Paul Gauguin Cruises Plans New Fiji-Bali Trips
Always wanted to cruise to Fiji and Bali? Here’s an opportunity: Paul Gauguin Cruises is planning new itineraries for 2017 that begin and end in the two destinations.
This could be a big boost to the country’s tourism industry.
According to USA Today, the South Pacific specialist says it will offer a single sailing in 2017 of a new 16-night itinerary that begins in Lautoka, and ends in Benoa, Bali.
This will include stops in Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu; Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands; Samarai Island, Papua New Guinea; Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea; Merauke, Indonesia; Dili, Timor-Leste; Komodo Island, Indonesia; and Lembar, Lombok Island, Indonesia.
The trip will kick-off on April 29, 2017 and take place on the line’s upscale, 332-passenger Paul Gauguin.
Also new will be a 17-night itinerary on the Paul Gauguin from Benoa, Bali to Fiji that hits all the same stops in reverse. It’ll begin on June 7, 2017.
The Paul Gauguin in 2017 also will offer an array of seven-night sailings out of Tahiti to French Polynesia’s Society Islands, some with stops in the Tuamotus, as it always does, as well as longer trips to the Cook Islands and Marquesas.
The line also is bringing back 12 and 13-night Society Islands, Cook Islands, Tonga and Fiji itineraries for 2017.
