Explore French Polynesia & the South Seas onboard this award winning, intimate luxury vessel.
The m/s Paul Gauguin takes its name from the French painter who spent the last years of his life in Tahiti. This intimate 332-guest vessel was specifically designed to cruise the South Pacific and sails these storied isles year-round. The Gauguin’s small size allows you to visit small ports and shallow lagoons, creating countless intimate opportunities to explore.
The ship’s informal ambience reflects the relaxed nature of the region. A much-loved troupe known as Les Gauguines — local Tahitian entertainers and storytellers — add an authentic touch to life on board. A crew-to-guest ratio of 1 to 1.5 ensures the highest level of personal attention. All suites and staterooms feature ocean views, and nearly 70 percent have private balconies.
Best of all, The Gauguin offers an all-inclusive experience, with airfare from Los Angeles, gratuities, 24-hour room service, beverages including select wines and spirits, and private beach and island experiences, all included in the cruise fare.
The ship also features a retractable watersports marina from which you can kayak or windsurf. Or set out in a Zodiac® for optional diving excursions; The Gauguin is the only luxury ship in French Polynesia to offer PADI certification onboard. The South Seas are a divers paradise.
