m/s Paul Gauguin

She offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort and luxury.

The atmosphere aboard the ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. And its beloved troupe of Gauguines — a local Tahitian group who serve as cruise staff, entertainers and storytellers — add the unique personality of Tahiti to every cruise.

Your first dive into crystal-clear waters will spoil you for anything else under the sun or the seven seas. Watersports are a highlight of the Polynesian experience, and the m/s Paul Gauguin is constructed to take full advantage of these irresistible waters.

A string of emerald islands, fruitful and fertile, carpeted with lush rain forests and vibrant life. This is the ultimate luxury cruising experience promised to you by Paul Gauguin.
