WHY IT RATES: The Moana Explorer program is yet another way for families to create lasting memories together during their vacation with Paul Gauguin Cruises. -Codie Liermann, Associate Editor
Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the m/s Gauguin, is offering the Moana Explorer program-a new way for families to explore Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific together during summer and holiday voyages.
In partnership with Te mana o te moana, a South Pacific marine education and conservation foundation, the Moana Explorer program invites children and teens, ages seven to 15, to discover and value the natural wonders of the South Pacific through hands-on, interactive learning on board and ashore.
Every day of the voyage there is a combination of naturalist-led island and/or beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games and other adventures. Depending on the itinerary, children and teens might explore underwater life, conduct water experiments, create natural jewelry, go on a treasure hunt, learn about Tahitian culture, discover island legends and geology, design a Polynesian tattoo and more.
The Moana Explorer program is available on the following voyages in 2019:
7-Night Tahiti & the Society Islands
