    Dear Alumni & Friends:

    The evolution of ancient volcanic activity beneath the sea, sculpted by waves and wind over millennia, created the idyllic islands of Tahiti, Huahine, Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea. Experience an earthly paradise—majestic volcanic peaks rising from emerald green jungles, chalk-white atolls, pristine beaches and turquoise lagoons—that have beckoned travelers, artists and writers for centuries during this nine-night land/sea sojourn. Enjoy two nights in colorful Papeete, Tahiti, and seven nights aboard the Five-Star�(Plus) M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN, specially designed to cruise the clear aquamarine waters of the South Pacifi c. We invite you to join us for this splendid opportunity featuring round-trip air included from Los Angeles✤ and Early Booking Savings through July 29, 2014! Cruising aboard the intimate, Five-Star�, 166-Stateroom M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN provides an unmatched small ship experience amid the distinctively beautiful islands, atolls and motus of Tahiti and French Polynesia. And, a whole host of complimentary features aboard ship are included: all onboard gratuities; complimentary wine, spirits and soft drinks served throughout the ship, including at every lunch and dinner, and replenished in your Suite or Stateroom throughout the cruise; complimentary water sports; and even complimentary personal butler service in Suite Category 1 and Stateroom Category 2. Cultural enrichment abounds in the natural environment of French Polynesia. During your stay on Tahiti, explore the west coast of the island and learn more about the history, environment and culture of Polynesia and admire the unique private collection in the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands. 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 marine life, and breathe in the fresh fragrances of vanilla, gardenia and jasmine that permeate the island air. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Five-Star� M.S. PAUL GAUGUIN cruising in its “home ports,” featuring air included from Los Angeles.✤ We encourage you to book now while space and Early Booking Savings are available!

    Sincerely,

    Leslie Hayes Traveling Wildcats Coordinator
