How will I know how much to ask for?
When you set up your Paul Gauguin Cruises celebration registry, we give you a suggested gift amount for each tour or activity per person or per couple (see notes to registrant if applicable). However, you are free to ask for whatever amount you would like. We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all guests and checking with your travel professional or supplier for exact pricing. All prices vary by location, availability and are subject to change without notice.
You can break down the amounts any way you choose. For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for "2 gifts of $100.00" or "4 gifts of $50.00," etc.
For registries with items that are being booked for you or sent directly to you or your hotel, you will find the amount will be preset for you in differing increments.Back To Top

How much does it cost to use the Paul Gauguin Cruises celebration registry and "My Trip" website?
We never charge a set up fee, and during the sign up process we are the only registry that allows you to choose
whether you'd like the 7% service charge to be added or deducted from each gift amount. If a credit card is used to make a purchase, then a standard 3% credit card fee will be charged to the credit card holder. (This fee goes directly to Electronic Merchant Systems, not us, and is for secure credit card processing for your guests.) The service fee charged is 7%. The service charge covers your account management, your trip web page, order processing, gift announcements, etc. This service eliminates other typical registry costs, such as shipping and gift-wrap charges. Announcement and gift cards are free, and can be downloaded at any time. The registry saves your guests time and gas with the comfort and convenience of purchasing their gift from their home or office. They don't even have to buy another card! Guests from a distance can also give you a contribution towards your trip with ease using their credit card over the internet. Also, there is no hassle or embarrassment of returning or exchanging unwanted gifts for you!Back To Top
