A few months ago, when I was having a difficult time dealing with the stress of mental illness with my son, I decided to book a trip. This is what I tend to do when I’m fed up, and need a break.
I have always been fascinated by the Paul Gauguin ship to Tahiti, Bora Bora and the Society islands of French Polynesia, so why not find out more about the ship.
I was curious if they offered “no single supplement” fares and was surprised to hear that they do offer cabins for solo singles travelling. Here is a recent list of their trips with no single supplement. I started my research watching You Tube videos describing the Paul Gauguin ship and the islands I’ll be visiting during my 10-day cruise.
The ship only has 330 guests and 209 crew members. It has 165 staterooms and suites and a spa and 3 restaurants. What I am looking forward to is the exclusivity, the all inclusive program, all drinks and tips are included and only the excursions are extra.
What’s included on the Paul Gauguin cruise?
- All shipboard meals, in your choice of venues
- Complimentary 24-hour room service
- Complimentary beverages, including select wines and spirits, beers, soft drinks, bottled water, and hot beverages served throughout the ship
- In-room refrigerator replenished daily with soft drinks, beer, and bottled water
- All shipboard entertainment, including our troupe of Polynesian performers and live music in the evenings
- Presentations by onboard experts, and select sailings feature guest hosts
- Onboard gratuities for room stewards, dining and bar staff
- Watersports, including complimentary kayaking and paddleboarding from our marina or destination beaches
- Complimentary snorkel gear for use throughout the cruise
- Use of our secluded, white-sand beach in Bora Bora*
- A day on our private islet, Motu Mahana, off the coast of Taha’a, featuring snorkeling, watersports, a barbecue, full bar service, and Polynesian hospitality (on select voyages)
- Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the ship

So this morning I landed in Papeete, Tahiti, and this afternoon, I board the Paul Gauguin and will update you on my impressions. I hope you follow my adventure on this gorgeous ship.
