We are Thrilled to Receive a Travel Weekly Magellan Award

October 15, 2012

Our goal is always to provide our guests with an extraordinary cruise experience. We’re heartened when guests tell us that they’ve always wanted to cruise with us because of our stellar reputation.  And, we are delighted when they tell us after their voyage that this was the best cruise they have ever been on.  We are always looking at ways to make Paul Gauguin Cruises even better, from the m/s Paul Gauguin’s recent multimillion-dollar renovation to the launch of our new ship, the m/v Tere Moana this December.  

It is also nice to be recognized within the travel industry for our efforts. We recently received word that The Gauguin had earned a 2012 Travel Weekly Silver Magellan Award in the Small Cruise Ship category. Travel Weekly is recognized as one of the most important and influential sources of news, data, and commentary to the travel industry.


The publication’s Magellan Awards is its premier awards program and represents the best in the industry, honoring a broad range of industry segments including hotels and resorts, travel destinations, cruise lines, online travel services, airlines and airports, travel agents and agencies, tour operators, and car rental companies. We are humbled and honored to have received this recognition. Check out the full list of winners at www.travelweeklyawards.com or in the October 15, 2012, issue of Travel Weekly magazine.
