South Pacific cruise operator Paul Gauguin Cruises has debuted its 2018 Tahiti, French Polynesia, & the South Pacific brochure.
The colorful 72-page brochure takes a travel magazine approach, with rich destination content and beautiful imagery that celebrate Polynesian culture and introduce and educate audiences about Paul Gauguin Cruises and the voyages offered, the cruise line said.
The brochure can be viewed online and showcases a variety of dream cruises, day-by-day itineraries, maps, highlights, and fares. The Gauguin experience, fleet distinctions, dining venues, private retreats, entertainment options, special occasions, activities, local culture, shore excursions, SCUBA diving and watersports options, pre- and post-cruise hotel programs, deck plans, and sailing schedule are also highlighted.
New for 2018 is the seven-night Society Islands & Tahiti Iti itinerary, which starts and ends in Papeete, Tahiti, and visits Huahine, Society Islands; Motu Mahana (off the coast of Taha’a), Society Islands; Bora Bora, Society Islands (overnight); Moorea, Society Islands; and Vairao, Tahiti Iti. Paul Gauguin Cruises said it is the only cruise line that sails to Tahiti Iti, which offers rugged cliffs, waterfalls, beaches, and the famous wave of Teahupo’o.
The Gauguin’s 2018 sailing schedule also includes its signature voyages which showcase a host of islands with white-sand beaches, lagoons, mountains, and warm Polynesian culture. Itineraries include: seven-night Tahiti & the Society Islands; 10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus; 11-night Cook Islands & Society Islands; and 14-night Marquesas, Tuamotus & Society Islands.
Additionally in 2018, Paul Gauguin Cruises’ partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) continues, providing two interactive, educational programs to enrich guests’ experience on board. During the summer months and holiday season, Stewards of Nature is offered and invites children and teens ages seven to 17, as well as their families, to discover and value nature through hands-on interactive learning. The Wildlife Discovery Series is an onboard lecture program focusing on the environment and wildlife of our planet, presented by some of the world’s most fascinating conservationists, scientists, and oceanographers.
On all sailings, guests also receive complimentary access to Paul Gauguin Cruises’ two exclusive retreats. Off the coast of Taha’a lies the islet of Motu Mahana for enjoying a day of watersports, Polynesian activities, a sumptuous barbecue feast, and cocktails from full and floating bars. In Bora Bora, guests can relax on a private, white-sand beach and enjoy refreshments, a game of volleyball, and snorkeling in crystal-clear waters.
Paul Gauguin Cruises is currently offering savings of 50 percent off standard all-inclusive cruise fares on all 2018 voyages, plus included roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles.
