Regent Completes Paul Gauguin $6 Million Renovation

Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Paul Gauguin has completed a $6 million renovation, including a new casino, piano bar and five additional staterooms with aft-facing private balconies.

The ship, which has been managed since 1997 by Regent Seven Seas Cruises, has resumed sailing in Tahiti and the South Pacific under a contract that will be in effect through the end of 2008.

The new staterooms bring the total number of staterooms with balconies to more than 50%. New soft goods, seating and carpeting were added throughout public areas and the officers’ quarters were redecorated.

The Paul Gauguin sails weekly roundtrip cruises from Papeete, Tahiti, on Saturdays, calling in Raiatea, Tahaa (for a visit to RSSC’s private island, Motu Mahana), Bora Bora and Moorea (with two full days in each of the latter two ports).

Longer Itineraries
The ship will also offer several longer itineraries this year, including two, 14-night Marquesas cruises; one 14-night Cook and Society Islands, Australs and Tuamotus sailing; three 11-night Society Islands, Tuamotus and Marquesas cruises; three 10-night Society Islands and Tuamotus sailings; and two 9-night Society Islands holiday cruises which include calls at Huahine.

Select departures of the Paul Gauguin’s 7-, 10-, and 14-night sailings will feature an optional 7-night post-cruise land program, including three nights in Auckland, New Zealand and four nights in Sydney, Australia, priced from $1,795 per person, double occupancy.

New shore excursions include the Capture Moorea Photo Adventure, Botanical and Agricultural Walk and Sunset Sail Aboard the Margouillat from Moorea; Clear Kayak Safari to Motu Ofetaro from Raiatea and the overnight Romantic Escapade at Bora Bora Pearl Beach.

The Gauguin’s “Ambassadors of the Environment” program for young cruisers ages nine to 15, presented in conjunction with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, will be offered on the June 10 to Aug. 23 sailings.

The program includes interactive experiences with and education about marine and island ecosystems, emphasizing the importance of coral reefs, sustainable lifestyles and traditional Polynesian culture.
