Paul Gauguin to cruise from Brisbane after drydock

Paul Gauguin to cruise from Brisbane after drydock
The Tahiti-based 332-passenger Paul Gauguin will be at the Forgacs drydock in Brisbane from January 15 until January 25 next year for a water treatment upgrade to meet environmental requirements.

The 19,200gt boutique liner that was purpose-built for cruising French Polynesia and is operated by Richard Bailey’s Pacific Beachcomber will leave Brisbane on January 26 on a repositioning cruise to Papeete via Noumea, Suva, Savusavu, Vava’u, Aitutaki, Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea.

She arrives in Papeete on the evening of February 10 and passengers disembark the following morning.

Paul Gauguin Cruises has packaged the cruise for the American market with a three-night stay in Sydney at the Four Seasons Hotel with daily breakfasts and air travel from Sydney to join the ship in Brisbane.

Fares for the ‘South Pacific Discovery’ tour are from US$7,497 and include free air travel from Los Angeles.

Past passengers who book by May 31 receive double Paul Gauguin Society savings.

Cruise-only fares are available.
