An Overwater Bungalow that Sails

Daily Travel Dose LLC became an accredited partner of Paul Gauguin Cruises at the end of last year. Why? After my visit to French Polynesia, I realized that a cruise is the best way to visit this dream vacation. I visited 3 different islands (Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora) in 7 days and came back with an incredible feeling of relaxation. So what could possibly make this extraordinary trip even greater?

I think a few things: no need to pay for inter-island airfare, not breaking the bank for food, drinks and worry about gratuities, not having to constantly unpack and re-pack when island hopping and having some more evening entertainment when the sun has set.

To me going to the incredibly beautiful destination of French Polynesia is all about becoming one with a no-stress environment. An environment that let's you get back to being you, all while smelling the sweet Tiare flower scent. I am going to be honest that this destination is not for everyone, but it may be perfect for some. If you love hassle-free, luxurious, relaxing journeys with a gorgeous natural backdrop, wonderful food and hospitality, then an award-winning Paul Gauguin Cruise is definitely the way to visit these magical islands.

The m/s Paul Gauguin was specifically made to sail these islands, so it is a smaller ship. Small enough that it will take you to a private beach in Bora Bora and the private motu (island) Mahana for a barbecue lunch...oh and a floating bar, and kayaking, paddle boarding...but let's not get carried away now.

Foodie? Gourmet food using local ingredients is included and menus are artfully designed by some of the world's best chefs. Being originally from Europe, food is incredibly important to me, and French Polynesia has delectable food to offer. I am still not over how amazing the grapefruit and pineapple was :)

As a Paul Gauguin cruise has so much to offer, I will just list a few important values for you:

Included airfare from Los Angeles, round trip airport/pier transfers, all meals included + complimentary 24 hour room service, select beverages included (wine, beer, spirits), gratuities included, evening entertainment, complimentary snorkeling gear, paddle boards, kayaks, two land excursions included (visit to private beach in Bora Bora and visit Mahana private island), 332 guests, 70 % of staterooms have a private balcony, all have ocean view, access to the fitness center and a chance to rejuvenate at the wellness spa.
