Paul Gauguin: Cruising in Paradise

Paul Gauguin: Cruising in Paradise

An undisputed leader in a wonderful, upscale cruising experience through the waters of Tahiti, Fiji and the South Pacific, Paul Gauguin Cruises operates the award-winning ship, m/s Paul Gauguin, built specifically to sail in this enchanting part of the world. And, recently announced, two new 230-guest ships will join the fleet in 2022.

Now a member of the PONANT family, a world leader of small-ship cruising, guests aboard the m/s Paul Gauguin enjoy a level of single destination focus and expertise rarely seen anywhere else.

The cruise line has thought of everything to deliver a cruise vacation that is second to none. Enjoy lovely oceanview accommodations with balconies in more than 70 percent of its staterooms, gourmet dining curated by award winning chef Jean-Pierre Vigato, a spa offering signature treatments, an expansive deck and outdoor pool, fitness center, and a lounge with live entertainment that provides guests with a taste of the rich Polynesian culture of the region.

Offering opportunities to explore on a year-round basis, the Gauguin also features a watersports marina for kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and PADI-certified SCUBA diving programs. Visit the cruise line’s own private island escape of Motu Mahana, located off the coast of Taha’a, as well as its exclusive white sand beach retreat, just off the iconic island of Bora Bora.

Where a personalized and attentive level of service meets extraordinary value, the cruise line’s all-inclusive model means every little detail has been taken care of, including roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles (subject to space availability), roundtrip airport/pier transfers, all shipboard meals in a choice of three venues, complimentary 24-hour room service, complimentary beverages including select wines and spirits, onboard gratuities, presentations by onboard experts and local naturalists, and much more.

With a maximum capacity of 332 guests, the Gauguin offers guests the opportunity to visit intimate ports that are inaccessible to larger cruise ships and in one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the world… a truly memorable experience in an undeniably magical setting.
