Owned by Pacific Beachcomber S.C., the leader in French Polynesia luxury destination resorts, Paul Gauguin Cruises operates the award-winning luxury cruise ship m/s Paul Gauguin, providing a luxury cruise experience tailored to the unparalleled wonders of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. A second small luxury ship, the m/vTere Moana, joined the fleet in late 2012. The renowned, 5+-star m/s Paul Gauguin was built specifically to sail the 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 the South Pacific. No other luxury ship in history has offered this level of single-destination focus and expertise on a year-round basis for such an extended period of time. Like The Gauguin, The Moana will specialize in warm-weather destinations, with an emphasis on delivering unique itineraries that larger ships cannot offer and exploring hidden ports throughout these regions. The ship will sail during the summer months in Europe and winter in the Caribbean and Latin America.

The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti and French Polynesia, visiting small ports that larger ships can’t reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Seas. 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), an onboard watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere aboard the ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. If you book your cruise now, you’ll be sailing aboard The Gauguin at her finest, having recently completed a multimillion-dollar renovation. And our beloved troupe of Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to every sailing.

7 Night Cruise sailing from Papeete roundtrip aboard Paul Gauguin.

Big discoveries await you in “Little Tahiti” (Tahiti Iti), the smaller of the two landmasses that comprise the island of Tahiti. No other cruise line offers you the opportunity to explore this region of wild coastline, ancient petroglyphs and marae (temples), and pockets of authentic Polynesian culture. But because The Gauguin is owned by French Polynesia’s leading luxury hotel and cruise operator, we are the experts to the region, with resources no one else can match. Come sail the waters of French Polynesia that are our ship’s home, and let us give you an unparalleled, comprehensive view of the real Tahiti. This brand-new itinerary also features Bora Bora, Moorea, Huahine, and our own private paradise off the coast of Taha’a.

Highlights of this cruise:

Papeete
Tahiti is the largest of the Polynesian islands with its population most concentrated in Papeete which is a major shipping crossroad located on Tahiti’s northwest corner.

Shopping-lovers will enjoy Papeete’s chic shops, busy municipal market, waterfront area and lively mix of French, Polynesian, and Chinese cultures. Its suburbs sprawl up the mountains overlooking the city for miles along the coast in both directions.

The interior of the island offers splendid and unforgettable opportunities for hiking or safari 4×4 excursions, with impressive waterfalls, archeological sites, grottos and more.

Bora Bora
Bora Bora is the largest island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia in the southern Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 kilometres northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu. The main settlement on the island is Vaitape.

The main attraction on the island is its lagoon, which is excellent for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. There are a variety of other nautical activities, as well as horse riding, biking and jeep tours of the island.

Moorea
Moorea is situated approximately 17 km’s northwest of Tahiti, in the French Polynesian Society group of islands, located in the South Pacific Ocean. The scenery on Moorea is spectacular with its volcanic peaks best viewed from Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay, or from the Belvedere Lookout point between the two bays. Its mountain slopes are covered with rain forest or pineapple plantations, and white sand beaches border crystal blue lagoons.

Attractions on the island include the Tiki village, the beautiful large garden and old colonial home at Kellum, Opunohu valley and island tours. There are a broad range of nautical activities on offer, including deep sea fishing, motor boat cruising, sailing, scuba diving, coral gazing and shell collecting using glass-bottom boats.
