Paul Gauguin

At the turn of the century, impressionist Paul Gauguin travelled to the tropical shores of French Polynesia to create some of his most renowned masterpieces. Today Paul Gauguin’s intimate, luxury voyages through French Polynesia and the South Pacific allow you to experience these remarkable places on the vacation of a lifetime that is part of the company’s commitment to also benefit local people and support the protection of this unique part of our fragile and beautiful planet. Paul Gauguin Cruises operates the highest-rated and longest continually-sailing cruise ship in the South Pacific, the renowned m/s Paul Gauguin, designed to explore the pristine lagoons of these islands, while their proud team of local Tahitians extend genuine Polynesian hospitality. Artful onboard features include luxurious, oceanview accommodations with balconies in select staterooms, gourmet dining curated by award-winning chef Jean-Pierre Vigato, a lavish spa offering signature treatments, an expansive deck and outdoor pool, fitness center, a boutique, and a lounge with live entertainment introducing you to Polynesia’s vibrant cultures. The m/s Paul Gauguin also offers a watersports marina for kayaking, paddle boarding, and PADI SCUBA diving programs. Only with Paul Gauguin Cruises can you visit their private island of Motu Mahana where food, drink, and live music await as well as our exclusive beach retreat in Bora Bora. The m/s Paul Gauguin underwent renovations in February 2021, the vision: elegant Polynesian bespoke style visualized through a chic, modern lens. This new décor enriches our guests’ experience while sailing through the multi-hued blue lagoons of Tahiti, French Polynesia, Fiji and the South Pacific. A palette incorporating shades of blue, taupe, green and pearl complements warm wood finishes, woven textiles, Polynesian motifs and stylish gold accents.
