Paul Gauguin Cruises & Air Tahiti Nui Partner To Create Luxurious South Pacific Prize Puzzle Package for Wheel of Fortune "Fan Favorites" Week

NEW YORK, NY – May 8, 2023 – French Polynesia’s two premier travel brands—Paul Gauguin Cruises, the award-winning leader in exploring French Polynesia and the South Pacific, and Air Tahiti Nui, the flagship carrier of French Polynesia —have come together during their shared 25th Anniversary year to provide prizing for all five nights’ Prize Puzzle rounds during Wheel of Fortune’s Fan Favorites week, May 8-12, 2023.

Winners of the Prize Puzzle round during the week of shows will win a luxurious all-inclusive dream vacation for two in the South Pacific, featuring a 7-night Tahiti & Society Islands cruise aboard the enchanting m/s Paul Gauguin—voted the number one small-ship ocean cruise line in Travel + Leisure’s recent World’s Best Awards—coupled with roundtrip air travel to Papeete, Tahiti from Los Angeles or Seattle aboard Air Tahiti Nui’s fleet of 787 Dreamliners.

“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Air Tahiti Nui during our shared 25th Anniversary year to offer the prize puzzle on Wheel of Fortune for an entire week,” said Susan Robison, General Manager, Sales & Marketing for Paul Gauguin Cruises. “As one of the most popular and longest-running game shows on television, Wheel of Fortune has more than 9 million viewers a night, presenting us with an exciting opportunity to showcase The Gauguin’s artful authenticity and all-inclusive luxury to travelers dreaming of romance, family experiences, and adventure in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.”

“At Air Tahiti Nui, we take great joy in sharing the beauty and magic of Tahiti with the world—and hosting travelers in the utmost comfort with our signature Polynesian hospitality,” said Caroline Borawski, Vice President, The Americas, at Air Tahiti Nui. “Our Dreamliners are not just state- of-the-art airplanes, they are the gateway to truly special and unforgettable experiences.”

Cruising roundtrip from Papeete, The Gauguin’s Tahiti & the Society Islands itinerary is the perfect introduction to the picturesque charms of the South Pacific, where the ship is like an overwater bungalow that enjoys overnight stays in Bora Bora, Moorea, and Papeete, and also visits Huahine, known as a lush “Garden of Eden,” as well as the line’s own private islet called Motu Mahana near Taha’a.
