It may have taken 12-months longer than first anticipated, but Paul Gauguin Cruises has confirmed the facelift of the M/S Paul Gauguin luxury cruise ship in Singapore.
In March last year, LATTE Cruise revealed the ship had been scheduled to receive an upgrade that month. The project was subsequently halted due to the escalating pandemic.
Last week, Paul Gauguin Cruises confirmed The Gauguin’s drydock had concluded on 9 March 2021, with upgrade works still ongoing.
The vision of the renovation was to enhance The Gauguin‘s Polynesian signature with a “chic and fresh style to enrich guests’ experience sailing the islands of Tahiti, French Polynesia, Fiji and the South Pacific”, the cruise line said.
The Gauguin is outfitted with a look designed by Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel that evokes South Seas elegance and the islands that the iconic ship sails. The refurbishment enhances the historical interior of the vessel made of warm and dark woodworks and strengthens the local identity. The fresh palette incorporates lagoon shades, a wide range of green and natural tones, warm colour touches, organic patterns and woven textiles.
All The Gauguin‘s staterooms and suites, as well as the public spaces, were renovated: Le Grand Salon, three restaurants, Piano Bar, La Palette Lounge, Spa and Salon, Boutique, Pool Deck, and Reception area.
The ship enhancement has seen the introduction of three new Owner’s Suites (Category OS) and top-of-the-line Tiara Suite (TS) and the stern of the vessel on Deck 7.
To accompany The Gauguin‘s renovation, amenities were enhanced for a full guest experience. Complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi is being introduced and a virtual museum of over 150 paintings of artist Paul Gauguin will go on display. These new enhancements will provide guests of The Gauguin an even more luxurious, all-inclusive experience.
