Paul Gauguin Cruises

They currently operate one cruise ship, the m/s Paul Gauguin which offers an unparalleled cruise experience in the South Pacific. Launched in 1998, the renowned 5+ Star cruise liner, the Paul Gauguin was specifically built for the waters around Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific and as such, is unmatched when it comes to experience and expertise on the waters of the South Pacific.

Currently Paul Gauguin Cruises operate only one cruise ship – the m/s Paul Gauguin. They have in the past also operated the mv Tere Moana, however this cruise liners is now operated by Tauck, allowing Paul Gauguin to focus on delivering an unrivalled experience in the South Pacific.

The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to glide through the shallow waters of the South Pacific.

Don’t let the size of the ship fool you – the Paul Gauguin is packed full of luxuries that you would find on the larger cruise lines. With spacious cabin rooms (70% with a balcony), an onboard watersports marina, three dining venues, an extensive spa and five-star service, this is a cruise liner packed full of luxurious finishing touches.
