September 1 2012
LOS ANGELES – Bora Bora, with its world famous lagoon resembling an artist's palette of blues and greens, was named “Most Romantic Exotic Spot 2012” in About.com’s Romantic Readers’ Choice Awards.
About.com’s Honeymoons and Romantic Travel Guide editor Susan Breslow Sardone notes, “Bora Bora, considered by many to be the world’s most beautiful island, exerts a powerful lure on honeymoon couples and romantic duos. The very name conjures an exotic escape.”
Paul Gauguin Cruises was named a finalist in About.com's Romantic Readers' Choice Awards for Most Romantic Cruise Line 2012.
About.com editors write, “ A haven for sensualists, Paul Gauguin Cruises sail the blue-green waters ringing the islands of Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific, enabling couples to hopscotch from one tropical fantasy island to another, yet not have to change rooms even once. The luxurious small cruise is equal to a boutique hotel at sea, the ship numbering only 151 cabins and a passenger capacity of 332.”
