Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the m/s Paul Gauguin, will offer the Ambassadors of the Environment Family Program free, a value of US$329 per child, on the December 21, 2016, 7-night Tahiti & the Society Islands holiday voyage.
Jean-Michel Cousteau and his Ocean Futures Society created the Ambassadors Program, which is a unique, groundbreaking program that introduces young travellers (ages 9-17) to the extraordinary natural wonders of French Polynesia through direct, hands-on, interactive learning. Under the guidance of expert Ocean Futures Society naturalists, this flexible program lets parents and children alike pick and choose from a suite of onboard activities and daily excursions that reveal the natural wonders and rich culture of Polynesia by land and sea. Adults are encouraged to join in for the additional cost of the excursions.
The 7-night Tahiti & the Society Islands holiday cruise departs Papeete, Tahiti, and sails to Huahine, Taha’a (Motu Mahana), Bora Bora (overnight), and Moorea (overnight) in the Society Islands. In addition to cruising to beautiful islands in French Polynesia and highlighting Polynesian culture, this voyage features complimentary access to Paul Gauguin Cruises’ two exclusive retreats—Motu Mahana, an islet off the coast of Taha’a, and a private beach in Bora Bora.
