Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the Paul Gauguin, and the newly acquired Tere Moana, is taking part in “The World’s Largest Cruise Sale” during National Cruise Vacation Week (NCVW) October 21-27, 2012.

This annual opportunity of exceptional savings is hosted by Cruise Lines International (CLIA), the world’s largest cruise industry organization.  Paul Gauguin Cruises will offer agents who sign up and participate in the promotion a $100 per-person shipboard credit for new bookings on The Gauguin and The Moana in addition to cruise savings when booked by November 18, 2012.

Paul Gauguin Cruises is also offering savings of 50% off standard all-inclusive cruise fares on all voyages of both ships, plus included airfare from Los Angeles on French Polynesia itineraries. Past guests of The Gauguin receive an additional savings of 5% off cruise fares aboard either vessel, as a member of the Paul Gauguin Society.

NCVW is the centerpiece of October’s National Cruise Vacation Month, with 25 member cruise lines participating in CLIA’s biggest promotion of 2012. More than 5,000 travel agencies in the U.S. and Canada are expected to take part through special events, including online travel agency promotions, NCVW mini-sites, and special in-person travel agent events such as Cruise Nights at travel agencies and in partnership with other local businesses.
