Paul Gauguin Cruises’ New 2013 Brochure Features 19 Itineraries
Paul Gauguin Cruises’ 2013 Voyages by Gauguin Preview Brochure features 19 itineraries with visits to 22 countries and 73 ports by the cruise line’s two small luxury ships -- the 332-passenger Paul Gauguin, and the 90-passenger Tere Moana, which the company will launch in December.
The Paul Gauguin sails French Polynesia and the South Pacific year-round, while the Moana will offer voyages in Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America. The Paul Gauguin’s French Polynesia itineraries range from seven to 14 nights and visit Tahiti, the Society Islands, the Tuamotus, the Cook Islands and Society Islands and the Marquesas Islands.
Meanwhile, the Moana will offer seven-night Caribbean cruises in December and March, with departures from St. Martin to the British Virgin Islands and St. Kitts and Nevis. In January and February, the Moana will offer 13- and 14-night Latin American cruises featuring Panama Canal transits and calls in Colombia and Costa Rica. The Moana will offer European sailings to the Black Sea, Greek Isles, Dalmatian Coast and the French and Italian Rivieras, with transits of the Corinth Canal.
From April through November, the Moana operates a variety of European voyages. Highlights include seven-night cruises in the Black Sea and Greek Isles, a roundtrip Spanish Coast voyage, and scenic sailings along Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and French and Italian Rivieras. Three special voyages transit Greece’s Corinth Canal -- a one-of-kind engineering marvel. The brochure also details the Paul Gauguin fleet’s dining venues, entertainment, activities, destination guides, itineraries, deck plans.
The company is offering savings of 50 percent off standard cruise fares on all voyages of both ships, plus free airfare from Los Angeles on French Polynesia itineraries. Past Paul Gauguin guests enjoy additional savings of 5 percent off cruise fares aboard either vessel. Also, guests who book select departures by Sept. 1, 2012, will receive twice the Paul Gauguin Society past-guest benefit, for a total savings of 10 percent off their cruise fare.
