Olivia Offers Tahiti Cruise on 6-Star Paul Gauguin

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ — Olivia, the lifestyle company that connects, transforms and celebrates the lives of lesbians and their families and friends, announces a luxurious Tahiti Cruise aboard the six-star Paul Gauguin, one of the world’s best small ships, Sept. 3-10, 2005.

“This cruise is one of our most lavish, not only because of the fabulous ship, but also because the scenery is so breathtaking and lush,” Amy Errett, Olivia CEO, said. “Our chef is world renowned, there’s a wonderful spa, and everything is just exquisite. Really, there’s no better way to relax.”

To ensure the highest level of personal attention, the Paul Gauguin is staffed with one crew member for every 1.5 guests. And when guests want to be alone, they can retreat to their cabins where all staterooms and suites have sweeping ocean views and white marble bathrooms. In any of the three restaurants on board, dining is elevated to an art form. Guests can also be pampered in the Paul Gauguin’s Carita Spa, an oasis from care featuring massage, thalasotherapy, aromatherapy, wraps and steam room treatments.

From the sophisticated city of Papteete to the waterfalls of Raiatea, guests can quench their appetite for adventure while cruising through the distinct islands of Tahiti. For water-sports enthusiasts, reef-enclosed Bora Bora boasts some of the world’s best scuba diving and snorkeling. With the Paul Gauguin’s state-of-the-art marine sports deck, guests can explore Tahiti by kayaking, snorkeling, diving, windsurfing or water skiing in the pristine waters.

The lavish Tahiti Cruise is the most recent in a series of exciting announcements from Olivia, like Showtime filming part of an episode for their hit drama “The L Word” on board Olivia’s Mayan Caribbean Cruise, a performance by country music superstar Wynonna on their Four-night Caribbean Cruise, a performance by Melissa Etheridge on their Eastern Caribbean Cruise and a performance by Mary Chapin-Carpenter on their Alaska Discovery Cruise.
