"We are thrilled to be the number one small-ship cruise line for families," said Diane Moore, president of Paul Gauguin Cruises. "Thank you to the readers of Travel + Leisure for this special award along with the high marks we received in service and small-ship categories."
During the awards ceremony, Travel + Leisure did a special presentation that recognized the line's Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program, which is offered to families abroad on summer and holiday sailings. In addition to this award, Paul Gauguin Cruises was also listed as one of Travel + Leisure “World's Best Small-Ship Cruise Lines” of 2013 and honored on the magazine's "World's Best Service" 2013 list in June in the Top Cruises: Small Ships category.
The magazine's annual readers' survey reveals favorite cities, hotels, islands, cruise lines, spas, airlines, airports, and other travel-related places. Cruise lines were rated in categories of cabins, restaurants/food, service, itineraries/destinations, excursions, activities, and value.
