Paul Gauguin cruise
top 5 onboard activities




Food and beverages

There are no assigned restaurant seats or sittings. All three restaurants have open-seating. You make the choices of when, where and with whom you dine. Note: Although dinner reservations are required for two of the restaurants, you can specify your time, date, and type of table preferences.

The two high-end restaurants are L'Etoile and La Veranda.

L'Etoile is open for dinner only. Reservations are not required. It serves international dishes (vegetarian, healthy-choice, and special-diet dishes are also available). Click the link below to see its extensive and interesting menu choices.

Dinner menu selections

La Veranda is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At night, it specializes in French cuisine - and seating is by reservations only

One evening each cruise, both La Veranda and L'Etoile serve a special Polynesian dinner, with music and decorations.

The third restaurant is Le Grill, a casual open-air affair located on one of the top decks. It offers a buffet-style breakfast and lunch. At night, it transforms itself into a waiter-service bistro with a changing ethnic theme - seating is by reservations only.

Room service is 24/7 and prompt. You can order off a restaurant menu during meal periods. Lighter fare is available during the other hours.

Afternoon Tea is served in a room with a panoramic view.

Enjoy pre- and post-dinner cocktails in the Piano Bar.

Or have them in Le Grand Salon where you can dance and listen to a cabaret soloist backed by the talented Siglo band.

Or sip your drinks in the indoor-outdoor La Palette. It's great for sunset watching and late-night dancing.
