Why These Staterooms Are The Best In The Luxury Cruise Market


Paul Gauguin Cruises, with itineraries offered in the South Pacific and the Caribbean, offer some of the best stateroom options on the seas today. There are many luxury cruises to choose from, but Paul Gauguin is special in that their niche of the Polynesian Islands has allowed them to understand their destinations and guests better than any other. They have built their rooms to match their ports of call, by way of incorporating colors, textures and art from the South Pacific that helps to immerse their guests in what can be a transformative travel experience.

Offering nine categories of rooms, Paul Gauguin’s standard rooms are enough to put even the best on other ships to shame. Outfitted with comfortable and spacious beds, polished mahogany wood furnishings and accented with flowing fabrics over the outdoor veranda – anyone would find comfort here.


I recently experienced a Category “C” room, which holds two guests. I packed for an army and was surprised that I could neatly and comfortably store everything I brought. Light sweaters, pants, 10 pairs of shoes, swimwear and beauty products – they all fit perfectly, with room to spare. The bathrooms are large by cruise ship standards, and are well appointed. Twice per day my room and bathroom were refreshed. Fruit came daily, as well as a small appetizer from the chef before dinnertime – a lovely touch.


Paul Gauguin offers suites as well, large enough to make your jaw drop. But, no matter which category chosen, you are guaranteed luxury. No inside, airless rooms here. Without a view of daily sunrises and sunsets, why else would you want to sail the South Pacific?
