LE LEVANT To Paul Gauguin

Paul Gauguin Cruises, luxury operators of a single ship namesake, (the 332-passenger PAUL GAUGUIN) vessel in the South Pacific, has announced it will be acquiring the luxurious, 1998-built Compagnie du Ponant’s LE LEVANT.

Following an extensive renovation, LE LEVANT will be renamed MOANA and will sail in the Mediterranean during the summer and on Caribbean and Latin American itineraries in the winter.

Diane Moore, President of Paul Gauguin Cruises, stated, “We are monumentally proud to add a second ship to our Pacific Beachcomber portfolio and Paul Gauguin Cruises family.  This is an incredibly huge branding achievement for the growth of our cruise line and I look forward to welcoming fans of the [PAUL] GAUGUIN on board our latest addition.”

The new MOANA is expected to begin service late in 2012.
