we are looking to take our high school age boys on a big trip this summer and we have very much enjoyed cruises in the past..is the paul g a cruise for adults only ? or suitable for kids as well? any and all comments are appreciated . thanx.
It all depends on why the teenagers want to go. If it is for "party time" they probbly won't find it there. But if it is to enjoy the same water activities and sights we all enjoy, they will have the time of their lives. We've cruised the PG three times, and there were always some teens. They were there for the same reasons as we were, had a great time, and neither encountered or created any problems.
Having sailed on the Paul Gauguin in Tahiti previously I can honestly say that you won't find many kids onboard. The kids onboard our cruise (it was in August, so it was still school break) were very young, under 10.
There are no scheduled activities for kids on the ship, however there are some activities offered by Les Gauguins that the kids can join in. For example, when you sail into Cook's Bay in Moorea that morning the Les Gauguins have a special dance presentation where anyone can join in and get lessons, plus they teach anyone interested how to make necklaces! You'll also find board games available in the library/card room.
Plus, the itinerary has such much time in port that I'm sure you'll keep them occupied taking excursions ashore.
