The ship is lovely. It holds around 100 guests ... The ship is set up just right - it never seems crowded.

For a small ship, the Paul Gauguin had a little of everything the big ships have, even a small casino. What it did NOT have was a crowded feeling!
Wind Spirit
3 of 5 Best Small Cruise Ships for Public Rooms
The parts I love the best are the evenings. The sail away. The sails open and ahhhhh. So lovely. And the nights on the bow of the boat. The stars so bright and the moon on the water. Truly magical.

Lots of public spaces indoor and out. Never had to go hunting for a deck chair. The small pool deck aft was a great place to relax.
