Cruise

Honeymoons on the High Seas

written by | Posted on June 1st, 2009

Very few spots in the world rival Polynesia for sheer romantic flair, and spending a special time while cruising on the Gauguin, the most luxurious ship to sail in Tahiti and environs on a year-round basis, will make any marriage start off on the right foot.

Regent limits passengers to 332, most of whom debark saying that nothing has looked better than the South Pacific while sailing on the Gauguin.

The cruise begins in Papeete, Tahiti, and for the next week visits the coral atolls of Raiatea and Tahaa, including overnight stays in Bora Bora and Moorea. Life on board is relaxed yet elegant, spiced with great food prepared by one of France’s top-rated chefs and perfectly served with impeccable courtesy and style.

Prices begin at $2,395 pp, not including airfare, making it one of the best bargains on the market, a cruise where, indeed, the moon glows with the color of honey.
