Paul Gauguin Cruises announce $7 million renovation

Paul Gauguin Cruises has announced their luxury ship MS Paul Gauguin will undergo its largest renovation in its 14-year history. Due for completion in January 2012, the renovation is expected to cost $7 million and will enhance both the exterior and interior of the ship.

Renovation work will take place during the ships 10-night voyage from Tahiti to Brisbane and during an 11-night dry-dock in Brisbane. Work will include new carpets fitted to all staterooms and suites, refinished furniture, new bathroom flooring and teak railings for all the balconies. New carpets and furniture will be installed throughout the ship as well as new decorative wall panels and window treatment to give the ship a much lighter and brighter feel.

All three of the onboard restaurants will also receive modern touches. La Veranda will offer guests a modernised entrance in addition to new indoor and outdoor refinished furniture. Le Grill will have new decorative partitions and divider walls, and a stylish buffet area with updated lighting. L’Etoile will also receive a redesigned entrance and video equipment for seminars.

On promenade Deck 5, there will be a new built-in banquette and the casino in Le Casino will be extended. The lounge, Le Palette, will feature a decorative stone band across the front of the bar, new outdoor furniture and a state-of-the-art lighting system and venue Le Grand Salon will boast a new dance floor.

Guests onboard the South Pacific Discovery voyage that departs on January 26, 2012 will be the first to experience the newly refurbished and decorated Ms Paul Gauguin.
