Paul Gauguin Cruises’ new Tere Moana’s will debut in the Caribbean
In December 2012, a second luxury ship, The Moana, will begin sailing under the Paul Gauguin Cruises banner. Scheduled to undergo a multifaceted renovation to be completed that month, The Moana will accommodate just 90 guests and will reflect the high standard of quality and service already established for the cruise line by the m/s Paul Gauguin.
The Moana (Tahitian for Ocean Traveler) was built in 1998 at the Alstom Leroux in St Malo, France. The ship is 330 ft in length with a 46 ft beam. The renovations include:
- New décor, including flooring, window treatments, and wall panels
- New furnishings and lighting
- Updated public areas, including Le Salon and the ship’s two elegant restaurants
- New signage, providing a lighter, brighter feel
The Moana specializes in European, Caribbean, and Latin American destinations, with an emphasis on delivering unique itineraries that larger ships cannot offer and exploring hidden ports throughout these regions. Spacious staterooms, an onboard watersports marina, a choice of two open-seating venues, and extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. There is simply no better way to experience Europe, the Caribbean, or Latin America than aboard this sleek and sophisticated, intimate ship
