French Polynesian cruise operator Paul Gauguin will welcome their second ship, the Moana, in December this year.
Vice president, product planning and revenue management Oscar Abello met with industry last week to discuss the new ship and the recent renovations on the m/s Paul Gauguin.
Specialising in European, Caribbean and Latin America destinations, the Moana will undergo a complete renovation to accommodate 90 guests before setting sail on her maiden cruise under the Paul Gauguin.
Being a smaller ship with just 45 full ocean view, balcony staterooms, the Moana can deliver unique itineraries that larger boats can not throughout the sailed regions.
The intimate ship has a crew to guest ration of one to 1.5 and carries the inclusions expected from a Paul Gauguin ship.
Mr Abello also spoke about the success of the renovations of South Pacific cruise ship, m/s Paul Gauguin.
In February this year, the reveal of a $7 million renovation was the largest in the ship’s 14 year history.
The renovation took place during a 10 night cruise from Tahiti to Brisbane, where it was followed by an 11 night dry dock.
