Just named one of the "10 Best New Cruise Itineraries of 2014" by Fodor's Travel, this unique voyage on board Paul Gaugin Cruises charts a course to popular as well as undiscovered ports. Vanuatu is featured in the planning and itinerary options for passengers, as being an island chain that inspired James A. Michener’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Tales of the South Pacific. The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti, French Polynesia, and Southeast Asia, visiting small ports that larger ships can't reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Pacific Seas. This week on Tuesday, the 153m long MS Paul Gaugin moored at Vila Wharf disembarking 300 passengers to browse through town, try some of the restaurants and tours.
The ship which has 217 crew workers, offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort, and luxury. Suites are spacious with private balconies (more than 70%), there is an onboard watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa among her luxurious attributes.
