I just learned that the Paul Gauguin is now sailing under a new operatior, "Pacific Beachcomber" - effective this month / year!
For the past couple of years, I have given much thought to trying her out and sailing to Tahiti. I've heard many positive things about the Paul Gauguin and Regent Seven Seas.
Pacific Beachcomber is run by a Tahiti hotel developer, and this is there only ship, so far. Interestingly (or not) he is chartering the vessel and crew.
After the Paul Gauguin's refurbishment, I would be interested to see how the service is!
