Paul Gauguin exceeded my expectations and totally blew me away with the exceptional service by the entire crew and staff.

From the first minute you step onto the ship there is a warm welcoming atmosphere! The crew is incredible! Service and food is top notch!!! 

The best cruise experience we have ever had. We felt welcome from the moment we reached the dock. Our cabin was well designed and comfortable.

The service and information available to us in preparation for the trip was superb. Each phone call was extremely helpful and thorough. Even at the Airport in LA they had a very gracious representative who welcomed us.
