Valentine's Day gift from Paul Gauguin Cruises: $200 spa credit

Paul Gauguin Cruises offer a Valentine's Day spa credit that passengers can use through the end of the year

What happens when you add the romance of a South Pacific cruise to Valentine's Day? On Paul Gauguin Cruises, it means a $200 on-board spa credit and extra goodies too.

The cruise line's Valentine's Gift Package is good for cruises on the MS Paul Gauguin. The ship carries 332 guests and sails around Tahiti and other French Polynesia and South Pacific destinations.

The gift is good for those who reserve a cabin by Feb. 14 on any Paul Gauguin cruise through the end of the year. The $200 credit -- one per booking -- allows you to pick from spa treatments at the ship's Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm.

A glance at the spa's services online shows $200 would cover two 25-minute massages or two 30-minute body scrubs. Or you could spring for the 40-minute Aroma Steam Bath for two which costs a little more ($210).

Other extras include a bottle of sparkling wine and a box of chocolates.

Sample fare on the luxury cruise line: $3,995 per person, based on double occupancy, for a seven-night cruise to Tahiti and the Society Islands. The cost includes all meals as well as round-trip airfare from Los Angeles.

The gift is good for new bookings, and the offer can't be combined with other discounts. Use the code "Valentines2015" when calling the cruise line about the deal.
