Tahiti-based Paul Gauguin Cruises is a cruise line that steers clear of the norm and offers its guests an entirely personal interpretation of seaborne life. The deluxe, all-inclusive cruise experience that is offered aboard the Gauguin is tailored to the tropical surroundings and unparalleled wonders of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. The on-board ambiance is a romantic interpretation of this serene corner of the globe. Old photos of Tahiti as well as Polynesian artefacts add to the charm. Like the islands the Gauguin visits, the spirit of this cruise line is laid-back while still maintaining high standards of luxury and pampering. This delightful vessel continually wins awards, including recognition as one of the 'Top 20 Small Cruise Ships' by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.
Itineraries range from seven to 14 nights; each includes time in the Society Islands with visits to the company's idyllic private beach in Bora Bora as well as its private islet, Motu Mahana, where you can chill out at the beach barbecue and bar and enjoy the sensual Polynesian entertainment.
This enterprising company also owns the sleek Tere Moana - an 88-passenger mega-yacht that cruises off-the-beaten-track ports in the Caribbean, Latin America and Europe. Itineraries are unlike any other cruise company and set a course for charming ports that other small ships never visit. On board, the panache and style that is evident at every turn really does deliver an all-inclusive niche cruise experience we feel sure you will appreciate.
