Paul Gauguin Cruises

When Paul Gauguin first sailed to the South Pacific in search of artistic inspiration, he discovered mesmeric landscapes and forged a deep connection to the locals. His spirit of freedom, creativity, and adventure fuels Paul Gauguin cruises to this day.

Multi-award winning Paul Gauguin Cruises are the height of exclusivity and refinement. Crewed by a proud team of local Tahitians extending genuine Polynesian hospitality, this is the premier way to experience the South Pacific.

Only with Paul Gauguin Cruises can you visit their private island, Motu Mahana, and experience its incredible range of specially crafted food, drink, and live music. Boasting its own onboard marina, the m/s Paul Gauguin puts you in the heart of the aquatic action and offers instant access to the serene turquoise waters and a host of activities including a walk along the ocean bed during an exhilarating Aqua-safari.

As well as an exclusive troupe of Tahitian entertainers providing enriching entertainment, the ship welcomes expert lecturers and speakers onto each voyage to discuss the incredible history of the South Pacific, its flora and fauna, conservation, vibrant culture, and stunning coral reefs. And for foodies there are three delectable dining venues - Le Grill, La Veranda and L’Etoile. Each restaurant offers tantalizing choices made with local ingredients and prepared by executive chefs who effortlessly fuse the French cuisine with the remarkable flavours of the islands.

The pièce de résistance of the cruise’s entertainment is “Tableau Gauguin,” an exclusive “living art” performance that pays a stunning homage to Paul Gauguin’s iconic post-impressionist paintings of the islands. It’s the ultimate way to encapsulate the spirit of the South Pacific and is sure to leave you feeling exactly as Paul Gauguin did when he first put brush to canvas – truly inspired.
