French Polynesia is a diver’s paradise, where translucent, turquoise lagoons are begging to be explored. Join the superior dive team on board the M/S Paul Gauguin, designed specifically to navigate these islands; its small size allows you to visit small ports and shallow lagoons, creating countless opportunities to explore. Since its maiden voyage in 1998, the Gauguin has become the longest continually operating year-round luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific. On board, experience an atmosphere that is at once luxurious and relaxed. Guests have enhanced options available from the state-of-the-art retractable water-sports marina. Join world-renowned oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau on sailings departing May 23, July 11, Nov. 20 and Dec. 1, 2012 (second week hosted). As our special guest, he will offer a series of lectures and accompany several dives. The Gauguin offers voyages from seven to 14 nights, starting from $4,297. Your cruise fare includes airfare from LAX; all-inclusive, five-star-plus amenities; spacious ocean-view accommodations; onboard gratuities, beverages, including select wine and spirits; world-class dining; and 24-hour room service. Third guest in stateroom sails free.
