Welcome to NPNEF (the National Professionals Network Enrichment Foundation), We are the cruise-planning successor to NPN. In the past, we mixed business with pleasure by adding water. Now, we are cruising for a cause. Our purpose is to raise funds for African-American students and educational institutions by providing travel opportunities that broaden the knowledge, cultural understanding and professional expertise of our membership. In short, we want to raise money for college educations.

Come with us to Tahiti and join us for an eight-night immersion in luxury, aboard the Paul Gauguin, named for the artist who captured the romance of the South Pacific. In his most famous masterpieces he depicted the life, the habits and the spirit of the Tahitian people. On this cruise, you can experience the exotic lifestyle and the beautiful people that inspired his paintings.

Sailing from Papeete, Tahiti, we will follow in the wake of Captain Cook and explore French Polynesia, making stops in Bora Bora, Huahine, Moorea and Taha’a. Even the names evoke images of moonlit lagoons, outrigger canoes and the breadfruit trees that filled the hold of Captain Bligh’s HMS Bounty.


On board a five-star ship that was specifically designed to pamper its passengers, we will dine on gourmet French cuisine and savor Polynesian flavors. All wine, spirits and soft drinks are included in the cruise fare. We will learn about the history of the islands, indulge ourselves in the spa services and enjoy the unique marina that opens up to provide us with a private water playground.

NPNEF exclusives:

In addition to private day tours, there will be NPNEF group activities like our Black History Challenge and Bid Whist Tournament. As usual, after dinner, our musicians and singers will provide the entertainment that make our cruises so memorable.

If you have ever dreamed of visiting the South Pacific in a yacht-like atmosphere, this is your cruise.

Register now. The Paul Gauguin is relatively small, and cabins are limited. This means that early registration is critical. Book today for an unforgettable experience.
