Paul Gauguin Cruises: Luxurious Small-Ship VoyagesEnriching and Inspiring Explorations of the World’s Most Enchanting Destinations
Paul Gauguin Cruises offers luxurious, small ship voyages in Tahiti, French Polynesia, and the South Pacific, on the award-winning, 332-guest m/s Paul Gauguin, and in the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe aboard the deluxe 88-guest m/v Tere Moana.
Designed to navigate the islands of French Polynesia and the South Pacific, The Gauguin is able to enter lagoons that are inaccessible to larger ships. Seven- to 14-night voyages are offered, highlighting exquisite islands, Polynesian culture, and stunning scenery. The Moana brings guests closer to unique destinations in the wider world including Panama Canal transits and transatlantic crossings.
Both The Gauguin and The Moana feature all-inclusive value with oceanview accommodations and superior service distinguished by true Polynesian hospitality. Cruises include gourmet dining, complimentary beverages (including select wines and spirits), shipboard entertainment, onboard gratuities, and watersports.
Paul Gauguin is recognized as the “#1 Small-Ship Cruise Line” and the “#1 Small-Ship Cruise Line for Families” in Travel + Leisure’s 2014 World’s Best Awards.

Your introduction to French Polynesia will be Tahiti, located halfway between Los Angeles and Sydney. Start getting your bearings as you explore the lively capital Papeete, exploring its markets and museums and heading just beyond the city center to marvel at waterfalls and sugar-sand beaches. At the harbor, you’ll board the m/s Paul Gauguin and be welcomed by attentive staff who already know your name (the crew-to-guest ratio is 1-to-1.5). During the week’s cruise ahead, you’ll hear from onboard experts about local history, culture, and flora and fauna and catch performances by Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines, local Tahitians who serve as the ship’s own troupe of entertainers and storytellers.
