    Dear Alumni and Friends,
         The evolution of ancient volcanic activity beneath the sea, sculpted by
    waves and wind over millennia, created the idyllic islands of Tahiti, Raiatea,
    Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea. Well preserved, they have beckoned travellers
    to their shores for centuries. This earthly paradise is yours to enjoy during this
    nine-night land/sea sojourn with two nights in Papeete, Tahiti, and seven nights
    aboard the Five-Star M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN, specially designed to cruise the
    crystalline waters of the South Pacific. We invite you to join us for this splendid
    opportunity featuring Air included from Los Angeles1 and Early Booking
    Savings through July 15, 2011!
         Cruising aboard the intimate, deluxe, 166-Stateroom M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN
    provides an unmatched small ship experience amid the islands, atolls and
    motus of Tahiti and French Polynesia. And, a whole host of complimentary
    features aboard ship are included: all onboard gratuities; select
    complimentary wine, spirits and nonalcoholic beverages replenished in your
    stateroom or suite and served with every lunch and dinner; complimentary
    water sports available for your choosing; and even complimentary personal
    butler service in categories Suite 1 and Stateroom 2.
         Cultural enrichment abounds in the natural environment of French
    Polynesia populated by the lovely Gauguines. During your stay on Tahiti, an
    exclusive Paul Gauguin excursion to the west coast of the island explores the
    artist’s sites préférés, including the grotto where he swam and the museum
    dedicated to his original engravings, gouaches and even sketches and block
    prints unseen in years. An onboard naturalist will provide a variety of talks and
    demonstrations about the islands’ history and cultural heritage throughout the
    cruise. You can observe—and even snorkel and swim with—extraordinary bird
    and marine life, and breathe in the fresh fragrances of vanilla, gardenia and
    jasmine that permeate the island air.
         This TAHITI AND FRENCH POLYNESIA travel program is the perfect opportunity to
    enjoy the Five-Star M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN cruising in its “home port,” air included
    from Los Angeles1 and Early Booking Savings! We encourage you to book now,
