Exciting news from Paul Gauguin Cruises: You can now get a sneak peek at the newest addition to the luxury fleet - the 90-guest Tere Moana. Artist renderings of Tere Moana have been released (see deck rendering to the right). The ship will launch on December 29, 2012 after a multimillion-dollar renovation, revealing a new Polynesian look from the keel up.
Each of the 45 new staterooms will have a private balcony, ocean view, queen-size bed, flatscreen TV, DVD/CD player and refrigerator replenished daily with soft drinks, beer, and bottled water. Fine linens, high quality bath products, feather-down duvets, robes and cotton slippers will help to ensure a comfortable stay.
Upscale dining venues, L'Etoile and La Veranda, will craft cuisine using fresh ingredients from local markets at destination ports along the way. Guests can sip cocktails and enjoy live piano music at Le Salon or head to the Deep Nature Spa for a signature spa treatment. Watersports such as kayaking and paddleboarding will be offered at select ports.
Some all-inclusive voyages aboard Tere Moana include:
- December and March - 7-night Caribbean voyages from St. Martin, visiting a mix of islands in the French West Indies, British Virgin Islands, and St. Kitts & Nevis.
- January and February - 13- and 14-night Panama Canal cruises feature a classic transit of the canal and a unique itinerary that includes Cartagena, Columbia, and the wildlife reserves of Costa Rica.
- April through November - The Tere Moana operates a variety of European voyages. During spring and fall, 14-night transatlantic crossings are offered between Europe and the Caribbean.
