Setting Sail on the m/v Tere Moana


Setting Sail on the m/v Tere Moana

March 18, 2013

In this post, we are excited to bring you new photos of our 90-guest m/v Tere Moana.

m/v Tere Moana

Those of you who have cruised on the m/s Paul Gauguin may note some similarities as you view these, but you will also see The Moana is her own special vessel.  She is much smaller and more intimate, yet so suited to bring you to enchanting destinations in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe.

The Moana in the Caribbean

Before setting sail for her inaugural voyage in the Caribbean, the ship underwent extensive renovations during drydock in Lisbon, Portugal, receiving new furniture, upholstery, art, lighting, wall coverings, carpeting, window treatments, paint schemes, flooring, and floor coverings in staterooms and public spaces.

Private balconies were added to eight of ship’s 45 staterooms, all of which have ocean views. The Moana’s staterooms feature king-size beds, convertible to twin-bed configuration and donned with fine linens; a flatscreen TV; DVD/CD player; iPod® docking station; stately armchair and table; vanity table and chair; robes and slippers; an in-stateroom refrigerator replenished daily with soft drinks, beer, and bottled water; and bathroom with sumptuous bath products.
