What's a Paul Gauguin cruise like?
Itineraries are well-balanced with a variety of outdoor and water-based activities, fine dining, enrichment talks and evening entertainment. With a complement of up to 332 guests, the ship is small, yet large enough to provide many comforts and amenities. The m/s Paul Gauguin’s water sports marina sets the ship apart, allowing you to access a variety of water sports directly from the ship, including kayaking, windsurfing and water skiing, snorkeling and a PADI-certified dive program utilizing zodiac craft. Onshore adventures range from golf to four-wheel drive excursions.
The added touches
Ocean views are standard in Paul Gauguin cabins and most staterooms have balconies. Your in-room comforts include European linens, feather-down duvets, robes and slippers. Your mini-fridge is replenished daily with soft drinks, beer and bottled water. When you reserve a category B and higher stateroom, butler services are included.
Who will enjoy it?
A Paul Gauguin Tahiti cruise especially appeals to couples and honeymooners who enjoy water sports and romantic getaways. Summer family cruises are also appropriate for children over age 9, who can enjoy Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment program.
Our recommendation
This mid-size ship, being in the South Pacific year around, offers very good enrichment programs onboard and ashore, and is well maintained and offers quite a good dining experience. A great choice and convenient way to visit French Polynesian islands.
