The beauty of Tahiti and the Society Islands has left people spellbound for centuries and there’s no better way to discover it for yourself than cruising aboard the luxurious Paul Gauguin.  Gliding through turquoise waters, pausing at a deserted motu and delighting you with perfect day after perfect day, the Paul Gauguin crew will ensure your every need is taken care of. 

Your fully inclusive fly/cruise package starts from your own doorstep with chauffeur driven luxury car transfers from collecting you from your home to take you to the airport (conditions apply) in time for your flight to Papeete.  On arrival, you will be met at the airport and taken to your accommodation where you’ll have two nights to relax and unwind in Papeete before boarding the MS Paul Gauguin. 

Then, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy the luxury onboard the ship as you set sail, heading for the beautiful island of Raiatea.  This is where Tahiti gained her reputation for picture-perfect lagoons and sun-kissed, white-sand beaches.  You’ll enjoy day after day of decadent relaxation, exploring, snorkelling, swimming, eating and drinking as you visit the magical islands of Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea. 

On-board, the crew are attentive and eager to ensure you enjoy every moment of your cruise.  With 217 crew to just 332 guests, you’ll enjoy one of the highest crew-to-guest ratios of any luxury cruise ship.

Dining is a five-star culinary adventure, with every one of the onboard dining options included in the cruise fare.  In the evenings, enjoy entertainment provided by Paul Gauguin’s own troupe of Tahitian entertainers.

Suites and staterooms are spacious and well appointed, all with ocean views and 70% offering private balconies.
