Paul Gauguin to stay with RSSC through 2008

FORT LAUDERDALE -- Radisson Seven Seas Cruises renewed its contract through 2008 to manage the Paul Gauguin, the Tahiti-based vessel that was purchased in 2004 by Boston-based Grand Circle Corp. and Vantage Deluxe World Travel.

The ship, which has sailed in French Polynesia since its debut in 1998, will continue to sail around the Tahitian Islands through the Radisson contact. The contract was to expire at the end of 2006.

The ship will sail from Australia in 2006, following a 22-day drydock in Brisbane, Australia, in January. The 18-day cruise from Brisbane to Papeete, Tahiti, is already sold out, Radisson said.

Plus, in response to what Radisson said was demand for more adventurous South Pacific itineraries, certain departures of the vessels seven-, 10- and 14-day sailings will include an option for six-night land packages in New Zealand and Australia after the cruise. The post-cruise packages start at $1,795 per person.
