Paul Gauguin Cruises…

…operates the award-winning luxury cruise ship, the m/s Paul Gauguin, in the islands of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. They provide luxury experience for their guests and recently added another liner which sails the Mediterranean and Caribbean waters. This cruiseline has won many awards including “#1 Small-Ship Cruise Line” Travel + Leisure, World’s Best Awards for 2014 and “6-Star Rating” Stern’s Guide to the Cruise Vacation (2011 through 2014). Both ships feature ocean view and balcony staterooms.


The 322-passenger 5-Star m/s Paul Gauguin was built specifically for the shallow waters of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. Launched in 1998, The Gauguin is the longest continually operating year-round luxury cruise ship in that area. No other luxury ship in history has offered this level of single-destination focus and expertise on a year-round basis for such an long period of time. On board you’ll find constant reminders of Gauguin’s time in these islands in the form of artwork, photographs and museum quality exhibits. The atmosphere aboard the ship radiates warmth, casual luxury amid a Polynesian flair. A troupe of Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to all departures.

This cruiseline provides an all-inclusive experience so all complimentary beverages are included as are gratuities for the ship staff. Your in-room mini bar is replenished daily. Premium liquors, specialty wines, and certain Cognacs may incur an additional charge. The Paul Gauguin features a sports deck and provides snorkel gear for your use. Paddleboards and kayaks are also available.

Like The m/s Paul Gauguin, The m/v Moana will specialize in warm-weather destinations, with an emphasis on delivering unique itineraries their small ships can offer. This ship will sail during the summer months in Europe and winter months in the Caribbean and Latin America.
