South Pacific cruises aboard the beloved m/s Paul Gauguin, and a $250 Gift Card to travel advisors for each deposited booking. The exclusive anniversary gifts for guests and advisors are available on select 7- to 14-night itineraries in 2023 and 2024 when air is booked through Paul Gauguin Cruises by May 12, 2023. The all-inclusive cruises offer artfully authentic explorations of the Society Islands, Tuamotus, Marquesas, and Cook Islands.
“In planning the 25th Anniversary of our uniquely enriching and carefree brand of Tahitian discovery, we wanted to share a gift of appreciation to both our guests and our travel partners who have helped establish Paul Gauguin Cruises as the highest-rated luxury line in French Polynesia,” said Navin Sawhney, CEO Americas for Paul Gauguin Cruises and PONANT (the line’s parent company). “The $250 per guest air credit and commemorative occasions on board, as well as the $250 gift card for advisors, allows us to celebrate this milestone year in a meaningful, value-rich way.”
With spacious suites and staterooms – many with a private balcony, a casually elegant contemporary décor evocative of the islands, French- and locally-inspired cuisine, a Marina offering water sports directly from the ship, and the genuinely warm hospitality of our Officers, Staff, and Crew, as well as Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines – a local troupe of Tahitian hosts who live aboard ship, The Gauguin remains French Polynesia’s gold standard in cruising.
