The 332-passenger Paul Gauguin, which cruises from Tahiti to French Polynesia and the South Pacific, has undergone a $7 million renovation, the largest rehab in the ship’s 14-year history.


Officials of Paul Gauguin Cruises say the project took place during a recent 10-night crossing from Tahiti to Brisbane, Australia, as well during an 11-night dry dock at an Australian shipyard.


The renovations focused on both interior and exterior areas of the vessel and included new flooring, lighting, window treatments and furnishings. According to Seatrade Insider, the ship’s environmental systems were also upgraded.


Tweaks were made to the ship’s restaurants. The entrance of Le Veranda was redesigned, furnishings refinished and new solar shades added. The entrance of fancy L’Etoile was also redesigned with video equipment added for conferences. Le Grill was updated with a new buffet area and decorative partitions and divider walls.


New teak railings on balconies and new bathroom flooring were among enhancements to the ship’s staterooms and suites.


Built-in banquettes were added to offer additional seating on the Promenade Deck and the ship’s casino, Le Casino, was expanded. Among other upgrades, the dance floors of Le Grand Salon and La Palette were refurbished.
