Paul Gauguin cruise
top 5 onboard activities

#4 and #5



Pool swimming and lounging

Attendants will bring you drinks and food. Or, you can visit the conveniently adjacent Pool Bar or Le Grill restaurant.

You can almost always find an empty pool-side lounge chair any time of the day.

On most cruise ships, people leave items on lounge chairs to "own" them during their long absences. This custom is discouraged on the Paul Gauguin.


Symbolic Polynesian wedding

Les Gauguines conduct a vow-renewing Polynesian wedding ceremony for honeymooners and anniversary celebrants. It's symbolic, but an emotionally moving and delightful experience.

Attendees are greeted with champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Entertainment includes a slow, sinuous love dance performed by a Les Gauguines member.

As is in a traditional Tahitian wedding, a couple is crowned with floral tiaras and wrapped in a quilted Tahitian blanket. The winsome honeymooners in the photo above are Lauren and Brian Morgan from Toronto, Canada.

First the newlyweds partake. Next come the anniversary couples, in order of anniversary years, which ranged on my visit from 5 to 55.
