Paul Gauguin Cruises' Ship - The Paul Gauguin - Recent Refit.

Paul Gauguin Cruises Paul Gauguin Emerges from Refit

It takes a lot of work to keep a ship operating in peak condition—and to make sure that her appointments and décor always provide a pleasing environment for her guests. Periodically, the m/s Paul Gauguin goes into “dry dock”—that is, a platform that is flooded while the ship is loaded onto it, then drained so that maintenance, repairs, and refurbishments can be made.
After guests disembarked The Gauguin's May 15 voyage from Fiji to Bali, the crew sailed the ship on to Singapore, where she went into dry dock for two weeks. During that time, she underwent regular maintenance and updates to ensure that she will continue to operate smoothly. Among these tasks were regular maintenance of stabilizers and thrusters, upgrades to the propulsion system, tank coating, hull painting, fan-room equipment updates, and steel replacement around the ship.
More visible to our guests will be the refurbishment of the public areas, suites, and staterooms. Carpeting was replaced in some areas, and new flooring was installed in the Fitness Center. Furnishings were updated, with furniture reupholstering in L’Etoile, new chairs and tables in La Palette lounge, new chairs in Le Grill, French polishing of stateroom and suite furniture, and new furniture on the Pool Deck.
Other improvements include new wallpaper on Deck 6, the replacement of teak wood on the Pool Deck and in the marina, updates to the stage in La Palette, and new canvas above the door to Le Grill and from Le Grill to La Palette.
These enhancements completed, The Gauguin sailed out of Singapore on June 2 and back into service providing guests with a luxurious environment for exploring the delights of the South Pacific.
