No other cruise line in the world explores Tahiti, French Polynesia or Southeast Asia quite like Paul Gauguin Cruises, so we decided to take you on a verbal and visual journey of this paradise – Paul Gauguin Style!
She was purpose built for exploring the shallow waters and lagoon’s of our planet’s tropical paradise. She blends in effortlessly with the area that surrounds her and she visits many places that other ships cannot. In short, she is the only vessel to consider when thinking about a Polynesia cruise.
Onboard she offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort, and luxury. Spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. Exactly what you need when sailing some of the most superb regions in the world.
The majority of crew aboard m/s Paul Gauguin are Tahitian and are known as Les Gauguin’s, a reminder every day that you are experiencing a true South Pacific cruise and with local experts! You will find one crew member per every 1.5 guests, so the service onboard as you would expect, dedicated and attentive.
There are several dining options for you to choose from. L’Etoile, which offers a variety of choice for appetizers, soups, salads and mains. La Veranda, which features a 7 course tasting menu and several a la carte dishes and Le Grill, a casual outdoor restaurant specializing in Asian/Fusion cuisine with a focus on sea food. The catch of the day is often just that! Of course no cruise with Paul Gauguin to Polynesia would be complete without their legendary ‘Polynesian night’. A celebratory 6-course feast featuring a variety of Tahitian specialities.
When it comes to shoreside adventure Paul Gauguin have it truly perfected. Some of the best scuba diving in the world is to be had in Tahiti and as luck would have it, you are with the perfect cruise line to experience it. If you want to do something truly unique then you must dive the clear waters of Bora Bora. Even if you have never dived before, you can take a 2-hour beginner class with dive masters in the ships main swimming pool – this will give you enough experience to take two beginner dives ashore, one in the Bora Bora Lagoon and the other a Moorea Shark Dive. We know, it sounds amazing! If you want to opt for something more land based then when in Taha’a (Motu Mahana) you can enjoy Paul Gauguin’s very own South Seas paradise! White-sand beaches with swaying palms, crystal-clear waters, and gentle breezes.
