Paul Gauguin Hospitality

I can't speak highly enough about the staff and crew aboard the MS Paul Gauguin.  This is a luxury vessel that somehow manages to never feel stuffy - Polynesian hospitality at its best!  Our room attendant knew us each by name before we had ever been introduced in person - I was thoroughly impressed and immediately felt at home on board.  I'll list just some of the many ways we were completely won over by the Paul Gauguin crew throughout our 8-day cruise.

You might find a few favorite waiters and always request to be seated at their tables.  For us it was Jaypee & Flo:

The bartenders may come to know your favorite drink and have it ready for you when you walk in the door - for me it was a Manhattan (with extra cherries!):

You might giggle like a school girl around the Les Gauguines performers and learn them each by name and attend every one of their enrichment sessions throughout the week (dance classes, shell bracelet making, Polynesian culture Q&A, musical performances).  We were their biggest fans:
